Defense of the Ancients

Valve software has filed a trademark application for the "DOTA," leading to speculation that the company is working on an officially licensed Defense of the Ancients product. Defense of the Ancients, if you're not in the know, is one of the most popular Warcraft 3 mods out there, from developer IceFrog. Defense of the Ancients is custom game built using the Warcraft 3 map editor in which players control a single hero in a team battle to destroy the other team's base.

We have no official word from Valve, but are expecting an official announcement soon.
