Can't get a beta invite for DOTA2? Valve selling beta access for $39.99

Buying access to a free to play game. Yep.


No. Buying early access to a free-to-play game. Huge difference there. If you don't want to spend a dime on DotA 2, you don't have to. You just wait until it's open to the public and that's that. Paying for it you get early access plus some bonus items that would actually cost money if you got them from the store.

So, yeah. Let's blow things out of proportion.

Had beta access since November. Total playtime: 45 minutes. Back then, I couldn't see why it should serve as alternative to HoN. Exactly the same gameplay, but far less developed, and not available for Mac OS.


The game is a lot more polished now. HoN will always be trash.

Except how I was blowing things out of proportion with two sentences? Nerd.

You can't sign up for the beta anymore?

Or we just recognize trash games for what they are and don't feel the need to coddle developers.

Well, why is it a terrible game? Is it because it's a "knock-off" and doesn't carry the over-glorified "DotA" name? Examples, people. Examples!
