DotA 2 beta or demo ?
« on: February 26, 2011, 01:02:33 AM »
Valve has released public betas of their games prior to launch in the past - what are the chances that DotA 2 will be subject to a similar release before launch?

Valve will obviously have a large team of internal testers from within the community working on QA way before a public beta comes out ofcourse, so by then we should have a fairly good idea of how things are shaping up with the game.

We plan on bringing you updates as soon as any news about a beta is released. We expect a public beta release around mid-late 2011 (based on release date).

When could demo/beta go out?
Would DOTA2 be payable or not?

There should be a closed beta right now as far as I know. There was a beta key giveout which I ofc missed because I had to sleep when it was shouted  :P But it should be ongoing!
Dno about public one though...

i dont think there have been any dota 2 'beta key giveaways'.  valve doesn't do that sort of thing, but of course i might be wrong.  do you have a source for this?

the top dota players can probably already play it but i doubt there's an actual closed beta going on right now which "normal" players can enter

There was a beta key giveout which I ofc missed because I had to sleep when it was shouted  :P But it should be ongoing!

source on that please ;O

From a very reliable source, I heard that it is going to start with an invite/application closed beta.

Completely wrong topic, there are plenty of discussions on it.
Bottom line - nobody knows for sure, but it is tilting towards pay to play.
