Defenders 053: Lion

March 21, 2012

Don’t forget to vote for the next hero to be printed at adamcbeamish.com/vote. Dazzle has a pretty healthy lead right now; will it stay that way until next week?

Boom.  Lion. Valve has done a great job with this model. I mean, they’ve done a great job with pretty much all the models, but I really like seeing the heroes personalities getting fleshed out through their redesigns. This new model much better personifies Lion the character. He’s seems way more evil now, and I mean, his original DOTA model had a shield. What’s up with that? I’m pretty sure Demon Witches don’t use shields…

Contrast that with someone like, I dunno, Crystal Maiden, who has basically stayed the same through the transition. They’ve expanded on her lore, and yeah she’s got more of an icy look now, but I feel she hasn’t really grown as a character all that much.

At any rate, for me, one of the coolest things about Dota 2 is just how much more detailed the world has gotten. Hero lore has changed, and in some cases been woven together to create a much more interesting and exciting in-game universe. I’m sure we’re going to see a lot more of this type of thing before the game is released.
