DOTA 2 or Defence of the Ancients 2 to use its full title is being backed by Valve to make it more accessible to new players. DOTA was a very popular mod years ago with a very serious fan base which made it very hard for new comers to enter into the complex game and have any chance.

Lets take a look at the new DOTA 2 system requirements...
