I just finished playing a 90 minute game. My eyes are bloodshot. My hands are shaking, and I don't think I'll be able to sleep for hours.
I had a game back in the War 3 days that lasted over two hours.
Both teams had Mega Creeps by the end and we couldn't push out for fear of a single hero breaking in and killing the throne. Eventually someone on our end just rushed to the other side of the map and throne-dove through their heroes until it was finally over. I believe it took two or three dives before we finally won.
Longest DOTA 2 match was probably around an hour fifteen. I'd imagine the game has been balance to a point now that it can't go over 2 hours anymore without people trying to drag it on intentionally.
Bout 80 minutes. We were a 5 stack of Giant Bomb duders. They had only one carry, but a really strong early game and started pushing our towers pretty early. We had no map control and they were at our rax, but they blew a black hole on nothing and already had epicenter on cooldown. So we won a pretty close teamfight with a few buybacks, and since I was Storm, I took the opportunity to farm as quick as possible. I think I was the most farmed hero in the game or about on par with TA (their only carry). I got a Bloodstone and Linken's and started getting easy pick offs when they tried to split push our lanes in. This bought us more space and we started slowly getting back into the match. Our PL and OD started getting good farm, so this match was looking up. Eventually we get a good teamfight and take their mid rax (the first of the game), but are forced back afterwards.
At this point, I'm loaded and pretty much six slotted. But having watched way too much Daily Dota, I decide to go for a Rapier. We were joking about getting one all game and everyone was really chill so I decided, what the hell? But in the ensuing team fight to take their throne, I get too focused on right-clicking and die to chain disables. But in a stroke of luck, Enigma is the one who picks up the Rapier. We're all laughing about when Enigma commits suicide by bloodstone. But hilariously, their Lion picks it up instead of TA. We could now take it slow and win the game of attrition. But I start remembering Crispy in all those games, and decide to just buy another Rapier. Well I once again become focused on right clicks and die again. Since I have so many bloodstone charges, I ball back and pick it up again, but by then it was too late. We totally snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
