  • Doka 2. [labelnote:Explanation]]A Russian-only meme that originated after the school shooting in Crimea. While discussing the incident on television, one of the TV hosts cited Dota 2 as a potential culprit for the shooting; however, not only did he heavily exaggerate the violence in the game, but he also mispronounced the name of the game, hence the meme. The host's angry tweets later produced a few smaller memes.
