MOBA Monday: Let’s Play Dota 2 Halloween Edition (Give us DIRETIDE!)

MOBA Monday is a weekly showcase of how to perform, eh, let’s go with adequately – we hope – in a multiplayer online battle arena. The streaming squad features the hottest, upcoming or most interesting titles of their and the communities fancy for a few rounds of PvP shenanigans in our weekly Twitch channel staple.

This is an extra special MOBA Monday as today is Halloween! Many years ago, Valve released an amazing event called Diretide for Dota 2. In this event, players picked heroes to collect candy with and fight Roshan as a team (or not). It was really interesting to see who could come up with the best team composition and to see if your team could beat Roshan. You might be asking why I would bring up such a phenomenal event that Valve created all those years ago? Well, it’s to acknowledge our collective pain of having yet another year pass us by and still not getting another Diretide. It’s been four years and I’m still waiting for the next Diretide. In case you don’t believe how seriously cool this event was, people actually created petitions to get another Diretide. One was appropriately named  “༼ つ ◕_◕つ GIVE DIRETIDE”.

So, to ease the pain, I’ll be trying out Valve’s  “replacement” Diretide quest called “Twin Forks” available to owners of the Fall Battle Pass. There are six heroes that you need to play as and each comes with two objectives that you need to complete in order to receive the special edition Halloween ward. I will attempt those quests in this week’s MOBA Monday! It’s no Diretide, but I’ll give it a go!

Come join me on Twitch at 7:30PM to play some Dota 2! I’ll be in costume so you’ll have to stop by to see who I decided to be this year for Halloween!
