Diretide is a Dota 2 event. It began on October 30th 2012. Valve will restart this event in 2014, instead of 2013. Due to the fact that Dota 2 came out of the beta-test, Valve want to make it better for players, instead of doing events. Diretide will be held on 27th October 2014
There are 3 stages to Diretide, each lasting 10 minutes.
- Compete against the enemy team in collecting the most candy.
- Collect candy from Roshlings and deposit it in your candy bucket.
- Go on a raid and steal the enemy's candy from their bucket.
- After 20 minutes (after the 2nd stage), the team with the most candy wins!
The Trickster Awakens
- All this ruckus has awoken Roshan from his slumber.
- He will target a random hero, alternating between teams, and bully them for candy.
- Keeping a piece of candy in your inventory is recommended as failure to feed Roshan will result in death.
- After 20 minutes Roshan will be stuffed and you will be left candyless.
- You must team up with the enemy and go after Roshan to reclaim your candy.
- Defeating Roshan will reward you with items and delicious candy.
- The fastest Roshan slayers will be immortalized in the Diretide Hall of Fame!
