Dota 2 Esports

Dota 2 has made a name for itself in the eSports world and has become one of the most popular titles in recent times. Even though the game is less than a decade old, Dota hit the ground running and became an instant favorite in the eSports community.

Dota 2 is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) video game with two teams - each consisting of five players - battling it out to destroy the enemy’s Ancient structure. The map is in a square structure filled with jungles, towers and 3 distinct lanes along with the Ancients at opposite diagonal corners.

The players must choose their player character (PC) from a pool of 121 heroes, each with different abilities based on strength, intelligence and agility. Once their hero is selected, players can earn gold by completing objectives such as killing an enemy or destroying the other team's towers. They can buy items to make their hero stronger before they eventually take over the map and win the game.
