"Rat Dota" is a term
used in the very popular MOBA
game called Dota 2. It means that one of the teams (Radiant or Dire) are pushing one or all three lanes
and damaging turrets and/or structures but not committing to team fights.Basically
referring to a rat. Chipping
and gnawing away at an object and then running away at the first sign of danger.
Prophet TP's into a pushed lane when
the enemy team is on the other
side of the map and deploys his treants. Someone else on his team uses Boots of Travel and teleports
treants. They both
push that lane and do a large amount of damage to enemy structures very quickly. The enemy teams teleports
back to stop the push, by the time they
get there the damage has been done and the two pushing are long gone
and doing the same
to another lane.
Rat Dota at its finest, and very annoying.
