So you’ve seen The International and want to learn Dota 2? Great, we’ll help you get started. Now, unlike League of Legends, Dota 2 has an offline mode where you can practice against bots and learn champions. Which can instantly stop you from getting a bucket load of hate from the community. Every hero in Dota 2 is available to everyone for free. In Dota 2 the only thing you can buy with real money is cosmetic items for heroes (of which you still have a chance of randomly getting for free just by playing). Check out the list of resources below to start your journey in to Dota 2.
