DotA: Masama O Mabuti?

[Editted]


Crystal Maiden, Skeleton King, Doom Bringer at Gorgon, ilan lang yan sa mga pinakasikat na karakter ng isang sikat na larong tinatawag na DotA. Madami ang nahuhumaling sa computer game na ito dahil ito ay isang larong sumusukat sa kakayahan ng naglalaro nito at ipag-tagisan ito sa kapwa manlalaro.

Ang larong DotA (Defense of the Ancient) ay isang custom map sa larong Warcraft 3. Ang katotohanan sa likod ng DotA ay hindi maganda. It ay isang satanic game. Sa pangalan pa lang ng mga karakter at tema ng laro, mahahalata na ang larong ito ay inspirado ng mythology, killing, bragging, devil at kung ano ano pang masamang elemento. Ito din ay nageengganyo sa mga manlalaro sa tema nito na patayan: masmaraming mapapatay, masmaraming pera at maging BEYOND GODLIKE (higit pa sa Diyos). Ang litrato sa kaliwa ay isang kuha mula sa larong ito. Dito ay ipinapakita ang deskripsiyon ng karakter na si Lucifer (Si Satanas mismo) na kilala din sa pangalang Doom Bringer.

Ang laro ay simple lang naman: depensahan ninyo ang sarili ninyong teritoryo at sakupin ang kabilang teritoryo. Dalawang koponan ang nahahati: ang Sentinel (good daw) at ang Scourge(ang mga kontrabida). Ang mga karakter ay halong tao at mga halimaw na nakikipaglaban sa isa't isa. Kailangan patayin mo ang karakter ng kalaban mo kundi ikaw ang papatayin at kapag napatay mo siya ay meron kang bonus money na pwede mong ipambili ng mga pampalakas ng karakter mo para mas lumakas pa.

Ano ang pakay nito? Ang #1 pakay nito ay purihin si satanas at hindi ang ating Panginoon. Ito ay isang malaking desepsyon kung saan ang naglalaro ay ineenjoy ang laro nang hindi niya alam na it pala ay isang pandaraya ni satanas.

Sa unang tingin pa lamang ay hindi na nakakalugod sa ating Panginoon ang larong ito. Ang sabi nga ng bibliya: "I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me" -Psalm 101:3 (pasensya na sa Ingles na bersyon).

Ito ay ilan lamang sa mga CHEATS o mga salitang pandaya sa larong ito:

WHOSYOURDADDY (Who's your daddy?/sino ang iyong ama?) - Ito ay ginagamit upang magkaron ng ganap na kontrol sa laro. Ito din ay tumutukoy na inaamin mo na ang ama mo ay si satanas na nagbigay sa'yo ng ganap na kontrol sa laro.

GREEDISGOOD (Greed is good/mabuti ang kasakiman) - Ito ay para magkaron ka ng masmaraming pera. Malinaw na din sa sariling salita kung bakit ito masama.

ISEEDEADPEOPLE (I see dead people/Nakakakita ako ng mga patay na tao) - Ito ay para makita ang buong mapa ng laro (kadalasan ng mga laro ay may mapa para makita ang lokasyon ng kung ano-anong bagay, karakter at kalaban). Ang ibig sabihin din nito sa literal ay kapag nakita mo na ang buong mapa, dinedeklara mo nang patay ang iyong kalaban dahil dinaya mo sa pamamagitan ng cheat na ito dahil mapagpaplanuhan mo na kung saang parte ka aatake.

Ito ay ilan sa mga pangalan ng mga karakter sa larong ito: Deathbringer, Skeleton King, Chaos Knight, Abaddon (ibig sabihin ay pagkawasak, isang pangalan ng demonyo na binanggit sa Bibliya), Leviathan (isang halimaw sa dagat na binanggit din sa bibliya), Necromancer (nakikipag-usap sa mga patay) at madami pang pangalang tumutukoy sa mga nilalang ng kadiliman.

Mejo mahirap ipaliwanag ang larong ito para sa mga hindi pa nakapaglaro nito. Binabalaan ko lang ang mga taong gustong subukan ang larong ito. Huwag kayong magpapadala sa pandaraya ng demonyo.


