Dota 2 and Dota 2 test
I've recently got the dota 2 test, which infact I think is the invite. Im currently downloading it, but it occured to me that the original Dota 2 that I downloaded before the test was already in my computer and I launched it and suprisingly I could get into the gameplay menu, which I couldnt acces before, so My question is,
Do I need both of them? If I dont, which one should i uninstall

Just noticed that u wont need the beta test, the original dota 2 is fine. I didnt like to have a copy, thus i deleted the other one, plus freed up some unnecessary space

Dota 2 = the spectator client or the actual game, depending on whether or not you have an invite or the game is actually released
Dota 2 Test = Right now it's like the beta of the beta, testing for patches is done here before the changes are made to Dota 2

I had Dota 2 for a while which during this time I used to watch matches and read about heroes, then when I got the email that I was accepted I was able to actually play it, it was then that I noticed "Dota 2 Test" was also in my library.

If you don't want to Test or help with Testing then you don't need Dota 2 Test. It's just like if you have Counter Strike Source, you also get the beta or testing client.

No its still in "closed" beta, though the players have given much more invites to invite others, so you'll just have to wait or get one to play
