Valve removes DotA 2 player restrictions
Valve has removed its shackles from DotA 2, allowing players to access the mmo without having to register or queue for approval. Most recently, DotA 2 has only granted entry into the game via a queue system, in order to control the influx of players while the community has expanded. New advancements at the battle rpg's headquarters have resulted in a registration-free DotA 2 experience for everyone.
"As we have recently completed a set of server management upgrades as well as released a huge number of enhancements to the new user experience, we’re going to remove all restrictions to playing Dota 2."
In light of the new easier access to the MOBA, Valve have also proudly proclaimed that they've hit the 6.5 million mark for their monthly player-base; flaunting that they're prepared for many more.
"Signups are no longer required to access the game, and we encourage everyone to join the 6.5 million active monthly users currently playing Dota 2. If you have a friend who hasn’t tried Dota 2 yet, be sure to take advantage of the new recruitment feature to get additional bonuses for both you and your friend."
This will also, rather uneventfully, mark the official launch of the MOBA, so hopefully an event or something celebratory is on the way.
