Competitive scene

From Dota 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Dota 2 is played competitively around the world. Professional teams attend tournaments sponsored by companies, organizations, and Valve itself. Players who have purchased access to tournaments may view matches and voice commentary with DotaTV, a spectating feature built into the Dota 2 client. Live match streaming is also available on various community websites.

The history of competitive Dota began in 2004, and has since continued to evolve, with new players and strategies emerging onto the scene. As of The International 2015, professional Dota 2 is the highest paying esport in the world.
