How can you even expect open beta when half of the hero pool isn't even in yet and there's still a number of prevalent bugs in the system?

Open-beta =/= Release of the game.

The blog is down to a database error more like an website update rather than open beta. Where do you people come up with this?

Because you need to crash a server to make more beta keys. Amazing technology.

i don't think so.. they haven't tested their servers yet, to make a open beta, lots of bugs, and the game is not improved YET, to be able to go in open beta.

That's your opinion, cause mine is that we only need tutorials now.

And of course I know that.

Open Beta is mostly done to test out server stability and such. Going open beta when the game is not yet very stable is just asking for trouble.

Fail. Three-Quarter of the Hero Pool is already available if not Two-Third.

I don't care about the open-beta, I already have a key:

Steam Community :: ID :: Shin


But I thinks it's really strange, it has never be down for so long (5 hours now ...).

Valve are still in the office, so it should be back atm.

There is 61 heroes in Dota 2 right now.

Not even 66% of the entire DotA's pool.

61 is 58~ish% of 104.

50% is a lot closer to 58% than 75%.

Who failed here?

Of course, mine was just a guesstimate but still, try giving some effort before you declare someone as "fail".

There is no way that Dota 2 is going into Open Beta soon. In fact doing so would be a HUGE mistake. Look at all the people complaining about how unfinished the game is currently, then multiply that by 10,000 and all you'll hear on his forum and everywhere else are whiners.

At the very earliest Open beta will start Spring of next year, and that is assuming they keep pushing out roughly the same sized patches every week.

Not to mention we are missing tons of heroes, and they have never ONCE said Open Beta would start soon.

tl;dr - The game is great but not even close to ready for Open Beta. Maybe next Spring.

It says database connection error. Do you think if they are making a new website, they will introduce an error to do that?
