The Secret Shop Goes International



The online Dota 2 Secret Shop is open for business. Featuring merchandise launched at The International 2016, as well as a host of other original and community-created designs, the Valve Store powered by WeLoveFine is now taking orders for shipments of this year's Dota 2 collection to fans almost anywhere in the world.

To celebrate the shop launch and the release of our Anti-Mage and Windranger Dota 2 figurines produced in cooperation with Good Smile Company, we've also worked with Good Smile to create a manga-style comic featuring both heroes as their journeys intersect on the trail of the necromancer Balimar Oakrot.

About This Game

Dota is a competitive game of action and strategy, played both professionally and casually by millions of passionate fans worldwide. Players pick from a pool of over a hundred heroes, forming two teams of five players. Radiant heroes then battle their Dire counterparts to control a gorgeous fantasy landscape, waging campaigns of cunning, stealth, and outright warfare.

Irresistibly colorful on the surface, Dota is a game of infinite depth and complexity. Every hero has an array of skills and abilities that combine with the skills of their allies in unexpected ways, to ensure that no game is ever remotely alike. This is one of the reasons that the Dota phenomenon has continued to grow. Originating as a fan-made Warcraft 3 modification, Dota was an instant underground hit. After coming to Valve, the original community developers have bridged the gap to a more inclusive audience, so that the rest of the world can experience the same core gameplay, but with the level of polish that only Valve can provide.

Get a taste of the game that has enthralled millions.

Barbie Dollhouse is a fashion doll manufactured by the American toy-company Mattel, Inc. and launched in March 1959. American businesswoman Ruth Handler is credited with the creation of the doll using a German doll called Bild Lilli as her inspiration.

Barbie is the figurehead of a brand of Mattel dolls and accessories, including other family members and collectible dolls. Barbie has been an important part of the toy fashion doll market for over fifty years, and has been the subject of numerous controversies and lawsuits, often involving parody of the doll and her lifestyle.

Mattel has sold over a billion Barbie dolls, making it the company’s largest and most profitable line. However sales have declined sharply since 2014.[1] The doll transformed the toy business in affluent communities worldwide by becoming a vehicle for the sale of related merchandise (accessories, clothes, friends of Barbie, etc.). She had a significant impact on social values by conveying characteristics of female independence and, with her multitude of accessories, an idealized upscale life-style that can be shared with affluent friends.[2]

Games mutes new players. It's a team based game where you're not allowed to engage in teamwork. Worst ♥♥♥♥ing moba ever. Good thing you don't have to spend any money on it, because thats all it's worth.

Im gonna go detailed on this one , sorry for bad english

This is my opinion of Dota 2

Community :
When people supporting the team as a support hero.

~First 10 minutes~
*enemy dewards*
"WARD WARD WARD WARD WARD WARD WARD AGAIN"
*no response in 3 seconds"
"tang ina no support "

~When killing an enemy~
"OI KILL STEAL , I NEED MONEY DUH DO SOME SUPPORTING"

this one really get in my nerve
~When i take Bounty rune~
Carries : "GG im not gonna be fat"

When i try to be a nice carry

~When picking heroes~
*Me Picking riki*
"Hehe can someone support?"
*All pick agi's*

~First 2 minutes~
"Heyy lion can you buy ward?*
"Why me ? you think im a lion and i have to support ? *** ** ** * ** ** *"

~Mid game ~
"Wait i need farm"
"GANK PLS DONT FARM , YOU NOT PLAYING FARMVILLE"

~Late game ~
"YOU NOT FAT . stupid you had one job.Farming
"But i thought we're not playing farmv.."
"SHUT UP GG NOOB"

When i try playing mid

~When enemy first blood you~
"GG mid ill report"

~When you decide to farm a little more~
"GANK LA STUPID report this mid noob"

Zero respect for the newbies , keep calling them "noobs dont play uninstall dota " wont change a thing
Anyway. Toxic deadly not inspiring full of hate words Community.
Dont try this game if you cant control your self , there's plenty game in steam that with great community.

Game :
The game itself are great , you can choose one from 50+ heroes with different skill set and animation.
What make Dota 2 fun and addictive because the knowledge/hardskill about dota that you got from experiencing a lot of playing or someone taught you used to defending your Ancient ( Or your HQ) and destroying theirs.While doing this , you can(and must) collaborate with your other 4 teammates with different heroes and skill set to try make the best Offense/Defense.
Really really enjoyable if you play with your friends or family.

Well guess now , what if you got a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ toxic teammate ? don't bother ganking together, make one mistake may get you reported and mocked

Tips if you want enjoy Dota for a long time : Make sure you have friend/family playing it too.If you ever play a Single game and you met this stranger with fun attitude,forgiving yet teaching ,know ways of dota, commend them and don't scared to ask if they want to be your Steam friend.Because kind like them are extremly rare. Its like getting Mew in Pokemon

Gameplay
9/10

Dota 2 is probably the best MOBA game I've ever played. I had more fun in Dota 2 than I ever did with LOL but don't have as many personal friends who play it like I do with LOL.

I enjoy the customization and the free items with the added ability to trade items easily and even sell them which is really nice and some of the many things that made the game nicer than LOL which is a great MOBA but just not as good.

Great game. 5k+ Hours. Hard to learn. Impossible to truly master. So many possibilities and variables. Teamwork crucial. Time consuming (games can be 40-70 mins long). Watch is great too. Personally Am trying my best to play a lot less because of life responsibilities. Suggest watching rather than playing if you are time poor. Some players can be toxic (ie. Rude or angry). Suggest muting them for an enjoyable experience
