Dota 2

What is Dota 2?

Dota 2 is a multiplayer online battle arena video game, and the stand-alone sequel to the Defense of the Ancients (DotA) mod. The game consists of session-based online multiplayer matches, in which two teams of five players attempt to destroy their opponents' fortified strongholds. Each player controls a "hero" character and, over the course of an individual game, focuses on improving their hero's abilities, acquiring items, and fighting against the other team. The basic setup of Dota 2 features two opposing factions, the Radiant and the Dire, which maintain strongholds containing critical structures called "Ancients" at opposite corners of a predominantly symmetrical map.
