I've never enjoyed Dota 2 as much as I probably could because its viewpoint is just something I can't relate to. I hate the clickyness and I dislike the fact that so much of the map is visible due to the top down view. In contrast, I love SMITE because it's third-person, uses WSAD controls and there feels a genuine ability to sneak and use line of sight effectively without relying on fog of war. In this Dota 2 mod, BMD Dota has turned the game into a 3rd person shooter. It's really impressive and instantly makes the game atmospheric and if it were a genuine match, more nervy. What I find interesting from some of the YouTube comments and Reddit is that people love this but hate SMITE. It makes no sense to me - maybe they just dislike Hi-Rez. Take a look at the video below.
