Dota 2

Tech Advisor - - FEATURE -

We might as well start with Dota 2, con­sid­er­ing it still main­tains the big­gest e-sports prize on the planet: the In­ter­na­tional 5 fea­tured a prize pool of $18 mil­lion this year. It’s huge. Dota 2 is a suc­ces­sor to the War­Craft III mod DOTA, or De­fense of the An­cients, the god­fa­ther of the now-boom­ing Mul­ti­player on­line bat­tle arena (MOBA) genre. Play­ers pick a hero and bat­tle it out against the other team, com­pet­ing to bring down the enemy base by out­ma­noeu­vring foes with skilful tac­tics. Or, if you’re like us, you pick a hero and mess some­thing up five min­utes in and your en­tire team gets an­gry be­cause they know you just lost them the game.
