The Dota 2 Steam store listing has been flooded with negative reviews following the reveal of the Half-Life 2: Episode 3 story plot. The plot was published by former Half-life 2 scriptwriter Marc Laidlaw.
The text was published on Laidlaw's personal website yesterday. The text is a modified version of a part of the original Half-Life 2: Episode 3 plot. Important names, genders, races and events have been slightly altered, likely to avoid legal issues.
The Steam store listing of Dota 2 was flooded with negative reviews because fans of the Half-Life franchise feel that Valve has neglected the franchise by focusing on other products and titles, such as Dota 2 and the recently announced Dota card game Artifact.
The last Half-Life 2 episode, Half-Life 2: Episode 2, was released almost ten years ago on October 10th, 2007. Valve has not released new Half-Life content since then.
