[Shacknews] Dota 2 LAN mode confirmed

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Valve's much-anticipated multiplayer action-RPG, Dota 2, will include both LAN and mod support, the developer announced today. Local-area-network enabled Dota 2 matches are obviously a nice option for all Dota 2 players, but is an especially attractive feature in China, home to the "largest Dota audience in the world."

Pretty cool, I just wish I got into the beta mad.gif

This has actually been known since last November if you looked in the right places but it seems to have only been reported elsewhere recently. Glad that you posted this though because I don't think most people are aware of it.

And as far as the LAN function goes, I've got no use for it at this point but whatever makes the gaming community happy is cool with me.

Edit - Going to post this info in the OCN Dota 2 thread.

I think you mean "Did you take the hardware survey" instead of get. Definitely a good way to get a beta key as it basically opts you in to the beta. Instructions below.

I took that in November, I think it was on the 9th or 10th, and I STILL haven't gotten an invite. I'm so disappointed.
Retribution.

Yeah I hear ya, there isn't a surefire method to get a key. What about the playdota.com giveaway? Also the beta might go public in the coming months so don't get too depressed about it!
