Check Your Emails, Dota 2 Beta Invites Are Being Sent (But Not By Me)

Yesterday, it was announced, and today, it is happening: Valve is ramping up the numbers of participants in the Dota 2 beta.

If you took part in the survey, go check your email and then, more importantly, check your spam folder. If there's nothing in there, unlucky! If there's something in there, congratulations, you and two friends are now part of the beta.

While we're on the subject of Dota and betas, I'd like to point something out: I don't work for Valve. I work for Kotaku. I don't send out the invites. I just pass the news onto you. So don't send me emails like these people did!

I accidentally made a mistake(I put that i played with 108 heroes instead of 104, because last article i read about dota said dota has 108 heroes and i have automatically put 108 instead of 104) while i was filling in the survey, so i was wandering if there is any way to correct the mistake.

Friend gives the game more than 5 years, and I'm dying to play dota 2.

please send me an invite. Can not stand to wait. Thank you!

Dear Luke,

I am a huge HUGE dota fan and have been a dota player ever since version 5.84c came out. I've been dying to play dota 2 and would just ask from you 2 beta keys. For me and a friend to play with.

Thank You,

The only game ive played since is dota, i hooked half of my town in dota now literally the only game that is played in pubs is dota so i wanna ask is there anything i can do to earn myself a dota2 beta key im desperate at this point i tried everything i can think of but all atempts fail im willing to pay whatever is needed to play

    P.S are you a valve employee?

    (Yes, i am joking :P)

    i didnt fill out my survey yesterday and now it looks like im not going to get my key in the first round of invites. if anyone reading this can donate one of their keys to a dota die hard who NEEDS to play asap please flick me an email [email protected] steam account is sourgrapez

    Cheers boys.

      Anyone who gets in gets 2 invite keys to give away, I am told.

        well i got in, so I guess i now have 2 extra keys <3

      dota 2 site is back up now btw,

    No Dota invite for me then :(

    I tried to guess them all cuz i was unable to find the "Never played DOTA" button :P

      yeah I was exactly the same haha I just tried to picture it as LoL

    Is it just me or is the dota 2 site down? I tried redeeming my email, but didn't get the page to load.
    can someone else check if is down for them?

      If one of my friends(who I am planning to invite) doesn't want it, I'll send one your way. Don't hold your breath though.

        all good man thanks for the thought

    i got one but it looked REALLY dodgy

      Send me the invite and i'll check for you and send you the friend one if it works :)

    I was interested, then Blizzard Dota was announced, now ill just LoL till that comes out.

      : /

        if this game plays three games, he dies


            Just not interested as much as i was, rather play LoL till Bota comes out.. for my rts action anyway.
