11-year-old killed over Dota, 16-year-old suspect detained

11-year-old killed over Dota, 16-year-old suspect detained

| February 28, 2014


No matter how angry you are, it’s never right to get violent with other people over a game, let alone take a life.

However, that’s not what happened a few days ago in Malolos, Bulacan in the Philippines when a 16-year-old young man killed an 11-year-old boy.

A report by ABS-CBN News states that the police believe the cause to be related to the hacking of an “online Dota account”. The victim was last seen with the suspect around noon last Sunday, February 23. The suspect initially denied seeing the boy, but his heavily blood-stained shorts and drops of blood leading to his house are currently strong evidence against him.

If game hacking is indeed the cause of the murder, then the game in question could actually be Dota 2. Unlike items in MMORPGs, in-game items in Dota 2 don’t really give a player any advantage aside from looking good. However, some people make money out of selling the rarer items for real money. This is not the first time we’ve heard of game collectibles resulting in violence and murder, but no matter how much the value stolen or lost, it is still not enough reason to take another’s life.

The murder took place in a construction site behind the victim’s house, where he was found with 40 stab wounds on his body. A murder case has already been filed, and because the suspect is still a minor, he will be put under the custody of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).

We’ve attempted to contact the the Malolos police department for comment but thus far have been unable to reach them.

      FYI this game is an e sport so it is in entertaining buisness not only for the payer but also for the one watching it many people played this game competetively for the INTERNATIONAL winning price 1.000.000 dollars or more 2nd 750.000 and so on. it means its impossible to take down this game as a ton of people will lose their jobs for this and many people wasted their money on buying this so please if u havent played it or feel the competetive gaming dont post anything. another information. that game is played world wide not only asia and the noob groups in asia are freaking pinoys aka philipines so if u play this the pinoys here will cause trouble so these people who play from pino only ruined peoples reputations

  18. Tanong ko lang?
    -Ano ang natutunan mo sa DOTA kay sa mag-aral?
    -Bakit kailangan mo patayin ng isang bata dahil lang sa isang laro?
    -Mananalo ka na ba ng 1million kung ikaw ng MVP sa DOTA.
    -11 taong gulang na bata patayin ng 16 taong menor de edad ang bakla na naman!
    -Diba gaming is for fun not murder?
    -Diba mag-aral ka dapat kaysa laro ng laro sa DOTA?
    -Wala kang natutunan sa DOTA kundi PATAYAN LANG!
    -Diba dapat ka maging moral character sa isang bata dahil 5 taong kang mas-magulang?
    -Pintay mo ng 11 anyos na bata dahil talo ka? Special yung bata kasi skilled siya kaysa sa iyo!
    -Bakit ginawa mo yung FIRST BLOOD sa bata?

  30. Joshua Rolan You are right, Some if not all of those who knew this incident might be blaming DOTA, and to those guys specially Parents, FUCK OFF DotA is a Game alone, do not blame it over a Kids death, blame the addicted Bastard who can’t even handle himself. I fear that the Government might ban DotA/ DotA 2 here in Philippines, I Hope not.

    • axelq123

      dota 2 banned itself means that all the pro teams : navi alliance,dk,orange,roxkis,and other teams that plays competetive dota 2 as their jobs will have no more income so its a real recognisable job: gaming and its not as easy as u look for those who still dont understand its like soccer many people play it casually and some competetivly and earn money in soccer brazillians rule but in dota sadly they suck
