Dota 2 match rules
Each match in Dota 2 starts according to the standard principle. The rules for holding individual fights differ depending on the type and mode of the fight.
In Custom Matches in all modes except Captains Match, players receive their characters, then split up in lanes and start the game. In the “captains mode” there is a draft stage, which in general terms looks like this:
The drafting process has a clear formula. By analogy with chess, in Dota 2 spades start from the Radiant side.
Radiant starts the draft by banning the character, later the opponent does the same. Then the procedure is repeated one more time.
Having made two bans each, the teams move on to choosing the pick of characters. The side that made the first ban, in our case Radiant, is the first to choose a character. The opponent responds by picking two heroes at once, and the closing action of the stage will be the choice of Radiant the second character.
The second stage of the draft starts in the same way: Radiant ban, Dire ban, Radiant ban, Dire ban. Then the parties once again exchange locks in the same order, after which they proceed to the choice of characters. This is where Dire starts picking the first hero, and then it peaks at Radiant picking 2 characters. Closes the Dire pick stage.
In the final stage of the draft, teams make 2 bans in order Radiant — Dire — Radiant — Dire, and then there is a Radiant pick and a Dire pick.
Schedule of matches in Dota 2
The main tournament track in Dota 2 is DPC. It takes place in 6 regions and has general rules for all participants.
The competitive season in Dota 2 is divided into several rounds: winter, spring and summer. Each round includes games of two divisions — upper and lower.
Each league has 8 teams. The first division members compete for seats in the majors at the end of each round and DPC points to get to The International later. Participants in the lower division play in the hope of getting into the upper league, from where the two worst teams are relegated at the end of each round.
Due to the intensity of the competitive season, the schedule of Dota 2 matches is often crowded: regional leagues can overlap and it can be easy to get confused there. In case of such incidents, we recommend using our resource.
We follow what is happening in all competitive leagues and provide information about upcoming, future and live Dota 2 matches. In addition, we have a prediction section where analytical notes are published on the most interesting matches of various calibers, and where each user can make own predictions.
Since its announcement in 2011, Dota 2 has become one of the fundamental disciplines in eSports. Millions of dollars are raffled at game championships, Dota 2 matches attract the attention of hundreds of thousands of spectators, and becoming an esportsman is the dream of a large number of players.
Dota’s formula for success is difficult, but the basis of the game is matches. There are several types of matches in DotA, and they also differ depending on the game mode.
Talking about the main rules and types of fights in DotA 2.
Globally, matches in Dota 2 are divided into several types. Conventionally, they can be divided into the category of “tournament” and “user”.
“Tournament” matches are played in Dota 2 championships, while custom matches are available in the game client itself. In essence, these are the same concepts, but they have some differences.
Dota 2 competitive match formats
Tournament matches, in turn, are divided into formats. There are several of them:
Each format has its own characteristics and is used depending on the disintegration. Bo1 fights are most often played in Double-Elimination tournaments, in the first rounds of the Lower Bracket. B
Bo2 matches are classic for the group stages of the formats. They take place in common Round-Robin grids, GSL groups and other formats.
Most of the Dota 2 match schedule includes fights in the bo3 format. Such matches take place in regional leagues at DPC, local and large-scale tournaments.
Bo5 fights are the most exclusive Dota 2 match format. Such fights are played in the finals of tournaments of various sizes, including Majors and The International.
Dota 2 custom match formats
Custom matches in Dota 2 have the Bo1 format provided by the game developers. They differ in game modes.
There are several custom match modes in Dota 2. Globally, these are rated and non-rated games, and are further divided into mods:
You can select the game mode in custom matches in the DotA menu. Among other things, match modes in Dota 2 are divided into ranked and non-ranked.
All Pick, Captains Mode, Random Draft and Captains Draft mods are available in the ranking. There are also additional modes with modified rules: Ability Draft, where players choose abilities for their hero from the pool of proposed ones, All Random Deathmatch, where after each death a different character is randomly selected for the player, and 1v1 Mid Only, where only the central lane is available.
