i downloaded 4,3gb for spectating......nice trolling.

You need a key to play. Either get a key or pay £22 or equivalent on Steam. This is the spectator client. "DotA 2 Test" is the actual game.

Be patient :)))))

Actually...Dota 2 Test is not the actual game...it´s a test version..but if it appears in your library you got the full Dota 2.

*Facepalm* If you check on dota 2 blog, valve announced spectator dota client for international 2. You can watch games but can't play. It's because dota 2 is not officially out yet, and you need invitation key to play the beta.

I hope that Dota 2 is gonna be "free-to-play".

Had this aswell guys, bought a game invite:P

@Ulysses : DotA 2 will be free-to-play on launch.

In the meantime, you can buy a key for $30 USD or take the survey and wait for an invite. We really ought to have a sticky about that, there are at least one or two "why can't I play" threads daily.

the thing is that when i search in the shop for dota2 steam says"you already have the game" and a "now play" button is on the right side....this is sh..

I've take the Dota 2 survey months ago and now i have this Dota 2 test in my library.
Q: this Dota 2 Test is the full game?
Annatar Oct 2, 2012 @ 4:45am 
You don´t need to download Dota 2 Test...but if it is in your library, Dota 2 itself should be the full game and you should be able to play it.

I don't have Dota 2 Test but I downloaded the game and everything. Still have Spectate Mode, so is it true that i just have to wait?
