During the making of the game it was a part of a custom map called Blizzard DOTA in StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty that showcase mods at BlizzCon 2010. Blizzard Entertainment Vice President Rob Pardo felt that Valve was using that Trademark name DOTA that was originated from the Warcraft Community.
