Defense of the Ancients (DotA) is a multiplayer online battle arena mod for the video game Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and its expansion, Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, based on the "Aeon of Strife" map for StarCraft. The objective of the scenario is for each team to destroy the opponents' Ancient, heavily guarded structures at opposing corners of the map. Players use powerful units known as heroes, and are assisted by allied heroes and AI-controlled fighters. As in role-playing games, players level up their heroes and use gold to buy equipment during the mission.

But that's exactly the story of these two Pinoy men who ended up becoming loving boyfriends to one another after being each others' nemesis in the game of DOTA.

“He met that boy in a pub game online and they were always throwing bad words at each other” according to some people who know this prominent personality.

He added that the “Badboy” attitude of his boyfriend when playing online games like DOTA makes him crazy. He met his boyfriend 1 year ago in a pub game and they started as friends and that they were always teasing and throwing bad words at each other.

They then added each other on Facebook and it then developed into something more

"I first met him when he trash talked me in our [DOTA] game and because of that bad boy attitude, I tried to add him to my friends [on] Facebook then poof! Then, na-develop na," shared one of the guys who proudly posted their first photo as a couple on his Facebook Timeline.

Four months after, he felt some weird feelings for his friend because of the sweetness that his friend showed to him and that shocked him. And after several months of bromance, they decided to admit their feelings to each other and to try if a same gender relationship will work.

Many girls were disappointed because one of them was a top local player in his city

According to our source, many people were shocked and disappointed because, this man was known as one of the Top Players in Batangas City and many girls admired him.

Pinoy Trending tried to dig deeper into this story and found out that this public disclose shocked many people as the guy who posted the photo on Facebook was known as one of the top DOTA players in Batangas City and many girls admired him.

Although there are many stories where relationships are formed through online games, many are shocked that the relationship developed through trash talking

This kind of bizarre relationship shocked many people and no one expected that someone will fall in love with another person because of that. We hope that their relationship will last long, best wishes to the newest couple created by an online game.

I have a handful of friends who met the love of their lives online - that is, via mIRC, Friendster, Facebook, and some defunct dating website but never quite because of an online video game, more so because of trash talking while playing it.
