I see you guys have a section for skins. Do you think the dota 2 community will embrace skins and mods?

I have been a big fan of modding for quite some time.

I hope there are community modders for skins. Always good to see them down the road. I hope there aren't any server side.

Skins aren't bad. I just think they should be left client side. Adding server side adds a weird advantage.

Having the option to buy skins like LoL will be a money maker for Valve. Their business model will determine what will happen with skins i think

Very true. I think even if its a 1 time cost an in game reward currency will still give them skin purchases or something along those lines to avoid the game being stagnant.

If valve makes dota2 f2p, they will deifnately make skins cost money. If they don't make it F2P I think they will have skins as part of achivements. IE 10/100/1000/10000 kills for new costume, 10/100/1000/10000 assist for new weapon, stuff like that maybe.

They will definitely embrace mods for sure. Mods are way too big of a factor these days.

The thing I like about Valve/Steam are the achievements. This will definitely put an edge over LoL and stuff. I mean how many people are addicted to getting achievements? Seriously.

I know this one guy, who got this achievement on Metal gear solid... He had to play the game over the 8th time... Basicly you need to beat the game, no alerts, no kills, pure trank under a certain time for this achievement lol... Some people are achievement crazy...

I think the skins will be Valve bought and not custom made.

I personally enjoy skins on heroes. Not only is it a huge cash-driver for Valve but it adds flavor and customization to heroes that can, after a period of time, become tired.

I hope they make skins, honestly. I'd appreciate server side of course, if not you can't expect people to transact. You find that peoples' memory of the heroes comes with the silhouette and not color differences.

Though I would still love community made client-side skins, the community always comes up with the best ideas.

Dad. Gamer. Still a kid. Professional blagger. Too awesome for words.

your idea is horrible

I agree with the skins. As long as they dont change the sillouhettes of the character im ok. I am sure some tournamenta though will notcallow custom skins as it throws people off etc its really a qq factor for some. If dota 2 is f2p then skins and customization will be a major rvenue driver

I just hope they don't have talent trees like in LoL or levels with skills. That throws off the game entirely. I don't think it would be dota 2 thotugh and from my indications I don't think they will

It's going to happen for sure when the game releases. It's like staple thing now in MOBA games these days.

Probably not at this stage of Beta. I think it's still way too early. We're missing a lot of heroes. Get those heroes in!

I dont think they will. They announced that Dota 2 will be the same as the old Dota gamewise. They just wanted to revamp the graphics.
