Dota 2: cheats, game features

Dota 2 is a computer online game in the MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) genre, designed for multiple players, which combines elements of strategy and role-playing game. Born back in 2013, DotA 2, after only a few years, won the love of millions of players around the world. In this article we will look at the features of the game, as well as many cheats for Dota 2.

A bit of history

Dota first appeared in the highly popular Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos computer game for the early 2000s. It was a regular card that includes a cooperative mode for four players fighting off endless waves of creeps (non-player characters are monsters controlled by the system, and for killing which the hero gets some kind of reward). The purpose of the map was to destroy the key structures of the enemy. In the future, it was this card that gained particular popularity from all UMS cards in the network.

Gradually, Dota grew into a separate independent game, having already an impressive number of fans, and after a few more years, various tournaments with huge prize funds were held as part of this game.

In 2009, rumors began to appear on the Internet about the desire of Valve to restart an outdated DotA. Dota 2 was announced in the fall of 2010, and the game was scheduled for release in June 2011. Officially, it was released only in July 2013, being in beta testing for a long time.

Now Dota 2 is involved in eSports, where teams of professional players from around the globe compete in various championships and tournaments. The most ambitious of them is the contest The International, which is organized annually by the company Valve.

Gameplay Features

The main part of the game Dota 2 falls on player character development. The key role in "DotA" is assigned to the team game (team play). It is she who decides who will win in the end.

Players are distributed in two teams, five people each. The first team - The Radiant - the bright side, the second dark - The Dire. Between them are three connecting lines, the so-called "corridors". These corridors are defended by defenses, as well as endless waves of non-player characters — creeps.

Heroes from the game Dota 2

Each player controls his so-called hero, which can be developed depending on his main characteristics (intelligence, strength, agility).The hero in the game gets experience to increase his level, earns gold, for which he can buy various items that enhance it and give additional abilities. Gold is the main currency of the game, and you can get it for killing enemy creeps and heroes, as well as in a small amount from your base.

The main task of the players is to destroy the main structure of the enemy. The team that did it first, and becomes the winner.

Design features

When developing a new "DotA", there was one main requirement for it - the preservation of all key aspects of the original map with their transfer to the Source engine. As a result, a new game appeared before the players with all the familiar qualities of the original, only in an improved form. Jason Hayes, who was a composer for the 3rd Warcraft, joined Valve in order to work with Tim Larkin on delivering a unique sound line for the new Doty. The names of characters, their abilities, objects, landscape design and many other details of the original map were almost completely preserved, but transferring all this to a new engine was not an easy task.

We now turn to the Dota 2 cheat commands.


It is worth noting that cheat commands are prohibited and do not work as usual. They are designed for a test mode in which there is an opportunity to play with all the characters, check the effectiveness of your chosen strategy, or just experiment with the game. If you are a beginner and are not familiar with DotA, then this mode using cheat commands will significantly speed up the process. No one will hurt you to explore each character and try out all the tactics of battles. Of course, this mode is used not only by beginners, but also by professional players. The fact is that DotA includes a huge number of combinations, the effect of which can be tested only in practice, and creating suitable conditions for this is not always possible. That's exactly what the mode was designed for using cheat commands.
