They fall like digital snowflakes loaded with gifts. They fall, periodically, randomly, in showers, and land in our inventories. We are of course talking about Dota 2 invites from Valve.

At the moment, there are two ways to play Dota 2: you can buy an early access pass from Steam, or you can receive an invite to the testing phase. And guess who’s sitting on a delicious stack of Dota 2 invites?


We are giving away 50 Dota 2 invites, starting today, over the course of the coming week.

In order to qualify for an invite, simply sign up for our forums, and leave a post in this thread, telling us why you think we should give you an invite.

At the end of the week, we’ll pick the 50 best replies, get in touch with the winners privately to get their emails, and send them the invites.

So, who’s ready for some mid-lane action?
