The monster system in Blizzard DOTA is totally different too. For example, after being knocked down, monsters in the wild won't die but will help kill foes or push towers as players' teammates. Such monsters include ogres that players can confront independently, troggs that need to be beaten down by 3 players at least, and some mighty bosses.

After being defeated and joining players, common monsters will emerge on the map as little points, while bosses will emerge on the mini map as big red skeletons.

Besides, Blizzard DOTA simplifies and adjusts its systems, in order for players to end each match more efficiently.

Blizzard DOTA's defensive towers are somewhat weaker than those in other DOTA-style games. Players' last hit on creep minions or enemy heroes won't gain extra Exp, but can only receive magic balls which can help recover HP and MP. "Hit and kill" will be replaced by "killed", this is, the system will distribute Exp to those involved in the killing evenly for fear of kill stealing.
