you need to send an application in for the beta. you can download the spectator client for free though.

just a tip - say you have very little to no experience when you do the application. apparently you get in faster if you're new to it. I played dota relentlessly when it first came out, and it took 2 months for me to get an invite. my friends who said they never played it got it after a week.

I used to love the original dota, easly played 5000 games of it - but I really wasn't impressed with Dota 2. really convoluted set-up and I didn't really see any champions that were particularly interesting.

after playing dota for years, and coming to league this past year, I consider LoL the true dota successor.

Just do the survey, I got my key in less than a week. How long it takes to get one ranges, I did the survey when they were handing out a ton though.

It takes like 5 minutes to do the survey. It talks about past experiences with dota. I never played it before, so my answers were like "What level do you usually end on in a game of dota? 1" things like that. You can make some things up if you really have no idea what to put, but the game is definitely worth a 5 minute survey

Wait, so I have a beta key?
Because it says "You already own Dota 2" and there's this other button that says "play now"


Depends, do you see it in your list of games in the home page?

If so I think you have a key, since I used to only have Portal and Half-life there, and now it says I can install Dota 2.

I tried it out. It was pretty fun but there was a few issues I had with it. I think they'll be fixed or at least made into not such significant issues by the time they go into full release.


So yea try it if you want, though I'd probably wait for full release.
