It might have only been fully released 18 months ago, but DotA 2 has already smashed Steam records, becoming the most owned game on the digital distribution platform with more than 25 million copies downloaded. A force to be reckoned with, DotA 2 has overtaken previous Valve F2P Team Fortress 2 as their biggest free game. It’s a gaming behemoth, highlighted by the DOTA 2 International which had millions of dollars in prizes to be one, as well as beaming out worldwide to more than 20 million viewers.
We have no factual evidence to back this up but we imagine DOTA 2 is single-handedly responsible for 90% of mice sales, as mouse upon mouse is worn away from hours of blisteringly-fast clicking. DOTA 2 has taken the online world by storm with its addictive combination of strategy and RPG mechanics, this hyper-competitive take on the insanely popular MOBA genre offers some of the deepest and most satisfying online gaming mechanics around.
