You are a loyal follower of Dota 2 and want to enter with a Nick out of series and do not know where to start, since there are endless nicknames and names that could go very well with what you want to represent and that are already used.
In fact there are some that are somewhat original that can serve as a starting point to create new names that have not been used and if you want to go further combinations of names in Spanish with other languages result in quite innovative nicknames.
By paying attention to the characteristics of the heroes such as: physical appearance, size, popularity and other details you will get to have your favorites, which is very likely to lead to the creation of original and attractive nicknames that also serve as a reference for other new players.
Being the kind of game it is, having a bunch of community-made nicknames in Dota 2 was inevitable. Beyond simply shortening names for ease of use (eg. Wraith King becomes WK, Abbadon becomes Abba), we have: Items The Animal Courier is referred to as a \"chicken\" due to its character model from the original Dota. For the same reason, the Flying Courier is referred to as a \"crow\". Acknowledged by Valve with \"Cluckles the Brave\" courier. A few other items are referred to by their original names by players and casters who have been in the scene for a long time. Lothar's Edge (Shadow Blade), Sobi Mask (Sage's Mask), and Mask of Death (Morbid Mask) are the most common ones. While less common, you'll still come across the occasional player that still refers to Desolator as \"Stygian\" (from Stygian Desolator), Drum of Endurance as \"Janggo\" (from Ancient Janggo of Endurance), and Daedalus as \"Buriza\" (from Buriza-do Kyanon). Although more prevalent in the original Defense of the Ancients, the Iron Branch is sometimes referred to as the \"GG Branch\" due to its original description: \"Wearing one of these ensures a Good Game.\" The item Rod of Atos is sometimes called the \"Rod of Aui,\" after competitive player Aui_2000, one of the few pro players who advocates its utility. The Scythe of Vyse has always been referred to as \"The Sheepstick\" by players and even some heroes (because it turns a target into sheep), even though in DOTA 2, it turns heroes to pigs. In fact, Heroes of Newerth has an Expy called the Kuldra's Sheepstick. Meteor Hammer gets the semi-affectionate name \"Meme Hammer\" for being considered an Awesome, but Impractical gimmick item on launch. Even after it was buffed to become viable, the name stuck.
Others The Hellbear neutral camp is referred to as \"Tomato and Potato,\" due to their colors (yellow and red). It even ties in with the term \"farming.\" The big red Hellbear Smasher also gets the moniker \"Killer Tomato\". Their original names (Ursa Warrior and Ursa Champion) were poorly used, and 'Hellbear' originally arose as a nickname before becoming Ascended Fanon. ChrisC, a developer at Valve, is frequently nicknamed \"Bot Guy\", as he's often the only one who works on the AI hero bots. The Satyr Tormentor neutral creep's Shockwave spell, which it fires off as soon as enough heroes are in the area, is refered to as a \"Hadouken\". Sometimes, players refers to heroes redundantly. Such as Kotl of the Light, Potm of the Moon (Mirana), Qop of Pain, etc. In a similar vein, we have \"Dota of the Ancients\" for the game itself. Hispanic speakers have several nicknames that play with \"DOTA\", because \"-dota\" happens to be one of the many augmentative suffixes of the Spanish language. The act of playing DOTA until sunrise is known in Spanish as \"amaneciDOTA\", which literally means \"big all nighter\". Detractors or salty players might call the game \"mierDOTA\", which means \"huge crap\". The collective effort of the teams to control vision and warding is often called the 'vision game'. The Ancients of both teams are referred to as \"Thrones\", due to the Frozen Throne being used as the Scourge (Dire) Ancient in the original mod. A \"dieback\" is when someone dies, uses their buyback, and then dies again immediately afterward; not only does this expend a lot of gold for little reward, but also puts them out of the fight even longer. The two main playing styles have their own nicknames: focusing on team fights above objectives is called \"Deathballing\" or \"Caveman Doto\", while taking objectives then high-tailing it to whittle down opponents is called \"Rat Doto\". \"'HO HO HA HA' era\": Patch 6.83 era where the game was considered entering an Audience-Alienating Era due to the rubberband mechanic and the reigning hero to benefit the patch was Sniper (and Troll Warlord). And so player would hear his Signature Annoying Laugh many times when he spammed his Shrapnel a lot to defend the high ground (the most viable strategy back then) and thus leading to a repetition of \"HO HO! HA HA!\" en masse, thus the patch is referred after that laughter.
Dota players in general have more creative nicknames than CSGO players, a lot of whom use their own names or initials. You guys have pretty interesting handles. What is the story behind each of your nicknames 59ce067264
