Dota 2 Wiki

Fantasy League settings

Fantasy Dota is a feature that lets players create their own team of professional players within a Fantasy League, and compete with other players in the league based on points earned by their team. Points are earned whenever a professional player participates in any Tournament match. It is similar to Fantasy Baseball.

Various in-game rewards can be earned by participating in Fantasy Dota. Dota Plus members may earn shards by participating in Fantasy Dota for the Dota Pro Circuit.

General Information[]

  • Players can create one Fantasy League each after purchasing a ticket.
  • Players who have a ticket can join any number of leagues.
  • Each league can hold up to 10 members, therefore 10 teams.
  • After a league is created, players can invite friends for a timed Live Draft to select professional players for their Fantasy Teams.
    • Each professional player can only be drafted by one person.
    • Players who miss the drafting time will have randomly selected team members.
    • Members who miss the Live Draft will have random players picked by the system.
    • Players who have been kicked out of a league will have their Fantasy Season ticket refunded.
  • The system will automatically match teams in the same league against each other every week.
  • The team with the most points at the end of the week (Sunday at midnight) wins that round.
  • Settings, including scoring can be customized by the league commissioner (the player who created the league).
  • Valve provides an official web interface for tracking Fantasy statistics.



Team roster and scores

  • Each team can have up to 8 players.
  • Rosters can be changed once per day.
    • Team members are locked for the day once that individual has started scoring.


  • Professional players are categorized into Core and Support roles.
    • Core: Mid-lane, off-lane, or carry players.
    • Support: Support players.
  • Roles do not affect scoring.
  • Each Fantasy Team must include the following combination of professional players by their roles:
Active Roster Bench
  • 2 Core
  • 2 Support

Free Agents[]

  • Teams can drop a professional player from its roster and pick up another player that is not owned by any other team (a "free agent").
  • These requests are processed nightly.
  • Only one request can be active at a time.
  • If multiple teams attempt to pick up the same player, priority is given to the team with the worst record.
  • Player trading is not currently supported.


Fantasy points

An example of a fantasy points scorechart.

Each professional player will earn a score based on their in-game performance. After each match, a team's score is the total sum of all its 5 active members.

  • In a best-of-three series, each player earns points only for their highest-scoring games.
  • Winning or losing does not affect a player's score.
  • Stand-ins will not earn any points.
  • Matches played in Premium and Professional tournaments count towards players' scores.
  • By default, Premium tournaments count for 100% points and Professional Tournaments count for 25% points.
