In the Woods... It Awakens.
The slivers of the Mad Moon hang low in the night sky. From spring comes summer, from summer comes fall; the shift of the seasons march onward, droned out by the unceasing clash of Radiant and Dire. Long forgotten are the brief moments in which we stopped to turn our attention towards the woods. Where is the season of Diretide? We howled at the woods, begging it to bring forth its candy-mad beast. But nothing came. And we moved on.
But now the trees shake. The taffy in our bowls jostles as the ground shakes under foot. Could it be?
Brace yourself for a special Dota 2 event. Roshan stomps from his cave, lumbering down the river, hungry for candy and blood. Round after round of an an all-new frenetic, five-on-five game-mode awaits. Lo, the season returns. It’s Diretide.
Take Part in the Foultivities
The woods tremble as the seasonal game mode Diretide returns! Gather your team and harvest your sweets in a best-of-five showdown, but be warned of the beast, for Roshan's craving for Greevil Taffy has only intensified.
Collect Taffy
The clock is ticking and your team's stash awaits! Cut down those creeps and secure their taffy. Harvest with haste!
Fill Your Bucket
Heap piles of taffy into your trove but beware your enemy's thievery and tricks. Driven by greed, they'll stop at nothing to rob you blind!
Satiate the Beast
Roshan's hunger is not to be ignored. Only the taffy in your pocket and your propensity to part with it will save you from a quick death.
Rewards Most Sweet
Throughout the Diretide season players can earn Diretide Points by playing both regular Dota 2 matches, and the Diretide game mode. Every 100 points will earn you one of Roshan's Rewards.
