Post your DOTA 2 Key Giveaways here

This topic is locked from further discussion.

I'm not sure how to feel about this or handle it. This thread has turned into the top result for "dota 2 giveaway" on Google. On one hand, it is leading to a lot of people signing up for the site who otherwise may never have heard of it. Conversely, most of these people are signing up only to ask for keys and will most likely never be seen again...what do you think is the best way to handle this topic and the key spam it was intended to combat?

Hi, I admit, I came here to ask for a key. But I'm definitely willing to stay to talk about games, seeing as I don't like r/gaming or 4chan. But the fact GB is the top result is pretty darn good.

My steam is: xRashid

email is: izashid29@gmail.com

thanks in advance.

Maybe make a steam group and link it in the original post? Im not very familiar with how steam handles "discussions" but i assume it will suffice for this. They should already have a steam account, so no need to make a GB account just to ask for a key.

Hey guys, I'd love a key if anyone has one available, I don't have many posts but I've been a member of the site for far longer than this thread so I didn't sign up here just for free stuff, only prefer lurking and reading to posting much...

Poyples is my steam ID if there's any available. Thanks.

I got 1 dota 2 key left to giveaway. Someone who wants it?

Steam profile: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198024080271/

#171 Posted by Forcen (2125 posts) -

If you link your profiles it is a lot easier to add you.

#172 Posted by WeXaztor (5 posts) -

ok to make this easier, add WeXaztor on steam if you want keys ^^

#173 Posted by WeXaztor (5 posts) -

or even find me on http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197960919323

#174 Posted by Brother_Peng (4 posts) -

@WeXaztor: i can not add you on steam since i don't have any game in steam. i can not use the friend function. can you send a key to my email? thx.. xlp1021@gmail.com

here is my steam profile: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198082540534/

#175 Edited by Forcen (2125 posts) -

I say don't give your beta keys to people that created their accounts today and don't own a single game like the one above just me. I'm guessing they are not in it to play Dota 2.

There should be a rule to link profiles only if you want a key, no email addresses to avoid hoarders.

EDIT: If you are a real person with that want to play dota 2 and have a steam account that is not obviously a sockpuppet account, send me a friend request here: http://steamcommunity.com/id/Forcen/ I have 11 invites.

#176 Posted by Mr_Skeleton (5195 posts) -

Yeah I think I will just give invites for people who didn't just sign up from now on...

#177 Posted by WeXaztor (5 posts) -

well i dont care really cause they throw out keys as if they were beads on mardi gras :P

if people want then so be it.

#178 Posted by DonutofDeath (3 posts) -

#179 Posted by DonutofDeath (3 posts) -

@Tylea002: Hey can i get one of those keys? my steam name is Donut153

#180 Posted by ScottishHobson (37 posts) -

Hey guys, I don't know if this counts as selling but we're doing a free giveaway to subscribers on our channel and we have stupid amount of copies to hand out so feel free to pop along. Sorry in advance if this is a naughty post, I don't want to get in trouble so I'll understand if it gets removed!

#181 Edited by Flavbot (142 posts) -

Want an invite? Add me on Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/id/Flavius/

I have 5 invites at the moment.

Note: I wont give invites to brand new Steam accounts, or to accounts who already have Dota 2 activated (the full game, the spectator client is fine).

Edit: 3 invites left. Grab them while they're hot!

#182 Posted by Forcen (2125 posts) -

@Flavbot: Can you see the difference in playing the spectator client? I thought they all showed up as Dota 2.

#183 Edited by Flavbot (142 posts) -

@Forcen: The spectator client will look something like this: http://i.imgur.com/risBl.jpg

Not sure if you can tell the difference without launching the client though.

#184 Posted by Winternet (8238 posts) -

I still have a good amount of gifts. AHHH DOTA2!!!

#185 Posted by aquacadet (259 posts) -

Someone made a bot to receive/give out copies of dota2. I donated a few of my copies to it, and figured we might want to toss it in the OP. Profile has instructions on using it.

http://steamcommunity.com/id/dota2bot

#186 Posted by newbie560 (3 posts) -

I already gave away some copies here earlier, but I still have about ten left. If you want one and don't want to deal with a bot, add Newbie560 to your Steam friends and drop me a message on the forum or on steam.

#187 Posted by RichieJohn (536 posts) -
#188 Edited by spotick (2 posts) -

I got 15 of them left PM me on STEAM or send a message if you want one

#189 Posted by bucifer (93 posts) -

Yo guys, got 9 invites! If you want one, just PM me with your email address!

#190 Posted by LordXantaur (2 posts) -

Hey. Can someone donate a beta key? Steam: LordXantaur. Thanks in advance.

#191 Posted by Aseinsha (34 posts) -

Got 15 keys to give away. Add me up on steam ElitistMagi_IR if you want one.

#192 Posted by MelficeVKM (161 posts) -

Got 8 invites, steam is MelficeVKM if you're looking one!

#193 Posted by IWantDota (2 posts) -

Can someone give me Dota 2 key so i can play it with my friends and maybe you:)

my steam is matupoiss12

#194 Posted by bucifer (93 posts) -

Still have 5 invites to give out. Just send me a PM with your email address.

#195 Posted by Prismatic (61 posts) -

I'm sitting on 16 invites at the moment. If you want one just link your steam profile and I'll send one.

#196 Posted by Forcen (2125 posts) -

@neoneoane: @prismatic: If you have Dota 2 invites to spare, link your profile and let them add you instead of adding people to prevent people from hoarding invites. People can't send you friend requests if they don't have a paid game on their account.

Lots of people are hoarding invites for some reason, using accounts created the same day they post., just look at post #174.

If you genuinely want a Dota 2 invite, you can add the Dota 2 bot and get one or buy one for 0.02€/$.

You can also add me if you seem like a regular steam user that owns games and didn't create the account yesterday.

If you seem to have played the game before or I don't feel like it i might not accept your request.

#197 Edited by bucifer (93 posts) -

@forcen: You might be right. If anyone wants a Dota 2 invite they can send me a friend request and a message on Steam. http://steamcommunity.com/id/neoneoane/

Anyways, this whole invite business it getting really tiresome. It was fun the first 3 times but now Valve's just spamming my profile with the stuff. They could at least give out home Dota2 exp or gear for all my hard work, but nope, I get nothing. This might be the greatest marketing ploy ever.

#198 Posted by Forcen (2125 posts) -

@neoneoane: You could give them all to the dota 2 bot or sell them for 0.02$ each.

#199 Posted by Bolt623 (2 posts) -

#200 Edited by Bitronix (49 posts) -

Pm me on here or send me a request & a message on steam.

Great idea for a thread!

Any idea if there's a GB group for DOTA 2 anywhere? Be good to play with some bombers!
