We're excited to launch our latest project - the Concept Creator! This new feature will make concepts easier to create, visualize and share with the DOTA community!


The new system is simple to use, but also allows you to be as creative and in-depth as you like! Are you thinking about having 15 abilities for your hero? Go for it! Want to include talent options for your hero concept? Sounds good! Add chapters to the bottom of your concept to discuss lore, strategy, balance, or just leave it blank to keep it short and sweet.

Feedback is important for any concept creation community. Readers can post comments directly to your concept, with threaded discussion to keep everything organized. Voting is also an important feature, letting you see how your concepts rate compared to other concepts in the community. Be sure to vote on other user's concepts and let them know what you think!



Feel free to try it out for yourself, you can create a new concept at any time, or maybe even convert a concept you've already posted elsewhere.

If you're more of a reader than a creator, you can also browse hero concepts, though it might be a bit empty to start off with.

Make sure to let us know what you think about our new system and what we can do to make it better! Have fun and amaze us with your awesome concepts! :)

Not quite!

That forum will still be used for item ideas and pretty much anything that people can come up with. The hero creation system is just there to aid authors into making their concepts look as awesome as possible while offering them a way to create them easily. :D

This is pretty awesome! I like the fact that I it can drastically help me create new concepts without sacrificing my formatting freedom!

Some parts can be improved further :
  • Have an option to list the abilities by default Hotkeys. So instead of just 1,2,3,4,5,6 it can be Q,W,E,D,F,R.
  • There's a problem on how does one represent Invoker's invoked spells or Alryca's Library spells. As they should naturally be separated from primary and ultimate abilities. So maybe there should be merit in having Add New Ability Section.
  • A text section for the talents. There may be introduced a complicated talent (cue 'Cataclysm') that will require some explanation. It can be placed on the right or below the talent tree.
  • Summoned units section. Though it can be done by just adding another text section...
