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 don't think I've ever hit 90 minutes. I got just over 70 minutes once and I felt mentally worn out by the end.

There was a TI3 West Qualifier match that went on for 1h:45m~. It was extra absurd because there were at least 2 divine rapiers in the match.

After about the hour mark I just stop giving a sh*t. I've had a game that lasted 74.. I forget exactly. Usually by that time one team just wants to give up.

Fairly certain I've had one go between 80 and 90.

About 90 min, no one was happy by the end of that game.

Around 75 min. Both tier 4's were down on both teams and we just spent like 15 min scared to initiate. Intense.

For me just over an hour (Over 70 games in) for me luckily

There was a recent LGD game that featured a farmed Anti-Mage that lasted for like 7 days

73min I think?

These days games seem short to me than the old DotA where 70+ was the norm for me. N

I honestly couldn't tell you. There's been several games that I've played for a long period of time, but cannot even calculate the hours!

Longest is definitely at least an hour and half upwards. At that point it's either both teams are evenly matched and want to win badly or both teams are dicking around.

I hope that I get good enough at this game to see a long match at least once. I will be playing it for the first time tonight. God help me.

It was a bot game.

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.
