[DOTA 2] Introducing Live Player Activity Map
If there is one game any PC gamer in the world would know of and has played before, that would probably be DOTA 2. DOTA, since its inception as a Warcraft in-map game created by IceFrog, has been growing tremendously and is now indisputably one of the most well-known and popularly-played online game in the world.
To celebrate the continuously demanding reception to enter (still in beta) DOTA 2, Valve has set up a dedicated page to live-track the traffic and players online to give an overview of the number of live games played at any current moment.
As seen in the picture above, the popularity and current player activity is measured in its size and frequencies of orange heat spots, which at the time i'm posting this is particularly heavy in the Europe and South East Asia.
Keep in mind that DOTA 2 is in beta mode so there still is a whole pool of players waiting to enter. And when DOTA 2 officially opens up to everyone and anyone in the public, then THAT will be interesting to see...
