Introduction:
DOTA or Defense of the Ancients is a game that rose in the age of the modern

technology. It is a LAN game or Local Area Network Mode. DOTA started in early 2000’s in the program Warcraft; it was revised in around 2006 in the program Warcraft III and later on they launched an online based application of DOTA which can be played not only by the LAN Users but also the WWAN Users, it was named as DOTA 2.
DOTA has been a great impact to some group of people in the society. It affects the students, the creator of the game, the sponsors and LAN Owners, the National
Telecommunications Subscriber and Distributor, the Players and gamers and most of all are the developers. That entire group of people in the society that has/is concerned in DOTA has both the positive and negative affections.
One of the greatest factors on being affected in DOTA is addiction. DOTA Addiction is considered as one of the deadliest game in the world. One of the most targeted places in DOTA
Distribution is Asia, specifically in China, Korea, Philippines, Thailand, Burma, Vietnam and
Malaysia. The game datum had been distributed in these countries and later on became one of the most unwanted games by some local and spiritual organizations.
Addiction to DOTA changes life. Being addicted to this game changes the flow of your time management. Due to playing, eating is irrelevant; the satisfaction they get from playing is the same as the satisfaction they get from eating. As a result, the body’s immune systems are getting weaker and now expose the different viruses and diseases.
Playing this game also triggers the player to lose his/her temper and values. It simply because of the different languages used during the game or what we called “Trash talks”. Trash

talks such as fool languages can really lose their temper and values. As a result, both sides will fight against each other.
All in all, DOTA really affects the life style of the youth who are in to this game, although it has one good benefit, but it corrupts the mind and the way the youth think. It also weakened the body system, money and moral values were not given importance because of this game (Engineer Clarence).
The game DOTA has been so famous these days, too and we have many reasons for us, the authors to conduct a research about this topic.
The purpose of this research is to analyze and identify the factors and effects that the game DOTA contributed to the students specifically in their daily activities.

E. Review of Related Literature
Today millions of students has been playing DOTA games and become their habits it is so hard for them to avoid playing DOTA games. It is a big Physical and Psychological effects for them mostly to their studies. (Jayvee Aquino)
DOTA can make the students addict and are the main reason that their academic performances are greatly affected. These studies show concrete evidences why the game is very popular in our country and may be very harmful. The people are not only playing the game, but also they are helping the developers to improve the game.
The research paper actually shows how DOTA influenced the Filipino people not only the gamers but also the people who do not play it. As you can see in the arguments presented, we can conclude that the culture of DOTA in the Philippines is rich, because it affects our daily lives and serves as a connection between the gamers. In the first place, there are no other games which have the same game play of DOTA; its origin, Star craft, have never been popular here in the country. People continue to embrace its influence and apply it to our everyday lives. It covers vast array of topics, which every people should know such as its origin and its concept. Every people should also know how gamers behave when they are playing informally and formally.
People should also know that there is no gender exclusivity in playing DOTA. People should also knowhow DOTA invades the country, and its effects to us. If every people know all of these, he can establish a clear understanding regarding the topic. He can clear things out, and know people’s opinions about it. He can also help other curious people of what is the game all about. The main purpose of this paper is to inform and remove negative thoughts about DOTA to

