It turns out that not everything about 2020 is terrible after all! If you’re a Dota 2 fan who has been yearning for the return of the Halloween-themed game mode, Diretide, your prayers have been answered! Just in time for Halloween tomorrow (to be honest, we thought it was going to be on Valve Time), the update brings a new and revamped Diretide game mode but most importantly – loads of hats. Many, many hats!
2020’s version of Diretide pits two teams of 5 against each other in a fight to collect the most taffy – a resource that is dropped from creeps, and enemy heroes when you kill them. There will be 5 rounds of gameplay, and by the end of it, the team with the most taffy are considered the winners. Seems simple and fun enough, we can’t wait to try it out!
With each victory or loss, players will earn Diretide Points, and for every 100 Diretide Points, players receive a random reward which can be a cosmetic, MMR double down token, a spray, chat wheel sound, or emoticon! Fortunately for people who aren’t fans of custom game modes – you can also earn Diretide Points through regular games.
