Is a DotS section dead or what?[edit]

Just wanted to confirm that this section is dead and there is no one to maintain information here actual.

DotS1 is being partially developed, though the appearance of DotS2 will at least be a reason for me not to contribute any longer for these pages. --Helepolis (talk) 07:59, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

DotS is undergoing remake, so is the wiki soon[edit]

Well, as ApharmdB has been working very hard on a remake of DotS, I've decided to also start making work of the wiki pages. Inspired from Dota2 wiki, I decided to make a similar box for the hero info and seperate boxes for the skills. Although I intend on making the skill tables wider with the notes below them. It doesn't have to major fancy like Dota2 but can't hurt to be close enough. So in a nutshell/TLDR:

> Main page more fancy.
> Girl page overview will be grouped by attributes.
> Templates for girl pages will be roughly similar to Dota2.
> Optional, items will be shown in quick overview and long overview.
> General info page will wait until we have more knowledge on the core of the map.


all but one of the images necrodesu uploaded seem to not show up when viewed on a smart phone or tablet. any reason for this?Dr Rawr 22:03, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Purge 'System' page and make work of 'Strategy' page.[edit]

The system page is useless and never updated. I'd suggest we purge it and move the information to "Miscellaneous". Also re-hauling the Strategy page is perhaps an idea I was thinking. I mean, half of those terms and info is barely used in DotS. --Helepolis 19:51, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Looking at the "System" and "Miscellaneous" pages, I think the contents of both could be merged to the Gameplay page. "Miscellaneous" pages are generally used for listing things such as bugs, trivia and unlocks. -Master Bigode 20:50, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
Actually im sure we could merge all 3 into general information page, not much strategy to this unless we want to tell people how to play. So probably we could just name off class types and there meanings and list the jump spots, and then just merge everything else. Also ai map we can remove, theres this dots map editor where it adds ai to any dots map. Ill look for those downloads later.Dr Rawr 23:00, 30 June 2011 (UTC)
A general information page is perhaps indeed a good name for it. It is not like the page is going to grow beyond crazy size (like the heroes). And for the strategy part, we shouldn't be writing essays on how you can apply strategy, but more like approach it from an objective point of view. Explain how creeps behave, how towers might behave, a small glossary for common terms etc.
We should definitely not write a strategy guides because those only bring drama. Our goal isn't to teach strategy, just to inform the people fast and accurate about the mechanism and stuff. The rest they can simply experience themselves. If we agree on this, I am willing to execute the changes by reshaping things. Later on we can fill in the parts. --Helepolis 13:47, 1 July 2011 (UTC)

Official chinese forum, what happened?[edit]

So what happened to the official chinese boards? Data loss? --Helepolis 23:13, 29 January 2011 (UTC)

I think it died again..? This happens once a fortnight or so, unless I can't keep track of time passing. Which is sort of the case <<" EDIT: It's alive again.. :3 --MikoDotter 02:48, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

In-game glitches..?[edit]

Not really related to 'developing' the wiki, but I'm thinking of what I (or we) should do if glitches are found while playing a game of DoTS. I have some screenshots, but I only learnt a bit of Chinese few years back, so attempting to post on the official forums isn't really an option.. don't like using Google Translate ;A; Don't think that creating a 'known glitches' page is great either, because we'll likely be missing quite a lot of known ones. --MikoDotter 02:44, 22 April 2011 (UTC)

most of us who edit the dots pages are on the motk forums(its one of the links) poke around there and you'll find the dots thread. and just post any glitches/bugs you find. I plan to add them into each character page but first i have to complete the tables and finish all the skill icons, then ill get onto skills specific like damage type or skills that work funny with items.

Is there an exact time and date this will be released? I've been waiting anxiously but "it will be released very soon" has been up for almost a week. User:Keldabe

Oh, very very sorry, I'm trying my best onto working it, everything else except skills from Moriya have been finished editing. Try to wait more patiently... You can check for the latest updates on doujinstyle.Lucky Charat 10:11, September 11, 2010 (UTC)

I'm going to assume that you must buy Warcraft 3, then download the map and then patch until you play, correct?

You also need to have Frozen Throne expansion pack, then patch the game to 1.24. --Helepolis 05:49, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