Page | 11

The reader. Everyone must not be alarmed, but rather be informed. Since the game was released, everything followed like a domino: the rise of the computer shops and its culture, the popularity of the game, the hosting of several DOTA competitions, and its total invasion in the country.
Jack Rodriguez wrote an article about balancing studies and playing DOTA. He presents 8ways to control time between studying and playing. “Pay attention at school; play moderately; pay attention to your game; observe the factors that can affect your studies; know when not to play; don’t mind the insults; cutting class is a drug; know when to quit”. These eight simple ideas can greatly help a student in organizing his time. Parents can also guide their children if they will be informed about playing DOTA. The trend of gamers in provinces is that the more they are expert in playing the game, the more they flunk at school. But in the cities it does not mean that you flunk at school it you are expert in playing DOTA. As you can see in the survey, some people
Time is also very essential when it comes to work. I’ll recommend that employees must not play while at work; because 1 game is not enough to satisfy him. Just play at your vacant time while you are not at work. Aside from playing DOTA, there are more worthwhile tasks that you can do like playing sports, helping in household chores, helping the community and serve the people.
Every person in a relationship must also understand what consequences will happen if one of them is playing DOTA. As said earlier, time is very important in a relationship, and one must reduce the time in playing the game. Also keep in mind that DOTA cannot be compared to your partner; it is only a game while your partner must be treasured of. Their partners must not be replaced by a game.
“Just like any sport, DOTA should not be treated as apriority. Play it for fun and play moderately.” Page | 12

-Rodriguez, Jack. 2011The game promotes many advantages to many individuals that can boost their self-esteem and social skills. But also, we must not forget the risks that can brought bad effects to the gamer. Everything has its own advantages and disadvantages. It’s up to you if you will adapt to its dynamic effects brought to the country. It’s up to you if you will embrace it or not. It’s up to you if you will use it for good or for bad things. At the end of the day, you yourself should decide whether you will explore the game or not. What’s very important thing is setting priorities in everything you do: in studies, time management, relationships and at work. We must be conscious of our time, because we cannot go back to correct our mistakes anymore. Also,
DOTA is only a game. So what’s the point if you are expert or not? The point here is, the culture of DOTA is generally not harmful; rather it serves as a significant challenge to the youth, to filter responsible persons and make a twist to the individual’s journey to success.
Even though the General Aggression Model suggests that personality and situational variables can influence aggression, it is not clear if the model can be applied to Eastern cultures.
The present study examined the mediating role of low self-control in the relationships between violent online gaming, Internet addiction, and aggression. We conducted a cross-sectional study using online self-report questionnaires to assess violent online game exposure, Internet addiction, low self-control, and aggression in 211 Chinese male students. We found that the majority of the 10 most popular games reported by the participants were violent. There were positive correlations between violent online game exposure, Internet addiction, low self-control, and aggression. Aggression was not only directly predicted by violent online game exposure and
Internet addiction, but also mediated by low self-control. These findings support the development of educational programs and measures to cultivate self-control in college students and reduce aggression engendered by playing violent online games. Aggression and self-control,

Page | 13

which is conducive to educational interventions, are related. The implications and limitations of this study are discussed. With the growth of the Internet, more people have access to online games. Online gaming is a popular form of entertainment that influences the quality of life of players (Shen & Williams, 2011). A specific type of gaming that involves violent online game exposure (VOGE) is of considerable concern to researchers, regulators, and the public. A particular concern is that playing online violent games can influence aggression in both the short and long term (Anderson & Bushman, 2002) by influencing cognitive and emotional beliefs
(Anderson et al., 2010).
According to the General Aggression Model, people exposed to highly violent video games are more likely to exhibit aggressive cognitions and beliefs (Anderson & Bushman,
2002). Aggression is defined as any behavior directed toward another individual carried out with the proximate intent to cause harm (Anderson & Bushman, 2002). Aggression is affected by personality variables (e.g., self-control) and situational variables (e.g., media exposure to violence). People with personality traits such as neuroticism, depression, and low self-control are believed to be more susceptible to developing aggressive behavior (Jones, Miller, & Lynam,
2009; Teng & Liu, 2013; Verona, Patrick, & Lang, 2002).
Another concern is that long periods of online game playing may lead to online game addiction (or Internet Gaming Disorder, according to the DSM- IV). Online game addiction has a negative correlation with self-control and a positive correlation with aggression (Kim,
Namkoong, Ku, & Kim, 2008).
Self-control is a personality variable often negatively linked to online game addiction and
VOGE, presumably because it results in playing online violent games for long periods, which, in

