Without steam? Not a chance with any legit version.

And no, LAN is not implemented at the moment. Otherwise some random guy could emulate it and allow people to play it without steam and without betakeys (much like the relation with garena and battle.net), so that would be a nasty problem as long as the betakeys are a limited resource.

Currently, there is no support for Lan games. But who knows, its still beta. International is coming will Valve release DotA 2 Lan support? Who knows, its Valve time.

You can't play LAN at this moment. But you can go create a private lobby, input a password that you and the others would know, and let them filter that password so that they can see and join in your room.

The ''LAN'' is listed as a possibility in the game menu, but it isn't currently enabled as it's still in the works.

Default Re: how to play dota2 in lan?

Some people have created servers to host DotA 2 LOD modes and DotA 2 OMG mode. So if you poke around this area, you should be able to find a way to play through lan.

Read the tutorial, let me tell you you're wrong.
the Local Area Network is working. But this process is not official. It's only a interface for play dota 2 with Steam. and is working with or without internet...
