About Dota 2
Dota 2 is a free-to-play multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) video game developed and published by Valve. Dota 2 is played in matches between two teams that consist of five players, with both teams occupying their own separate base on the map. Each of the ten players independently control a powerful character, known as a “hero”, that each feature unique abilities and different styles of play. During a match, a player and their team collects experience points and items for their heroes in order to fight through the opposing team’s defenses. A team wins by being the first to destroy a large structure located in the opposing team’s base, called the “Ancient”.
