What is DOTA 2?
DOTA 2 is a MOBA, ie: a real-time action strategy game. On a map with three large corridors two teams of five players face each other. The map is split by a river that divides the control zone of each team; The ones in the lower left corner are the Radiant and the ones in the upper right are the Dire.
The control zone of each team is defended by Torres and Creeps, who go to the attack to fight in first person against other Creeps and against the Heroes, thus controlled by the AI or the players. The objective of the game is to finish with the Ancient, the primordial building of each equipment and that is at the end of the map.
The games last a good few minutes and we will progress in each phase. As we advance and kill enemy Heroes and Creeps, we gain experience and gold. With the gold we buy objects in the respawn point, and with these objects we can definitely overcome the rival in the final phase of the game, when we are close to his Ancient.
