Introduction to Dota 2 online

 

Dota 2 is the sequel to the original “Defense of the Ancients” (DOTA for short) which in turn was a version of “Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos” which was a hugely popular multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) that was developed and released in 2003 by the company Valve Corporation. 

Dota 2 is an action pack and visually upgraded version of the original and has since it’s release in 2013 gained huge momentum and today Dota 2 has over 10.1 million monthly active users.

The game itself is played out in matches between two teams with 5 players each. Each player controls their own character known as “hero”. Every hero has a unique set of skills and abilities which you use to overcome your opponent’s heroes and ultimately, destroy the other team’s base or “Ancient”. When you destroy the Ancient you win the game.
