Dota 2 Betting & Live Stream: What Is Dota 2?

Dota 2, designed by IceFrog and both developed and published by Valve, is a multiplayer online battle arena game, also known as MOBA, and is one of the most popular games in the Esports world at this time.

Matches see two teams of five go head-to-head, with each team defending their own base on the map. Each player controls a character that has their own special abilities and traits, and the aim of the game is for one team to destroy the other’s ‘Ancient’ – a large building that is built on the team’s base.

Dota 2 is the second instalment of the series and was first released back in July 13. Despite being almost seven years old, Dota 2 is still very popular with gamers and Esports players around the world.
