DoTA 2 soon for beta download via Steam; International DoTA tournament starts today!

EDIT: Changed title for clarity

It’s a crazy week with the DoTA 2 International Tournament kicking off in Germany. For those who don’t know, the Philippines has team Mineski.Infinity representing us for a pot prize of USD million. Their first match will be at 10:00AM GMT+2 against Team SGC of the Czech Republic. Full schedule here.

Also, DoTA 2 is now open for limited beta testing under the Steam service of Valve. You will need to express interest by logging in to the service. If you don’t have a Steam account you can sign up for one here.

Please pass the word. Our local team needs your full support. In the same way that we’ve shown support for the Azkals, the Dragon Boat team, and SMART Gilas, there’s no reason why we should not support our budding eSports DoTA team! You can watch the games live via streaming through this page.

It is not really “limited” anymore. Sure, it is technically still in beta, but there are so many keys/invites floating around that people typically use two or three accounts. I think the most I’ve ever seen online is 270k players, and this number keeps climbing as they release more keys.