Page | 14

turn, could have a further detrimental effect on self-control (Frostling-Henningsson, 2009; Kim et al., 2008).
Low self-control (i.e., not monitoring behaviors and impulses) may result in aggressive actions, anger, and general aggressive tendencies (Mehroof & Griffiths, 2010); such aggressive and violent behaviors can be restrained by self-control (Chen, Liu, www.ccsenet.org/ijps
International Journal of Psychological Studies Vol. 6, No. 2; 2014 90 Lei, & Cui, 2012; Denson,
Capper, Oaten, Friese, & Schofield, 2011; DeWall, Deckman, Gailliot, & Bushman, 2011).
Increasing self-control could reduce aggression (Hamama & Ronen-Shenhav, 2012).
Moreover, low self-control as a mediator between situational variables and aggression is supported by a wealth of research (DeWall et al., 2011; Li, Li, & Newman, 2013; Runions, 2013;
Winstok, 2009). Low self-control could also play a mediating role in predicting aggression and violence (DeWall et al., 2011; Ozdemir, Vazsonyi, & Cok, 2013; Qu & Zou, 2009) as it has been shown to play a mediating role in situational variables (e.g., parenting processes) that predict aggression (Ozdemir et al., 2013).
Other studies have demonstrated the mediating effect of parental behavior on aggression
(Kim et al., 2008; Ronen, Abuelaish, Rosenbaum, Agbaria, & Hamama, 2012). The findings cited above support self-control theory (Gottfredson & Hirschi, 1990; Grasmick, Tittle, Bursik,
& Arneklev, 1993); low self-control may be a key predictor of deviant behaviors and is hypothesized to be the main cause of long-term online gaming or Internet addiction. Students with Internet addiction are generally less able to alter their environments because of the side effects of addiction (Ng & Wiemer-Hastings, 2005), and a lack of self-control prevents them from monitoring their online behaviors (Gottfredson & Hirschi, 1990).

Page | 15

Violent online gaming has been associated with an increased risk of Internet addiction disorder and aggression (Grusser, Thalemann, & Griffiths, 2007; Kim et al., 2008; Ng, &
Wiemer-Hastings, 2005).
Previous studies found that aggression was positively correlated with low self-control
(Grusser et al., 2007; Mehroof & Griffiths, 2010; Kim et al., 2008; Ko, Yen, Liu, Huang, & Yen,
2009). Montag et al. (2011) found bidirectional predictive variables aligned with low selfdirectedness and Internet addiction. Their data suggest a continuum model, in which low selfdirectedness is highly correlated with Internet addiction for first-person-shooter video gamers and college students. The interrelationships between Internet use, self-control, and aggression can be explained in light of the work of Young (1998), who postulated that Internet addiction is an impulse control disorder (as defined by DSM-IV criteria). Specifically, using the Internet for long periods and spending an excessive amount of time playing online games could lead to impaired self-control characteristics, such as those in impulse control disorders. Impulsive individuals have difficulty constraining their attempts to satisfy their desires, and, as a result, they are more likely to become aggressive. In summary, the literature suggests that online violent gaming may increase the risk of aggression by increasing angry feelings and hostile thoughts through the combination of situational and personality variables (Anderson & Bushman, 2002).
Despite extensive research on the psychological effects of online gaming in Western cultures, little research has been carried out with Chinese participants, even though a recent
Chinese video game marketing report showed that 95% of online games in China contain violent, aggressive, and provocative content (Yan, 2013). A preliminary study in China suggested that online game dependency predicted various problems, such as physical, personal life, and academic problems. These problems were usually associated with poor human performance.

