Valve answers your burning Dota 2 questions

Valve has launched its blog for Dota 2, which happens to include a lengthy Q&A. Keep in mind, these are the kind of answers that serious players are going to get more use out than anyone else. Even still, it’s vital information for a game we don’t know a heck of a lot about.

It would be best if you just read the whole Q&A session for yourself, but here’s the short version: there will be support for bots, cross-region play, reconnecting, and customizable hotkeys, plus there’s a heavy emphasis on the spectator-sport nature of the game.

Basically, it’s an updated take on Defense of the Ancients with many Valve design philosophies at hand. But you knew that already, right?
