DOTA 2 is multiplayer online battle arena video game that was released in 2013 as sequel to Defense Of The Ancients. During each game, two 5-player teams compete to destroy each other’s “Ancient” while individual players focus on developing their own character’s skills. DOTA 2 was praised by critics for its enhanced graphics and rewarding gameplay despite its steep learning curve. DOTA 2 has become the most actively played game on Stream, with over 800,0000 players daily.
