Storyline

When the world was still cooling, a crystalline satellite entered the planet's orbit and became a permanent feature. Existing through the early stages of civilization, this object was actually the virtual prison for the raw energies of the Radiant and Dire, vying for control within the confines of the "Mad Moon". Eventually, their struggle became so extreme that the moon was blasted apart, with shards falling all across the world. The energies of the Radiant and Dire attracted creatures of different alignments and unified under these factions, the battles of Dota would commence. Written by Samuel Horton

My experience when I started playing Dota 2.
2 February 2015 | by mjess96See all my reviews

Dota is a competitive game of action and strategy, played both professionally and casually incompetently by millions of enslaved passionate fans Russians worldwide. Players pick from a pool of over a hundred heroes carries, forming two teams of five players five feeders. Radiant heroes then battle their Dire counterparts to control a gorgeous fantasy landscape, waging campaigns of cunning, stealth, and outright warfare raging in an unknown language and team fighting with one RAMPAGE victor.

Irresistibly colourful on the surface addictive, Dota is a game of infinite depth and complexity which requires, no, in fact takes an infinite amount of your life away. 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 that allow players to screw with their allies and get their teams killed. This is one of the reasons that the Dota phenomenon has continued to grow Dota will have more rage quitting and all chat abuse than any other game. 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 Russia, so that the rest of the world can experience the same core game-play, but with the level of polish that only Valve can provide learn from these ingenious people and become inspired to spread their knowledge with the rest of the world.

Get a taste of the game that has enthralled millions will happily teach you fluent Russian all for the sweet price of $0.

NOTE: Original description by Valve, edited by myself.
