Arrow How to get Dota 2 for Free

Hello there fellow Steam Forums Users,

As you may have read from the title, I'm going to tell you how to get Dota 2 for Free, from Steam.

Basically all you have to do is go on the Dota 2 Steam Store page and look under the heading of "Join The Game". Look for the hyperlink called "Dota 2 Survey" and click on it.

Take the Steam Survey and that's it. All you have to do now is wait until VALVe sends you a code. Simple.

Best regards,
VK

Thx I did the survey, it doesn't ask for an email or anything. Would they contact directly through steam?

Most likely use the email associated with the Steam account.

Yes, I'm guessing so.

So the thread title should be.

"How to get Dota 2 for Free, if you're lucky, and this survery doesn't have anything to do with getting an invite, cross your fingers!"

First we will gather information about your machine. This data is not anonymous and will be shared with the author of this survey.
WTF is that supposed to mean? Every survey I've ever taken was said to be anonymous, but this is scaring me.

And it doesn't even tell me what kind of personal information it plans on gathering in the process.

It means they will know what kind of hardware you have. Which is different than the regular hardware survey, where they just check what kind of hardware is out there, but not who has it.

They are most likely doing it because they are trying to get as many different hardware configurations as possible to test the game on, to make sure there aren't any problems.

Wouldn't put my hand into the fire, but I'm pretty sure they aren't collecting any personal data other than your hardware (I wouldn't even call that info 'personal').

I applied to beta the first day they gave the chance, and did hardware survey too the first day it was possible.

Still no invite for me.
