Dota 2 — Online Game Known Throughout the World

One of the most popular multiplayer games in the world is Dota 2. Its history begins far back in 2011, when the first version was released. Even before that, Dota existed as a mod for the cult game Warcraft 3. The modification first appeared in 2003. Two years later, IceFrog began to grow Defense of the Ancients. Already in the new decade, the game designer, together with Valve, released a game that became independent of Warcraft. Then, however, long litigation followed, but Gabe Newell defended his new project.

Dota 2 gained popularity almost immediately after its release. Initially, it was in the closed testing stage, invites were a real luxury. But then the game became available to all gamers who pushed to play it. Many are stuck in Dota for tens of thousands of hours!

The essence of the game is standard for all projects of the MOBA genre. Two teams take part in the match, each of which consists of 5 people. Gamers before the start of the match must choose a character for which they will play. If we talk about Dota 2 eSports, then professional players approach this stage with the utmost responsibility and seriousness — you can outplay your opponent already at this stage. Then the game begins. The idea is to destroy the enemy’s throne. Opponents and towers become obstacles on the way. The match can end in 15 minutes or drag on for 2 hours.

The Success Story of Esports Dota 2 — The Most Profitable Discipline

Dota is one of the most famous computer sports. The classic Defense of the Ancients also enjoyed great success in the professional scene. With the transition to the form of independent play, the discipline has advanced significantly professionally.

For the first time Dota 2 esports loudly declared itself in 2011. Then the first ever professional tournament for this game was announced. It was The International, which took place at GamesCom in August of the same year. The fans’ attention was drawn to the fact that this was a demonstration of the game in action. Another factor that has added popularity to this online game is the impressive prize pool. $1.6 million was allocated to encourage the players, the winner took a million. Ukrainians from Natus Vincere became champions then.

Over the 10 years of its existence, esports Dota 2 has expanded significantly. A lot of leagues, professional teams, organizations, broadcasting studios were formed, news sites, forums were created completely devoted to this game. Dota has formed a whole industry around itself. Broadcasts of matches gather hundreds of thousands of viewers at once. Major Dota 2 tournaments are held in large stadiums dedicated to traditional sports. Gradually, Dota is getting closer to them in popularity.

Dota 2 is the most profitable esports discipline. The top five tournaments in terms of the number of prize money are all competitions from the world of this game. Dota 2 esports is leading the way thanks in large part to The International. This tournament has become the main one not only in a particular game, but in the entire industry as a whole. Fans from all disciplines watch TI matches with gusto.

Also, fans can independently participate in the formation of the prize pool of this tournament. To do this, you need to buy a special item — the Compendium. 25 percent of the sales go towards the prize pool for the next The International. For the first time, funds were raised in this way in 2013. Then the amount of $2.8 million was received. In 2021, fans raised over $40 million. And this amount will continue to grow, as will the popularity of the game.
