Dota 2 ditches sign-ups, now free for all
Valve has now ditched the requirement for signing-up to a waiting list to get to play Dota 2.
Curious MOBA players can now download Dota 2 on Steam at will and jump in to the battle arena chaos straight away.
The reason for the removal of the sign-up requirement is that Valve has made key improvements to the game's infrastructure since it moved from beta to full release in July.
Dota 2 currently has around 6.5 million monthly players which is good but still a far cry from League Of Legends' 32 million monthly players. It will be interesting to see just how Dota 2 stacks up now that it is completely free to all.
