Yes.

Type 'steam://takesurvey/1/' into steam chat and click it if the link doesn't work. Anyone can do it, too.

if link isn't working, update your steam client.

Of note:

One thing everyone will tell you is that Dota is a game that’s more fun with friends. Because of that, we wanted to make sure everyone we invited could bring a couple of friends – so everyone who receives Dota 2 will be given two extra copies that they can hand out to whomever they’d like

and

The extra data the survey provides will allow us to ensure we invite a wide spread of players and hardware.

So your outdated graphics card might be a good thing ;)

Older hardware might give you a better chance at getting early access, they are looking to test the game on as many different setups as possible...

You can also just type it into your browser, fyi, but whatever works since both roads lead to the same destination obviously

I just filled it in, I didn't realise there would be a fucking aptitude test, I have never played Dota before, so my answer was 0 to everything.

I've played like 3 DoTA matches, but 700 LoL matches, and now I don't know what to respond!
