Геймплей

На каждый игровой матч игра выбирает и распределяет случайным образом (с учетом рейтинга MMR и порядочности) десять человек в две команды по пять игроков. Одна команда играет на стороне «сил Света», другая — «сил Тьмы». Река разделяет квадратную игровую карту на две части таким образом что на противоположных концах карты размещены крепости сил Света и Тьмы — главные сооружения каждой из команд. Цель игры — уничтожить вражескую крепость и не дать врагу уничтожить свою крепость (трон). Неопределенность в игру добавляет туман войны — вы не видите на мини-карте действия героев и существ противника вне обзора союзных героев, существ и вардов.

Дважды в минуту из казарм каждой из сторон появляются крипы, которые идут «на автопилоте» в направлении вражеской базы по трем «соединяющим крепости» линиям, охраняемым башнями, чтобы сразиться с крипами и героями противоположной команды. Если существ нет, крипы автоматически атакуют попадающиеся на пути строения. Чтобы добраться до вражеских казарм одной линии необходимо последовательно уничтожить три башни этой линии. Чтобы добраться до вражеского трона, необходимо уничтожить хотя бы одну пару казарм и две башни, охраняющие трон.

Перед началом матча, игроки вправе забанить десять героев и затем в порядке очереди выбрать себе одного из 119 героев. Герои выбираются поочередно и скрытно по системе 2-2-1 — герои «открываются» для соперников после того как обе команды выбрали по два героя, затем еще по два, затем по одному. Герой будет забанен, если игроки обоих команд выбрали одного и того же героя одновременно.

Игрок управляет героем с уникальными способностями до конца матча, получают золото и опыт за убийство крипов и героев, участие в сражениях. Золото необходимо для покупки предметов, расходных материалов, байбека. Опыт — для повышения уровня героев и изучения новых способностей и талантов, усиливающих способности или самого героя.

Каждый из героев имеет разный баланс атрибутов (силы, ловкости, интеллекта) и уникальные скилы, предназначенные для выполнения роли в игре: керри, мидлейнер, оффлейнер, поддержка, полная поддержка. В идеале, каждый из пяти игроков берет на себя одну роль и обязанности, — что обуславливает выбор героя с соответствующими навыками. В хорошей ситуации, понимание игры и умение играть в Доту компенсирует неправильный или однобокий выбор героев. Слаженная командная игра в Доте 2 компенсирует сильный и жадный пик, нацеленный на продолжительный фарм.

About Tiers[edit]

Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3 and Tier 4 are the tiers for the most important tournaments on this wiki. They are categorized as follows:

Name Typical prize pool Description
Tier 1 $300,000+ Former Premier. Tier 1 Tournaments offer an outstanding prize pool, are almost exclusively played offline, and feature the best teams from all over the world.
Tier 2 $50,000+ Former Major. Tier 2 Tournaments feature a large prize pool and a good number of top-tier teams.
Tier 3 $3,000+ Former Minor. Tier 3 Tournaments offer a smaller prize pool and less prestige than Tier 2 Tournaments but still draw a high level of competition.
Tier 4 $3,000 or less Tier 4 Tournaments are the lowest ranked events, almost always played online with no top teams participating.

While the prize pool is an important factor for categorizing tournaments, it does not equal a specific tier.

Dota 2[edit]

While initially playing Dota in Australia, ana made the decision to move from Melbourne to Shanghai in December 2015 to continue his pursuit in becoming a professional Dota player, where he joined the CDEC in-house league allowing him to compete against highly rated Chinese players. The invitation to play in China saw him drop out of his high school, where his mother was half-supportive at first, however with Anathan’s brother convincing her, the family later showed full support and still do to this day.

Ana began his professional Dota 2 career by joining Invictus Gaming in March 2016 as a substitute for Ferrari_430. His most notable accomplishment with the team was defeating Newbee in the grand finals of NEA 2016. Following The International 2016, ana left Invictus Gaming to join a newly rebuilt OG. It was later revealed that his departure from Invictus Gaming was due to a rift with their organisation’s management with their contract and other factors involving their results. In November, he won his first ever tournament with OG at Elimination Mode Season 2 and later won his first ever Valve and premier event by beating Ad Finem 3-1 in the grand finals of The Boston Major.

