What is Dota 2 (http://www.wikipedia.org)?
Dota 2 is a 2013 multiplayer online battle arena video game and the stand-alone sequel to the Defense of the Ancients (DotA) mod. In most regions, the game is available exclusively through Valve's content-delivery platform, Steam.
Each match of Dota 2 is independent and involves two five-player teams, each of which occupies a stronghold at a corner of the map. Located in each stronghold is a building called the "Ancient"; to win, a team must destroy the enemy's Ancient. Each player controls a "Hero" character and focuses on leveling up, collecting gold, acquiring items and fighting against the other team to achieve victory.
Development of Dota 2 began in 2009, when DotA developer IceFrog was hired as lead designer. Dota 2 was praised by video game critics, who lauded it for its rewarding gameplay, enhanced production quality and faithfulness to its predecessor. Dota 2 has become the most actively played game on Steam, with highest daily peaks at over 700,000 concurrent players.
A standard match of Dota 2 features the strongholds of two opposing factions, the Radiant and the Dire, containing critical structures called "Ancients", which are surrounded by a number of lesser buildings. The bases of these two factions are connected by three main paths, referred to as "lanes", which are guarded by defensive towers, as well as autonomous units called "creeps", which periodically spawn in groups and traverse the lanes, attacking enemy units or structures they encounter. The Radiant is based at the southwest corner of the map, while the Dire is based at the northeast corner; the two sides are divided by a river that runs perpendicular to the central lane. The two teams, typically composed of five players each, are pitted against one another to compete as the defenders for their respective Ancients. Featured across the map are hostile units referred to as "neutrals", which are not aligned to either faction and are primarily located in the forests. Located on the northeast side of the river is a "boss" called "Roshan", who typically requires multiple team members to kill and drops strategically powerful items.
Players are provided with six inventory slots, which may be filled by purchasing items using gold, the primary currency of the game. Items vary in function—some merely enhance the statistics of a Hero, while others grant them additional active or passive abilities. The items' prices vary depending on their relative power. Though gold is granted steadily at a slow rate, the more expensive items are typically only purchased by Heroes who can accumulate gold at a much higher rate, usually by efficiently killing enemy creeps and Heroes, or by destroying structures. Killing non-player characters grants gold solely to the player who landed the final blow, whereas killing Heroes grants gold to the killer and any nearby allies.
Dota 2 features a variety of seasonal events, which provide players with the option of playing the game with special game modes that alter the aesthetics and objectives. With the seasonal event game modes, the central focus of the game shifts away from the standard battle composition, in order to focus on new objectives central to the seasonal events. Thus far, there have been three seasonal events to take place, including the Halloween-themed Diretide event, the Christmas-themed Frostivus event, and the New Bloom Festival, which celebrates the coming of spring.
