Dota 2 is the latest version of DotA (Defense of the Ancients) from Valve. This game carries the MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) genre which combines the concept of strategy games. Dota 2 uses the 5 vs 5 gameplay concept. Both teams have to tear down enemy towers on each lane to be able to spend the enemy’s ancient. Each player can control 1 hero character with different skills. Heroes who have a lot of kills and destroy enemy towers will have a lot of Gold. That gold can be used to buy defense or attack items. Players can also use it to add high experience (EXP) to raise their hero level.
The concept sounds very easy and interesting. However, the point of this game is not to look at the many kills you get. The most crucial point is which team can destroy the ancient first.
Therefore, this game uses the 5 vs 5 concept, which requires teamwork to create a strategy so that you can destroy your opponent’s ancient as quickly as possible. Interestingly, you can play alone with players from other cities or have a party with close friends.
