Check Out The DotA 2 Tournament Match Replays Online Now

Just as a friendly public service announcement, we wanted to let you all know that the Dota 2 tournament matches from “The International” are online and available for your viewing pleasure. Before this moment we never really knew what the second game would look like, and these match videos will give us some insight. It will also give us jealousy.

The video, posted below, does show us what we already knew about the game itself, as well as some things we were looking forward to seeing. “Denying” makes a return in the game, which is something that games like League of Legends have tried to remove. For those who don’t know what denying is, it’s a tactic used by players to stop their opponents from gaining gold and experience. Players will kill off their own minions and such in order to do this. Of course, all of the old heroes are back in the new title, and it plays out like the original with updated graphics.

The game does sport some neat social features, though we won’t be able to see them until the beta rolls out for us. In the meantime, check out the tournament match videos, like the one below. What do you think? Was it what you were expecting?
