Since The International, everyone is trying to get a Dota 2 beta key.
But, many of us are still without one, clueless when will we get it. We joined all the possible contests, liked 100 Facebook pages, but still no sign of a key or an invite?
– Removed few links
– Since the post is quite old, I need you providing me links to current giveaways. Please post a comment linking to a legit giveaway.
– Added new contests (raidcall, alienware, reddit)
Well, we won’t give a key to every visitor , but we will point you where you can get your own. There are many contests currently giving out the beta key, and we’ll try to name them all.
To find out more about our own contest, scroll to the bottom of this post.
Guys from Gamersbook are doing a huge and awesome giveaway. You are not only able to win 50 Dota 2 beta keys, you can win more, much more with them. How about three Razer Naga hex mouses and latest GeForce video card? Or an in-game courier to spice up your games as soon as you win one beta key from the contest? All you have to do is visit the contest at Gamersbook and have some luck.
Raidcall is currently giving 50 Dota 2 betakeys on their Facebook page. All you have to do is share this photo (photo on their Facebook wall, not this one) and like their page. Join the contest here.
This is a US only contest. If you are from US, just login on Alienware Arena website, write few posts (to get level 7, at least what users write) and claim your key.
Reddit is a forum-like place, if you didn’t know by now. So there is a subreddit (kinda like sub-forum) for sharing Dota 2 keys. Lots of users are giving away keys. You either have to write a text why you deserve it, draw something or … well you get it. Open the shareDota2 subreddit and get your key.
The PlayDota Beta key draw. Probably your biggest chances are right here. 80 keys are given every single day, and on thanksgiving they gave massive 500 keys. But, if you are an older member of PD forums (registred before 2010), you have double chances of winning one of the prestige keys.
All you have to do is open this thread, and post some random thing. The PlayDota bot is drawing keys automatically, and if you win one you’ll get a private message shortly.
PlayDota forums. Many users got their keys from the draw, or somewhere else and are sharing them with the community for some effort. Whether it’s guessing the riddle, liking their page or just posting, there is a way of getting one key. Simply open this link to browse the Beta key forums.
Well as written above, we have our own contest. Look at this as helping others, not getting a key. And we’ll reward one of you for helping with a Dota2 invite.
