Default How do people get 100's of DOTA 2 invites ???


Ok, so I'm new on this forum here, and to DOTA 2. I've been trying unsuccessfully for 2 months now to get a DOTA 2 invite from Valve, or through legit giveaways, but still have had no luck.
Then I see some folks having so many invites stashed up in their inventory. I mean, I can understand someone having 2 or 4 invites through trades, but some folks have like a 100.
So how exactly do these folks get so many invites, when the rest of us can't even get one?
Are their other channels to obtain DOTA 2 invites for these folks ??

They are hoarding so they can sell/trade the invites. They probably buy out their competitors and then set their own price.

I wouldnt say 100s but I'd say about 30ish anyway they probably buy it off people

In-game right now people are trading keys, couriers etc.. for invites

I dont get the logic behind it though since after the "beta", invites and keys alike would be useless

If I were you I'd buy them on the original source (Dota Store) since it not only comes with just a key it comes with items also that wouldnt be worthless any time soon.

I don't know, 40 bucks seems like a steep price for a game that's going to be free in some time. I would have probably paid Valve 15-20 bucks just for the beta key, but I really don't feel like buying stuff for another 20 bucks which I probably will never use.
And I really won't pay some hoarder 20 bucks for an invite, if Valve doesn't gain any profit from it. Its their IP, so if I'm shelling out cash, atleast some of it should go to Valve.

I doubt so since Valve is selling it on the Dota 2 store.

Just realised that it's still possible. Good luck!

Those invites come from Dota players who dared to make me angry. They don't need them anymore.

Its still possible to sign up on Dota 2 website right now for a BETA key with the h/w survey, so there is a chance that VALVE is still giving away free beta invites. Otherwise they would have removed the option to sign up once the Dota 2 store started selling the invite.

They're still giving. Unless that is fake but I don't know why someone would want to do that.

I'll share my secret.And it's quite easy actually.. got a total if 24 keys ALL FROM PLAYDOTA DRAW

Although the thread says posting more often doesn't increase your chances of winning the draw, it actually does.

Since we needed a playdota accout to download AI map.. almost every dota player I know irl had an account pre 2011.

I used each and every one of them and posted around 100 posts from each in the beta key thread...
Each account was awarded a key within 2-3 days.

I stopped doing this once all of my friends got into the beta... as it became time consuming, and 2 extra invites stopped being distributed, making it less worthwhile.

Also: Gosugamers contacts helped my friend get 5 keys for our team