Hindi ko ipinagbabawal ang paglaro ng larong ito pero sa ngayon alam kong malinaw na para sa inyong mga mambabasa at kapwa kapatid sa Panginoon na ang larong ito ay devil inspired. Hindi makabubuti ang paglalaro nitong larong ito at alam ninyo iyon sa sarili ninyo. Sinasayang nito ang inyong panahon at pera. Ang kasiyahan sa larong ito ay panandalian lamang samantalang ang kaligayahan sa ating Panginoon ay hindi nakakasawa at magpakailanma'y hindi magbabago.

Sa madaliang salita: DotA = MASAMA. Hindi dapat ito nilalaro ng isang Kristyano, lalo na ang mga kabataan o kahit hindi din mga mananampalataya. Hindi lang ang larong DotA ang devil inspired. Madaming laro ngayon, lalo na sa mga kompyuter, ay devil inspired. Dapat nating piliin kung ano ang mga bagay na pumapasok sa ating mata at tenga.

indeed, dota is not a good habit, and all the statement above is true. this game is one of satan's game installed in this planet. Playing this kind of game is simply giving praise to satan's work.
"do not be deceive, don't play dota!"

tama tama..

What I don't like is when people get addicted to it. ANything much is already bad enough aside from so much of God!

Good post!

mrunong ba kau mag laro ng DOTA .. zz .. strategy game lang naman aa . ^^ .. wlang masama xD

Angel said...

reply to [anonymous]

that's how the devil works and deceives. siempre itatago nia ung mga plano nia sa mga bagay na akala natin ay OK. for the Lord, that game is evilish. think about this (considering WWJD: what would Jesus do?): God would not play dota because it's evil.

Kung mananalo ka sa dota, most players give the credits to the strength of their character (who were devilish and most are devil in form). i was once a dota player also so i know the game very well. will you give credits to the devil? it's just like you're worshipping his "image" (in the game).

But I can play Warcraft (normal game not DOTA) because there is no names of demons or even the beyong GL

Angel said...

Warcraft and the likes are pretty much the same...
Take a look at the cheats for warcraft, there's no excuse on playing warcraft. the name of the game itself describes violence...

wow! this post is really great. i hope the other people who are still addicted in playing this game could have time to read this, so that they would realize how wrong is it to play DotA. most espacially to the students because they are spending more time on playing DotA than to study for them to have a better future.

Angel said...

Yeah, it's just a waste of time and money also, which kills your studies and probably your future.

dun ba talaga ang basehan nyo.. Alam ko sa isip lang ng tao yun eh kung pano nya patakbuhin.. Ako nga nagdodota eh pero wala naman nangyari sakin masama.. maganda naman ang pakikitungo ko kasi ang isip ko laro lang yun.. Kung waste of time yun then so be it.. yung mga cheat dun if you take it seriously then isip nyo talaga masama yun pero kung sa laro lang kasi laro naman talaga naman yan eh di parang wala lang.. Ang bagay nagiging masama kung sumobra ka.. Ngayon kapagnaadik ka sa dota tapos you take it seriously yung tipong napapabayaan na lahat eh di masama na yun pero yung the way na naglalaro ka lang para malibang dahil naghihintay ka ng oras kunwari sa klase tapos wala ka naman gagawin eh walang masama dun... ang point ko dito walang masama sa dota as long as hindi sya sumobra kasi lahat ng bagay pagsumobra masama.. gets nyo na?

This article is very illogical.. Joke

David once prayed to the Lord this line: "set no evil things before my eyes"
Philippians 4:18 also says to focus our minds on whatever things are good.
Enjoying a game like this means enjoying the company of satan. This game is evil inspired: inspired by killing and evil.
It's up to you if you want to play.

"Ang #1 pakay nito ay purihin si satanas at hindi ang ating Panginoon."

Hi. I'm a Christian and I disagree with your assertions. Tingin mo ba talaga ang pakay ng laro ay purihin si Satanas? Come on! It's a game. Playing it won't make you worship Satan! Mag-ingat sa mga posts. Posts like this may repel unbelievers and hate Christianity. Isipin mabuti ang pinopost.

Do you think unbelievers would be attracted to Christianity upon reading this? I'm sure they would react negatively. And are you sure of what you're posting?

