Dota 2 Matches: All About Pro-Level Events

The number of events that are linked to Dota 2 is rather impressive today. All of them differ in format, type, and level of competition. They can be held both in stadiums where the players are connected via LAN, and also held online. The necessity to learn more about Dota 2 matches can occur in case you want to get deeper into everything that is connected to this kind of eSports.

Match Types and Formats

As in other esports, such as League of Legends matches, there are four battle formats in professional Dota 2:

  • Best of one. Teams must win in one match, with a score of 1:0, which will determine the possibility of their further participation in the tournament.
  • Best of two. Intermediate Dota matches completely repeat the rules and features of the previous format, but, unlike it, the team can win with a score of 2:0, or the panel of judges counts a draw with a score of 1:1.
  • Best of three. The most popular and most frequently played format of Dota 2 matches. Here the team is lucky if it wins with a score of 2:0 or 2:1. Thus, in this type, either 2 or 3 matches are played per winner.
  • Best of five. The most protracted format of Dota 2 matches, but at the same time, it is impossible to do without it in the major leagues. The main outcomes of events are 3:0, 3:1, or 3:2, and it depends on the performance of each previous match on Dota 2 whether there will be a next game.

Hero Selection Procedure

As for the Captain’s mode that is applied for the tournaments, the captains ban heroes and choose five heroes for their team. Then, every player has to select a hero from the captain’s pick. 30 seconds are given for the bans, and the same time is suggested for the picks.

Every captain is offered 130 seconds of bonus time that can be applied within the selection. No heroes will be banned in case of the time within a ban selection runs out. In case it happens during the picks, a random hero is about to be selected. When there is Unranked matchmaking taking place, the player clicking the “become captain” button first will get this position.

Average Dota 2 Match Length

Normally, a Dota 2 match is about 40 minutes long. However, it can also be completed in 20-30 minutes. Some matches last for more than an hour. The longest Dota 2 match continued for three hours and twenty minutes.

Condition for Team Victory in Battle

A team wins if they destroy the other team’s Ancient first. This is a large structure that is in the base. In other words, this is the main building. In order to get to it, players will need to destroy the towers that attack the heroes in the lanes, as well as kill the opponent’s heroes and creeps.

Imagine Yourself in the Game — Bet on Dota 2 Match Outcome

Dota 2 eSports can become a nice reason to try yourself in betting on Dota 2 match outcome. This is a great chance to feel the game to the fullest and even earn some nice cash!

Dota 2 betting seems to be rather complex at first sight but as long as you research a bit, you will feel far more confident. This is what you can bet on in Dota 2:

  • Betting on results. This is the simplest choice to make in case you are a beginner. You should bet on what team will be the winner;
  • Betting on a match result with a map handicap/advantage;
  • Bet on the winner of the tournament. Here the bettor needs to predict which team will take first place in the overall standings of the competition. By the way, this is one of the most difficult outcomes, but at the same time profitable due to high odds;
  • First blood. This selection offers to bet on the team that will make the first kill of the enemy hero;
  • Who will kill Roshan. Here the bettor needs to predict which team will kill Roshan — the monster in the forest.

As for the tips that can turn out to be useful for those planning to place their bets on the upcoming Dota 2 matches, here they are:

  1. Do not start your betting journey from the hard bets. You need to get used to the process a bit and it should take time. As you get some experience, there is a sense of inputting more money;
  2. Start with betting on the match result (speaking of who will be the winner of the match). This is the simplest type of outcome, which is great for a beginner. As you begin to understand the different types of bets, you can gradually move on to narrower options;
  3. Pay enough attention to research and discover roster changes, teams’ forms, news that is somehow connected with the teams you will bet on, and so on. This should help!
