Dota 2 Navigation - The First Pro Dota 2 Guide

Dota 2 is an online game in which you play one of over 100 unique fantasy heroes. In Dota 2, you fight your friends and other people all over the world for victory! The game is incredibly simple in its concept, yet it provides an amazing level of depth. You can have fun casually or to invest more time, develop deeper understanding about the game and take your skills to a very high level.

A Multiplayer Online Battle Arena
Dota 2 is a player versus player game where you fight with and against other people instead of just enemies controlled by the computer (although playing versus bots is possible). It is a team game, where you have the amazing opportunity to play with up to four other players against other teams of five gamers. Dota is not only a video game, but also a social activity and a way to spend good times with your friends.

In order to play Dota 2 you need an internet connection. At all times people from all over the world are gathered to play with you. The matchmaking system makes connects you only to opponents who are close to your skill level. Hence most of the matches you play will be neither too easy nor impossible for you. It is also possible to play the game alone - versus bots in custom matches or in the tutorials.

Dota 2 is in its essence an arena-type battle between the two teams of 5. You will be fighting and killing your enemies until you are able to raise their main base to the ground. A “match” of Dota 2 doesn’t usually take more than 45 minutes. Nevertheless, the endless hero combinations, the variable ways in which you can develop each character and the different roles you could be playing in a match all give the game incredible replayability. You will easily be spending hours with your friends without getting bored, as every single game is unique.

The Origin of MOBA
MOBA is a subgenre of RTS, which could easily be seen in the way you control your hero and the user interface, typical for real time strategies. The first MOBAs were Aeon of Strife (AoS), which was a custom map for StarCraft, followed by the original Defense of the Ancients (DotA), a custom map for Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos & The Frozen Throne. The original DotA was the first MOBA to gain a major player base - it is claimed that it is historically the most popular non-supported game mod of all time. Dota 2, the direct successor of DotA, has preserved all the features and gameplay of the original game, while giving better graphics, better UI and making the game easier to pick-up.

A never-ending battle between the Radiant and the Dire
Two opposing factions, The Radiant and The Dire, wage a war against each other in the Dota 2 world. Five players can fights for each side and so a team of five from each faction battles the other. The basic outline of the Dota 2 map consists of two key structures called the “Ancients”. Each is located at an opposing end of the map, connected to the other by three paths. Powerful towers defend each faction and ”creep” units lead the onslaught against the enemy base. Together, players must defeat the opponent by destroying the enemy base, i.e. “Ancient”. A player can choose a side and select one of the 101 available heroes to fight for his faction. Heroes have unique skills and abilities that help players to lead their squad to victory. Strategy and team-work are essential for a glorious victory.