Again, magingat sa pinopost. :)

hmmmm...i think dota is neutral.. i play dota and the only thing about it that i find bad is being addicted to it..

i am a CHRISTian.. sometimes our youth play this game to have fellowship with each other.. it doesn't mean that if you use DOOM BRINGER "Lucifer", you are praising SATAN.. for me it is even worse to post hasty conclusions like what you posted..

isa pa, SATAN is in this world, but it doesn't mean living in this world is a sin.. loving the world is the sin.. playing dota is not a sin.. living as what dota suggests is the sin.

CHRISTianity is between you and GOD..

Angel said...

to the last two commenters:

first of all I want to pinpoint some points:
1.) Why are you playing DotA?
2.) Which is more enjoyig, the presence of God or in the presence of a violent game?
3.) Do you think it is really okay playing these games? It's not only DotA, most MMORPGs are like that. Killing, hacking...
4.) Are you controlling your will? Or is DotA playing on you?
5.) Christians are to abolish those kinds of materials which misdirect many people to where they should not be, but why do Christians compromise and promote to themselves these kinds of materials? It is written in the bible that we should think of those things that are good (philippians 4:8) and we should not set any wicked thing before our eyes.
6.) Satan is a deceiver, aren't you deceived? please reflect...
7.) It's not about the characters you play in the game, those characters are where you put your mind into. That means you put yourself in that character, You + the abilities of it.
8.) Are you sure you are not trashtalking? if not good, but it's still a sin to compromise.
9.) You want to be on top of your opponents and allies, making you have a crab mentality.
10.) If God is with you today, and you are to go out to play DotA, what would you think will happen???

Jesus Said: avoid evil things and set your eyes upon me. He is a jealous God. So if He is our God never ever waist your time to other things. Read His love letter to you (Bible)and expect His hand to move you in your life (blessings) rather than you move your hand to Dota that waisting your time. ONLY JESUS CAN GIVE YOU A BETTER... BETTER...BETTER future.

Angel said...

Play satan and satan will play you... (other characters are still evil inspired)

i agree with what angel said.
kung gagawa sila ng game, bakit kailangang pangalan pa ng mga demonyo yung gagamitin nila? o diba?

Playing DOTA was not really in my blood,.. infairness with our christians friends who are still playing this game remember that we are not battling against flesh but against the principalities and rulers of the air.. being in bondage to this kind of deception will take a fully surrendered heart to overcome this.. Praise God for this Blog it is an eye-opener.. this blog is not intended to condemn the player but to remind and through God's grace and unfailing love we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. let us make these as a stepping stone to become a better christian and leader.. Onward Christian Soldier!..

Angel said...

You're right edison. This is not to condemn those who play the game but to remind those who play that this game is a big deception. This game puts in us the spirit of addiction, violence and null words.

DOTA players may have the right (by freewill)to play whatever takes their fancy. But the thing is, satan uses even the slightest and seemingly innocent tools or avenues to trick us...of course, he blinds us, then binds us. Just like the way he blinds players so as not to see his deception and, the way he binds them w/ addiction. Satan will make players feel the superficial effect (fun only)and not the deep-seated ones (addiction, mind-manipulation). Mga kaibigan, satan doesn't fight fair. He uses the subconscious, then manipulates the conscious mind. Players don't recognize it...because they are blinded. They will still justify this activity because satan has a foothold already, worse, a stronghold on them. Our good Lord will continue unveiling the tactics of satan through this blog! More shall be delivered from this worldly game. To God be the glory!

I had recently watched a documentary from CBN Asia about a boy playing computer games in his laptop, particularly DotA. His mother bought him a laptop so that he would not go to internet cafes with his barkada. He was so addicted that he would not go to school anymore, and worst, he don't listen to her mother anymore, literally. Then he complained about a pain in his stomach, doctors could not help and it lasted for weeks. Then a pastor came and told them that a demon is possessing the boy. The pastor prayed for the boy and the demon never came back to the boy. The spirits of almost anything are contagious substances. It transfers from one to another. The spirit of DotA is clearly not from God, even other computer games, and it transfers, blinds and binds, as the previous person said, everyone who becomes addicted to it. Please have discretion in everything we put before our eyes and ears.
