In an attempt to reduce the number of repetitive & spammy Dota 2 key giveaway topics, from this point on all new key giveaways must be posted here. If you are giving keys away, please keep your posts updated and edit them when you are out of keys so users have an idea of what is available.

Any new giveaways posted anywhere else other than in this topic will be deleted.

note: Selling keys is not permitted.

Edit: I'm not giving out any more keys. 99% of the people who requested one are 1-or-2-post users who have contributed nothing to Giant Bomb and who spam me on Steam. So, no.

I've got a few left. Shoot me a PM with your Steam account name or associated email address. GB users with less than 100 posts will not be considered.

@MB: Thanks for the official thread, sir!

With all the keys being given away, I'm starting to question why they're using keys at all.

PM me if u want a key, I got a lot of keys but I'm only gonna give out a few. Priority goes to senior members or experienced dota 1 players.

side note, if you are decent at dota 2 and not too bad mannered add me on steam.

I think they're basically ready to "release" (as much as you release a free-to-play game), but I think they're doing this "waves of keys" thing because it allows them to gradually add more players, a few thousand at a time. I assume the end goal is to avoid a Diablo 3 like launch day fuckup of several million people all jumping on at one time and causing all kinds of network problems. Traditional launch days of online games require WAY more servers than you're ever going to need about 72 hours after launch, so they seem to be just dodging that entirely by giving it this ridiculously protracted soft launch.

@MB: If you want to make one master thread for giving away these keys, is it going to get stickied? If not, I'd imagine it will fall to the 2nd or 3rd page of the forums after a day or two and die off, like every other DOTA 2 key thread.

@BisonHero: It's pinned to the DOTA 2 forum only, I think that should be fine for now. If it doesn't work I'll consider pinning it to all boards for awhile.

I got 8 to giveaway and feel sorry for the people that payed around 20euros. Although I saw, you get some holiday items with your game but not sure if thats worth the 20.

@Tylea002: hey there, just wondering about getting a key possibly! Was on the fence about buying it when the steam sale was up, but new job has limited my disposable income quite a bit.

I have six five keys to give away. Don't PM me for them, I hate PMs. @ reply me on this thread. One rule: no creating accounts just for a key or two.

This is ridiculous; people who already ahve the game or are just making an account for a free key probably shouldn't be getting one. Basically a ton of these people say they're 'asking for a friend' then add the key to the bunch they already have so they can try and trade them for something else. 
 
That being said, I still have two left and I'm giving them to anyone who actually plans to use it.

I got seven keys, if you want one reply to this with a link to your steam profile without Dota 2 on it.

EDIT: I just got a friend request on steam from someone with just four games on their list, and a account created today. Dont send me friendrequests, link your profile here.

I got 4 keys, whatever their plan is, they have been spamming these keys out so often they may as well go full release. You can barely get rid of these things judging by how many have already been announced in this thread.

Saying that send me a PM with your Steam ID and il add you to send it over (pending you dont have Dota 2 and have 15 forum posts, 15 is not that hard now is it?)

UPDATE: 1 key is now gone, 1 is reserved for 2 days. 2 left

I just got a friend request from someone that just own the crysis games, and created their Steam account TODAY. I didn't even link my profile here.

Don't let people bypass this thread, don't get fooled people.
