DOTA 2 beta becoming more popular than Skyrim, Counter-Strike on Steam

Friday, 11th May 2012 08:16 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Despite still being in only a beta, DOTA 2 is becoming even more popular than Counter-Strike 1.6/Source or The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, according to PC Gamer. While CS 1.6 and Source hold their own on US peak times, DOTA 2′s beta overtakes the two during downtime hours, indicating a more international audience for the title.

    Yeah the game is great and could be released.
    Missing heroes added via patches over the months…

    Not really a Beta anymore and i would like it to have new hereos every few weeks instead of them just all being there at once and thats it.

    Around 30000-50000 people online when i am, Europe evening.

    Just need more servers for all the regions, especially Australian/Russian and South America servers.

    You dont need to buy them, they are all free.

    LOL/HON/DOTA 2/BlizzardDota etc all free to play.
    But Dota 2 is still in closed beta so you need an invite to play.

    It's for a friend that really wants it, I got lucky and got a key but I got no one to play with. :(
    If so, contact me on steam.
