The following article was written for DailyEsports.gg. Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to continue this series. In preparation for this article, I did extensive research on the early Dota scene and analyzed how other games in the genre developed concurrently.
I even went to the extent of located & reaching out to several community figures from the early 2000s, who personally knew Pendragon & Icefrog back in the day. These interviews were some of my personal favorites and provided a rich contextual background regarding the history of MOBAs.
