Dota (Defense of the Ancients) is a custom map on Warcraft 3 Frozen Throne. The aim of the game is to defeat the opposing team's ancient. For Sentinel their Ancient is the Tree of Life. For Scourge it is the Frozen Throne. You pick a hero from either Sentinel or Scourge and you control him throughout the hole game. Every 30-60 seconds a wave of creeps come out, which u cannot control and they help push into the other teams base. Once you get into their base, that is when you can start pushing towards defeating their ancient. Your hero also has a level cap of 25. You hero has a maximum of 4 abilities which he can use to defeat other heroes. With each level, you can choose a different spell, or upgrade the same spell u choose prior, and make it better. For your hero you can also buy him items and upgrade.

Hope this helps.
