Immortal Treasure II



Immortal Treasure II is now available, and includes items for Windranger, Undying, Riki, Morphling, Lich, Earthshaker, Mirana, and Invoker. All Battle Pass owners can find their unlocked treasure ready to open in the Armory. This treasure features escalating odds—each one you open increases your chances to receive a bonus rare Mirana item, a very rare golden version of the Riki item, or an ultra rare Invoker Immortal bundle, each with their own independent escalating odds chance. Level up your Battle Pass to unlock more treasures. 25% of all level sales will go directly to The International 2016 prize pool. Head over to the Battle Pass website for a preview of the custom spell effects contained in the new Immortal Treasure.

As another bonus for Battle Pass owners, we have also added new in-game Battle Predictions, which will allow in-client spectators of the Regional Qualifiers to make predictions based on in-game events. Correctly guess the number of Roshan kills, the hero with the highest net worth, which team will destroy the first barracks, and much more—the available predictions will differ each game. Make enough correct calls to earn up to three Achievements and their accompanying Battle Point rewards. Each correct prediction will be added to your overall tally and can be tracked in the Achievement tab until all three are completed.

For a chance at more Battle Points, click over to the Compendium section of your Battle Pass to predict which teams will win the four Regional Qualifiers and punch their tickets to Seattle. With the Open Qualifiers wrapping up on June 24, and the Regionals set to run June 25 - 28, make sure to get your predictions in before 7:00 p.m. PDT on June 24.

This update also includes added support for resizing the mouse cursor in the Options menu, a change to reduce hitching when watching replays, and some improvements to bot behavior. Additionally, the inaugural Battle Cup is almost here, and details on the beta tournament will be available soon.

Manila Champions, TI Qualifiers and 6.88 Gameplay Update



Congratulations to OG for their Manila Major Championship. They had an impressive run through the Upper Bracket, taking down Natus Vincere, MVP Phoenix and Newbee. Team Liquid defeated five different teams in the Lower Bracket as they climbed their way back up to face OG in the Grand Finals. OG secured the victory by defeating Team Liquid 3-1, earning them an impressive second Major Championship title.



With The Manila Major behind us, teams set their sights on The International taking place this August. The Open Qualifiers will be kicking off June 21st, with the Regional Qualifiers right afterwards on June 25th.

In preparation for The International, a balance focused patch will be released today. In the 6.88 update you will find various minor balance tweaks geared towards ironing out some rough edges as we head into ESL Frankfurt next weekend and The International Qualifiers the following week. Head over to the patch notes page to read up on the changes in the 6.88 gameplay update.

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.

As a beginner I cannot play this game without being qued and destroyed by +lv 15 players or even veterans who made a new account and play very OP heroes aganist newbies. This game requires too much humiliation before learning how to game, because its already an old game with and established player base of veterans. A very anti-new players game.

If you can ignore the community it's a really great MOBA. Practice before playing with actual people and learn the roles of each hero. Once you're use to the playstyle, still....ignore the community and people named Gerz.

After playing THOUSANDS of hours in League of Legends, i gave Dota 2 a try. I can already tell Dota 2 is far better than LoL, in every way.

Its a fun game, but it will tear your soul out if you aren't careful. Also a free but rather rage inducing Roseta Stone. Learn up to 6 languages today!

It is a fun team based tactical action game. It's mechanics is good and the art style although simple is enjoyable. Biggest down side which is not the developers fault but still effects the game is the ♥♥♥♥ poor sportmanship and toxic that comes from this gamming community. You will be reported by team mates for failing to save their charaters life in a fight, for being bad at the game and generally be made the scape goat of their failure. It is a good game, just a poor poor crowd.