The game DOTA is mentioned as a game of total addiction and death for its record as the most deadly game in many parts of the world and no matter what the majorities of the respondent’s answers the TRUTH shall always be both the answer and the key for understanding. The game DOTA affects your performance in school because it makes you tired from playing or talks about your winnings and losses during the class discussions and the reason why you can’t listen to your teacher well. Even in the extracurricular activities or not, you intend to cut your class schedule just because you want to play DOTA outside the campus and some are not yet contented they even play during night.
The game DOTA has never been beneficial to anyone. It only makes the young students and players’ addict. It never helps in one’s growth and profanity advancement.
In playing the game DOTA you may either have something to earn or something to lose but never have something to learn – in positive way. In playing DOTA, the only lessons you can take is to mention trash talks and when you became used to it, you are just going to say it anywhere without thinking that it is not right to do such things.
The DOTA distributor is the one to be blamed on these things that happens in our community just in playing DOTA especially Addiction Cases and Illness Cases caused by it.
In playing the game, as mentioned in the earlier paragraphs, the game can change the attitude of the people that are playing this game and one of its examples are learning what so we called
“trash talks”, “demonic words”, selfishness, underestimation and discrimination.
The game is considered as a community problem because students are turning addict instead of being a good example to the community by being the leaders for the good changes and

organizations that stops addiction. When all the young people become addicts then the saying
“The Youth is the only hope of the future” are just nonsense word of the fake hope?
The developers of the game sure are beneficial to this because many company are signing a contract with them to sell it to people especially the new game DOTA 2 which is being addicted in some places in the world particularly in the Asia and the Pacific. They have earned billions of money already even from the very day the first DOTA had been launched.
True, DOTA has characters, defenders and heroes that are named from the demons particularly the seven princes of hell such as – Abaddon, Lucifer, Necromancer, Baratrum,
Balanar, Jah’ rahkal and Vol’ Jin but it never became a hindrance to people and is still continues to play besides the fact that it has some demonic sides.
In studies, the academic profanity of an average student playing the game is more or less
80% and might go lower and lower if being addicted to the game but the academic profanity of a student that balances the studies and the playing might me more or less 87% and might go higher or lower depending on what they interest the most.
The game DOTA has been like the Great War that happened to the world before that invaded most of the lands. DOTA is now one of the TOP 5 games that might go into banning because of its deadly sides especially when we talk about the youth’s safety. DOTA is a great game – yes I tell to you but yet in its greatness it is still preventable and stoppable.
The game either can be unrelated or related to your subjects and lessons in school but it is best to keep away from risks and just go with the one who hold a 101.99% assurance of success in life and that is focusing on your studies.
The game DOTA is not a game that only selected people can play. It can be played by anyone as long as they know the rules, the objectives, the usage and the functions.

Even though the distributors of the game becoming richer and richer. The player’s of the game are not like the distributors and the game may be good for earning some money especially in wages but it can never make the players rich – not to count those people who wages billions per game.
The game DOTA despite of the risks can sure make us happy while playing it. The game whether it is good or bad the people who looks for pleasure and happiness – in a positive thinking prefers to play the game than to stay at home alone and doing nothing.
The game DOTA indeed has no positive effects that can affect people. The game causes some students to turn into addicts, stop them from going to school because of addiction, getting sick because they are lacking the nutrients by skipping meals due to the game addiction and worse of it is dying due to the reasons mentioned above – especially when they don’t pay their wage amount. All in all the game is being addicted almost by all and it is up to the people to prevent it or to spread it but the best thing to do is follow you hearts’ content – but yet it is a
LOT better if people prevents it. As the critic says, “The game is intended for a term project only yet it is distributed and sold and now our era of worries has begun. Stopping it is not our problem but the problem is who is going to start?”

The one who benefitted much of this game is the developer and the owner of the Computer Shop with a game DOTA.

