Dota 2 Beta Keys [Updated]

GosuGamers notes that Valve has quietly removed the requirement of a beta key for Dota 2, though this is not the case for those playing the MOBA game in China. Sure enough, checking on the game's listing on Steam included the message: "You already own Dota 2." Thanks Videogamer. Update: Apparently there was confusion here with spectator mode, and keys are still required to play the game. Apologies for the error.

You can get Dota 2 keys from the Dota2 bot on steam:

http://steamcommunity.com/id/dota2bot

Also, it'll take your keys if you want to get rid of them out of your steam inventory.

Yeah, you still need keys to play. The reason why everyone has it in their inventory (even before this) is because it's free to download and you can use it for spectator mode without a key.

Note GosuGamers TOTALLY SCREWED this up. DOTA2 still requires keys. They were apparently too stupid to say INSTALL the game and test whether their 'news' was true.

It is not. They did it for pageviews for something they knew was false.

FWIW DOTA2 is a free to play game, so technically you do all own it.

FWIW my Steam account has said "You already own Dota 2" for months (I do not).

And just about everyone on my (admittedly tiny) friends list is said to have it, too. I don't think any of them do, either.

Damn! Missed that boat!

Eh, not really, keys have been for sale on the Steam marketplace for a dollar or less for the past year or more. I should probably get around to trying this some time...

Hah I still have 6 copies in my inventory to give away and I've already given away another 6. No idea why they game me so many freakin copies.


Same. I probably gave away 3 or 4 and received 3 or 4 more.