The team’s performance continued to stay consistent with additional top 4 performances at Dota Pit League Season 5, StarLadder i-League StarSeries Season 3, and Dota 2 Asia Championships 2017. Ana would then take his second major at Kiev, and the team was invited for The International 2017. OG’s had a rough series of tournaments leading up to the International with early eliminations at The Manila Masters and EPICENTER 2017, however, they did finish fourth at Mars Dota 2 League 2017. During the International, the team failed to make it to the upper bracket, and finished 7 — 8th, falling at the hands of LGD. After the International, ana announced that he would be taking a break from the competitive scene. Following his break, he later joined Echo International in early 2018, and returned to OG in early June, after the departure of Fly and S4.

The newly re-formed OG roster of ana, N0tail, Topson, 7ckngMad, and Jerax qualified to The International 2018 through the European open qualifiers. Although they were power-ranked at the bottom among the 18 teams participating, OG pushed through the Upper Bracket and won the Grand Finals against LGD Gaming in a 3-2 series. Notably, Ana’s dominating performance on Ember Spirit in game 5 immortalized his signature mastery on the hero. Following their achievement, Ana announced he would be taking an extended break from DotA and was moved to OG’s inactive roster , and was a substitute at AMD Pro Series 2018 in December 2018, playing in his home country.

He returned to the active team in March 2019, after a few months off as OG was struggling yet again to achieve any significant results. With ana back on the roster, OG were finally able to secure a qualifier for a major: the MDL Disneyland Paris Major. A 5-6th-place finish, after being eliminated by Team Liquid, awarded them enough DPC points to make it into the top 12 of the DPC. They were as good as qualified for The International 2019, though not yet mathematically. By qualifying and finishing top 8 at the final major of the season, the EPICENTER Major, their ticket to TI9 was secured.

After easily topping their group at TI9, without dropping a single series, OG easily made it to the upper bracket of the main event. This would be almost a repeat compared to the previous year: OG beat Newbee (who were almost the same roster as the previous year’s VGJ.Storm) 2-0, Evil Geniuses 2-1, and in the UB finals they again beat PSG.LGD 2-1. The only difference this year was that nobody underestimated OG and they entered the Grand Finals as heavy favorites, with some experts going so far as to predicting the second 3-0 sweep in TI history. Especially ana’s carry Io, Alchemist, and Faceless Void drew a lot of respect from their opponents. In the end, OG beat Team Liquid 3-1, making ana and his teammates the first ever repeat TI winners.

Biography[edit]

History[edit]

This section is a stub. You can help Liquipedia by expanding it.

The organization has been represented by more than 50 players. Since 2003 they have won more than 100 gold, 170 silver and 220 bronze medals in more than 10 esports disciplines.[]

A women’s team was established on September 5, 2012.

Virtus.pro Polar was formed on September 18, 2014 by NVMI players. It was later rebranded to ASUS.Polar as an attempt to create a separate brand under a single ownership, but it didn’t turn out to be a success, and the team was merged with the main Virtus.pro roster and ceased to exist as a brand.

On May 30th 2016, after accusations that the team had used None as a standin for ALOHADANCE in The Summit 5 Qualifiers Finals vs Ad Finem, using ALOHADANCE’s account to hide the action, Virtus.pro admitted that they had broken the rules, and were removed from the tournament.

The entire Dota 2 squad was dropped by the organization on 30 June 2016, after increasingly poor results culminated in a disappointing 6th-place finish in the Qualifiers for The International 2016, thus failing to qualify for yet another event. Following the International, Virtus pro later revamped their Dota 2 squad and won The Summit 6.

Sustained success followed, and from 2017 to 2018 the team won a total of five majors, though success at The International remained elusive. In late 2020, a new roster consisting of the VP.Prodigy squad was signed, leading to impressive results in the Dota Pro Circuit regional leagues in 2021. Virtus Pro were the only team in any region to finish 7-0 in both of their first two seasons.
