Players can choose participate in practice matches versus bots, engage in friendly matches with friends, or form a clan and compete against other teams.

In Dota 2 players choose a hero to enter battle with. Once in game, players must work together to level up and defeat the enemy teams base by destroying it.

These minions drop gold which players can then use to purchase items in order to become stronger.

    so i hope you know after the fall of the first dota game the makers left and started riot and made league so realisticly dota 2 copied league of legends because they obtained the rights to the graphics engin

    • Dendi on June 14, 2016

      this is 100% wrong. Dota in wc3 had 3 devs, first dev went and made HoN, he then gave the mod to the guy that wnet on and made LoL, at this point in time the game was not as popular as it would end up beeing when the third guy came to power, namly ice frog. He is the one that made dota to the game it is today and later went on and made dota 2 with valve. if you dont know your facts dont talk.

  2. I dont like on February 13, 2016

    I hate it I don’t like the controls or the view you get and how you must press space for the camera to move with you.

    • Vito :) on May 29, 2016

      What, are you daft?

      – You can change controls
      – Use mousewheel or numpad to change view
      – You don’t need space for the camera to move with you, you move camera via arrow keys. You can also lock the camera without holding down a key.

      Seriously, have you even gone into the settings?

    As my name states: Rest in Peace every MOBA game! It was nice playing with you all, these games were great, but it is time for them to die. The good old balance is no longer here… The good ideas were turned into s**t and parodies of themselves. The three of the greatest MOBAS: DotA2, League of Legends, and SMITE are soon to die, and don’t say that the games are alive, they are dead. Only noobs or people who wasted so much money onto these games. It all started with one idea: “Aeon of Strife, a Starcraft 2 mod. After it came Defence of the Ancients, or DotA1 if you may call it, a Warcraft 3 mod. Then these three games began to develop.” After a few years of running, it is time to put these games to rest. They were the three kings of the MOBA market, but now the market is about to die. It will remain for some time, because the developers still want their games to live, but they no longer succeed in doing so. DotA2 Reborn is horrible now, it is unbalanced, and it no longer have that perfect meta of 2013 before the TI3. League of Legends’ developers are just trying to survive, because the game is no longer appealing. and SMITE, were always horrible, good idea, but it followed the Pay To Truly Play of the League, so not a lot of people wanted to get into the game. I have played all 3 games, for a good amount of time, but it is sad to realize that these games which started the new generation of MOBA games, the three kings, are soon will be dead. I am off to the DotA1 and Aeon of Strife! Just let these games to die, they are no longer worth your time!

    • ToniMerier on November 11, 2016

      at the day of your last one, MOBA will still be there!

    • adel on November 21, 2017

      i’m looking know on those three games, but i think they are just here and there is more players than ever.

    • Krizjuan on December 26, 2017

      Based on what (besides your own opinion…or you just read this somewhere).
      I wasn’t to know why you think they’re dead?

      They still have as much development and active players as ever.

      Youre an idiot.

  4. kubasang on September 14, 2015

    whoever says this game sucks are real life noobs. Had to admit, learning curve in this game is unfortunately very steep but once u get a grasp of the basics, well, you will be stuck on your monitor and wont play any other MOBA games ever!
    Graphics are wow, and most of all strategy is the key and community is somewhat amusing except russians (kappa)…

  5. WONTONS on September 7, 2015

    I honestly think dota 2 is better, and if you just did the tutorial of course you don’t know how the real dota 2 is like. And if you’re calling it for creepy people then you’re probably just bad at it.

  6. DOTA2 on July 4, 2015

    DOTA 2 is the best and always be the best!

  7. TVvirus on June 23, 2015

    I have to say that after playing LoL, Smite, and various other MOBAs out there that Dota 2 is easily the best I have played. I mean sure when I first tried it I didn’t like it because of the difficulty of the whole thing in general, but after I learned the ropes it became a much better experience overall.

  8. Worst Game Ever on June 12, 2015

    Dota is one of the worst MOBA’s ever made. Stop saying LoL copied them, LoL is more active and more popular then this trash game.

  9. Epsilion on May 17, 2015

    Dota2 will and always will be better than League of Legends.

    Well, for all those idiots out there who think LoL copied Dota2, if anything it’s the opposite.
    Dota was the ORIGINAL MOBA. And I should know because my brother was a BETA tester for Dota2.

    Now, what’s also good about Dota2? All heroes are free. Sure, you can buy skins but that isn’t necessary for gameplay and won’t give you any advantage over any players. Oh, did I mention it’s also free to play?

    Some people don’t play Dota2 because, honestly, it is more difficult that LoL. You can deny towers and creeps which adds a whole new level of gameplay to the genre of gaming we call a MOBA. So, all you noobs who think it’s too hard, every game is hard at the beginning.

    Tell me one reason League of Legends is better and please don’t make it a crappy one.

  10. CoolFranczesca on May 7, 2015

    I think )̲̅ζo)̲̅ζ is BETTER than DOTA 2

    • JFMHunter on June 6, 2015

      I strongly disagree.

