Dota 2

Dota 2 is perhaps one of the most interesting and popular multiplayer games in esports. It’s also one of the highest-paid competitive disciplines in the esports industry. The prize pools of the major annual championships reach tens of millions of dollars. Since its inception, the game was already doomed to become a separate kind of esports, as it had a huge competitive potential. Of course, Dota is played not only by professional esports players but also by ordinary amateur players. However, many of them dream of building their career in esports and becoming famous.

Features of Dota 2

Now, we’ll say a few words about Dota 2. The game originated from a mod created by fans of Warcraft 3. The modification was a separate map, designed in the MOBA genre, and was very popular among players. At that point, the developers from Valve decided that the amateur map should be released as a separate game product. Released in 2013, Dota 2 was received with great love by the gaming community. To this day, it has not lost its appeal and relevance for the players. On the contrary, interest in it is only increasing. The rules of the game are simple enough. Two teams of 5 players each compete in a game arena resembling a map from Warcraft 3. Before the start of the match, players choose their heroes, which they will control. Each hero is unique and has special skills and abilities. The goal of the game is to destroy the main building at the enemy’s base. The gameplay is carefully thought out and includes a system of hero progression, economy, in-game items, and much more. The interaction of all team members with each other and their coordinated actions, united by a common strategy, is of the key importance in the game. Individual skills are also important, of course, but even the best Dota 2 players will not be able to win a match without teammate cooperation.

Simple and straightforward rules, intense matches, and gameplay combinations that can be mastered during the confrontation have made it one of the most famous esports disciplines of our time. Top esports tournaments always cause a stir in the esports community. Of course, it’s better to see everything with your own eyes, especially considering that the next Dota 2 tournaments are just around the corner.
