I wonder if the codes will chain... like the "chosen" gets 1 for him/herself and then 2 more. Will those two get 2 more each? or has this been answered....

There is no way they would do this. That would basically just make the game open to anyone if a friends could invite 2 friends who could then each invite 2 and so on.

Servers would blow up in no time if everyone got invites like that.

They did something similar in HoN and anyone with an email address can get a key. Here it's at least distributed through Steam trading. Though I must admit that I don't know if the situations (server preparation) are comparable.

I'd only take the D3 key because I know it's of a higher value. If someone told me to pick one and I wasn't allowed to trade/sell/etc. I'd pick the DOTA 2 key as well.

Haha, not sure if that is necessary. My sig rig isn't that much better than yours and the game runs great on it. Plus Valve wants to give the keys away to a variety of different systems and being that yours is old, your chances may actually increase. That's my theory anyway haha, I could be completely wrong.

That is probably really unlikely. Existing beta testers are also getting 2 keys plus the people that filled out the survey and get invited get 2 additional keys. There are only ~500 people at most on Dota 2 at any given time so this is already a big increase. IIRC this isn't just a one time giveaway from Valve, they are going to keep giving out keys in the weeks to come.

I did read somewhere earlier this week that Valve purchased like 2,000 servers or something like that.

I'm equally excited for both games, if they both get released around the same time my head is going to explode!

It’s Knight time!



In addition to Omniknight and Dragon Knight, today’s update includes another step in our process of tackling the problem of players abandoning games repeatedly. This is the first time we’ll be moving beyond just gathering data, and into the realm of taking action: players who have been identified as repeatedly leaving games will be moved into a separate matchmaking pool for a period of time. As usual, there’s a variety of other smaller additions and fixes.

We’d also like to welcome the new folks who received Dota 2 invites yesterday. If you weren’t one of the lucky folks, you’ll be happy to know we’ll be pushing out new invites every couple of days.

Finally, we’d like to give a shout out to Dreamhack’s Dota 2 tournament. If your team is in the area, sign up fast – there’s a limited number of slots.

You can read today’s changelog here.

Mhmm, just hoping to get one by next week. AFAIK, they only invited handed out roughly 500-800 beta keys during the first wave, I wonder if they're going to increase that cap or keep it the same for the next batch of invites.