      • DUDESTFU on September 4, 2015

        Can u shut the fck up stupid spammer dota fanboy

        • squidymcsquid on February 25, 2016

          This is the internet, where opinions will widely differ from your own, and opinions will be expressed regardless of whether you want them to or not. You must be new here. Welcome.

  11. MobaReviewer on January 8, 2015

    Dota 2 is the best moba in my opinion , if you compare this to another moba out there ,because dota has diverse meta to play.

  12. daWanted on November 12, 2014

    DOTA2 must fit on any list of top 5 F2p MMO…After you learning the basics you will never play another MOBA…
    haterz gonna hate

  13. LOLFANBOY on September 6, 2014

    LoL is better.

  14. Nedim on July 15, 2014

    This game takes much skills and graphics are amazing,unlike some other MOBA’s like LoL which has kid’s graphics and takes no skills.

  15. tobian serpent on May 6, 2014

    Having played Warcraft 3 dots from the start I transitioned into hon beta and then to dota 2 which I am still playing. I’ve also played a handful of hours of infinite crysis and LoL. For my money dota2 is the go with a huge community, constant tournaments and updates and a reasonably good ui to boot. They all have flaws but I believe dota 2 will have the longest reign in the Mona world.

  16. pavekkcz on May 4, 2014

    this is good game and fun 😀

  17. asd on April 1, 2014

    rly nice game

  18. Falcon333 on March 25, 2014

    Hey, if anyone is interested in a Dota 2 key for the beta I got 15 when I activated mine (cause Valve is like that), if anyone wants one I will email them my steam account.

    • Zearics on December 22, 2014

  19. empty on March 18, 2014

  20. Dee Dee on March 8, 2014

    I personally hate this game and I believe that idiots play this creepy game lol, I just played tutorial that’s all, I’ll recommend to play ‘smite’ or wait and try upcoming ‘Total War: Arena’.

    • JFMHunter on June 6, 2015

      maybe learn before review? (lol review)

  21. James on November 18, 2013

    I praised Dota 2 for the beautiful graphics with the Source engine. Although it can be confusing when it comes to managing your account, it remains its Zero-sum genre and offers wide range of customization (Store) . Well too bad, it is not recommended for low-end PCs as it requires heavy resources. I played it 3 times daily.

    Verdict: 8.5/10

  22. C000L on November 7, 2013

    Hi everyone I downlowd the game but it ask me for KEY .. can if you pls guys if any have key for that game send it to me and will be so happy ………..

    • DotaIsLove on January 14, 2015

      what a joker!

    • DotaIsLove on January 14, 2015

      league copy and pasted dotas graphics lmao

      • vgkirito on March 18, 2015

        so i hope you know after the fall of the first dota game the makers left and started riot and made league so realisticly dota 2 copied league of legends because they obtained the rights to the graphics engine

        • Annonymouse on March 25, 2015

          Dota 2 is a carbon copy of Dota 1 with updated graphics. League is copy of Dota 1 as well, although the names of the heroes creeps and map is all different likely to avoid a lawsuit from Blizzard. All of these games are actually a copy of an even older mod for starcraft 2, which I forget the name of.

          Neither game uses the same graphics engine, Dota 2 did not obtain rights to the League graphics engine, Dota 2 runs on Valve’s proprietary “Source” engine which was around long before Leauge of Legends existed.

          • N4Mi on June 14, 2016

            The mod was for sc, sc2 had not been released yet at this time.

        • N4Mi on June 14, 2016

          Wrong. one of the makers went of and made LoL, then Ice Frog took over and made dota to the game it is today and moved on and made dota 2 with valve. If you dont know your facts dont talk.

      • Mordekaiser on December 10, 2015

        League is so much better DOTA graphic as HORRIBLE

    • JFMHunter on June 6, 2015

      eh, still better than league

    • DOTABOY123 on July 31, 2015

      in a nutshell: dota requires mastery(micros and familiarity with heroes) , LOL requires money(for better champions)

      • Spencer on November 11, 2015

        That isn’t necessarily true. I see what you’re saying, but no. League requires skill with each champion.

  27. mustkill8 on May 13, 2013

    can someone please give me a dota 2 key or gift for me on steam my steam is jabbowakee

    • Mati2001 on May 18, 2013

      On the DotA2 site u can register for a free invite. I have played DotA2 and I have about 15 invites but it laggs a lot and cash shop is quite op because it gives u bonuses in game. League of Legends is a lot of better. You really should try LoL.

      • GAHAHA on May 18, 2013

        cash shop in dota 2? Did you typed wrongly? It should be LOL, try harder, you loltard.

        • extasist on October 10, 2013

          all CS in dota is cosmetics :DD

          • vG.Vulpes Kai on December 29, 2014

            Honestly, having played over 3000 hours on dota 2, i can say that most people here have hit the steep learners curve, hidden within the game. the tutorial is a piece of shit, that doesnt explain the idea behind the game at all. league of legends is a buy to win game, therefore if you dont want to spend money, dota 2 is better by default. also anything that you dont put time and effort in will not be fun for you. also on a side note dota 2 is much harder to play than lol, and getting killed will punish you more. its more for hardcore gamers so to speak, but im sure theres even more tricky games out there. GL HF all

          • Mordekaiser on December 10, 2015
