let me say from start, I stopped played dota on eubnet when it was at version 1.3x (somewhere then)
so yes it was loooong time ago

and back then only 1 Warcraft(FT) was needed, and only 1 version of "latest" dota was needed
but now on download page for eubnet, you offer 3 dota versions, and 2 Warcrafts ...

can someone have patience to explain why, and which one i need ? :/

Warcraft 1.28 is the regular version, the latest for us.

Warcraft 1.26 is for playing the new DotA maps as they abuse 1 game vulnerability to add more functionality (its fixed in 1.28 and above)\

DotA v6.85k Allstars can be played on both versions and we used it on our lagabuse.com league. Now the newer version is used (DotA Allstars 6.88x3) which is being updated and works only on 1.26. Usually, you get the newest version supplied by our client automatically, but if there is a problem or error, its also provided for manual download. The lagabuse.com bot is now used for custom games only (work on both 1.28 and 1.26 but if the players have different versions it can cause a desync on some maps. DotA is played using la-dota bot

Basically, you only need to download 1 of these versions, depending on what you want to play (or both) and the client. Here is guide how to host: http://dota.eurobattle.net/la/forum/index.php?topic=40.0

yes i dled last night everything, but, if i wish to play "classic" dota (not this dota2 featured edit)
then I can have only 1.28 warcraft installed right ?
(and do people even still play classic dota ?) :(

I think other leagues were hosting 6.83d on 1.28

Yes, that is the latest they were using on Northrend at least.

@Dixie, yes, many people still play classic DotA, version 6.85k is the classic one, 6.88v3 or whatever "v" is now, is just the "upgrade package" which makes other people happy.