...Executive Memo To: TATA Motors Limited Senior Management From: MBS Group TATA Date: 29 September 2014 Re: Game Embedded Strategy Dear TATA Motors Senior Management, This memo accompanies the presentation given on 15 September 2014 which put forward a case for TATA’s senior management to adopt Game Embedded Strategy (GEMS). The objective is to address the key points of the game dimension for TATA and to offer a set of recommendations focusing on evolution of the game in the future. The game dimension discussed in the memo follows framework T/3, type, technology and time approach, which encompasses the game dimension for the Indian geographical region for low cost compact cars between 2009 to 2014. Background – What Market Should TATA Be In? TATA Motors entered the market of low cost compact cars by introducing the cheapest car in the world with the famous “Tata Nano” in April 2009 at $2,400. With Maruti Suziki India Ltd as the Dominant Incumbent and near rival holding a 49% majority market share of the passenger car market in India, Hyundai Motor India Ltd holding 21% market share, the continued threat of Nissan (1.2%) and Ford India as the Extant Incumbent player with 2.3% market share, TATA Motors played the game against its competitors as the first mover by launching the first ever car of this price range.

...Vertical View A Nano Car in Every Driveway? How to Succeed in the Ultra-Low-Cost Car Market Henry Ford’s historic promise in 1908 to “build a car for the great multitude” resulted in the production of more than 15 million Model Ts and created unprecedented mobility for consumers everywhere. Will India’s Tata Motors deliver on its equally bold promise to a new generation of consumers to bring the Nano to market for the “great multitude” at a price of $2,500? T o fulfill his promise “to build a car small enough for the individual to run and care for, [of ] the simplest designs that modern engineering can devise, [and] low in price,” Henry Ford exploited innovative product design, vendor relationships, manufacturing techniques and distribution methods. One hundred years later, entrants into the ultra-low-cost car (ULCC) market have the same agenda in their attempt to build a car with a price tag of $2,500 to $5,000, which is lower in comparable dollars than Henry Ford’s $850 Model T. Vertical View But this is not a history lesson that can be easily repeated. Today, all indicators point to an automotive industry in recession, requiring its leaders to balance the global economic crisis with future market demand. Industry consolidation and restructuring in global markets will accelerate, propelled by the lack of availability to capital and consumer financing, high fuel costs and low consumer confidence. Undoubtedly, a new and improved......

Taliwas sa paniwala ng ilan, ang SSS ay ahensiyang pag-aari lamang ng gobyerno. Marami ang nag-aakala, maging hanggang ngayon, na ang SSS ay semi-government lamang. Ibig sabihin, bahagi ay pag-aari ng ilang private companies sa Pilipinas, subalit nilinaw ni Mr Frank Uy na hindi totoo and mga sapantaha, dahil purong gobyerno daw po talaga ang may-ari ng SSS. In fact, si Frank Uy na empleyado ng SSS ay nagbabayad sa GSIS automatic, dahil empleyado siya ng gobyerno. Kung contractual ang isang empleyado ng gobyerno, doon pa lang umano pumapasok sa SSS.

...The Tata Corus merger has made Tata Steel the fifth largest steel manufacturer in the world. This is the biggest foreign takeover by an Indian company. Tata and Corus are both happy with the merger and Tata steel is likely to reap many benefits from this deal. The Tata Corus merger has earned Indian steel giant the status of the fifth largest steel manufacturer of the world. Described as the biggest foreign takeover by an Indian firm by BBC, the deal was values at an estimated $11 billion. The two parties had agreed at a value of 455 pence per share of Corus. Earlier in 1999, Corus was formed by a merger of Hoogovens, a Dutch group and British Steel. Tata steel, on the other hand has been India's leading steel manufacturer. Corus had held discussion with Indian, Russian and Brazilian firms for this merger. The ultimate deal with Tata was described as "the right partner at the right time at the right price and on the right terms" by Jim Leng the chairman of Corus. For the Tata chairman Ratan Tata it was a "defining moment. As a part of the deal Tata also contributed to the Corus pension fund. The Tata Corus merger is expected to provide an estimated $400 million worth of savings to Tata Steel in three years time. The estimated savings till March 2008 is 130 million dollars. A prime reason for such high volumes of savings is the availability of cost saving technology through this acquisition. According to Mr. B.
