Last time, we talked about why Dota 2 is not popular in Korea. Today, we will talk about the main reason why Dota 2 is losing players. Yes! Dota 2 has many players in China, the United States, and Russia.
But it is not enough for us to call it very addictive or popular. The games that are popular right now are Valorant, CSGO, League of Legends, and Roblox.
If you are an avid fan of Dota 2, then you can remember the old days. Dota 2 was very popular before since they are the very first MOBA game. It was not on steam yet. Dota can be played in the World of Warcraft launcher before.
But because there are lots of MOBA games rising and Dota was transferred to steam, which is called Dota 2, the number of players in Dota has decreased. Why is this? Why is Dota 2 losing players?
Why is Dota 2 losing players? The main reason why Dota 2 is losing players is because of the numerous MOBA games rising. There are new MOBA games that are more addictive when compared to Dota 2. Also, because of many changes Dota 2 made, the new players cannot comprehend how to play the game which is why they quit trying.
I love playing Dota before and the early days of Dota 2. But since they made lots of new changes in their game, I got bored because I don’t know what to do already. But still, I give props to Dota 2 because they are the ones who started this MOBA game style.
Today, we will talk about Dota 2 and the reason why they are losing popularity. Also, I will give you an honest answer if it is still worth playing and if you should still grind in Dota 2. So, if you are ready, let’s get it going.
Is Dota 2 Losing Popularity?
Even though Dota 2 is losing some players, they are still becoming popular and the players are increasing again! I think this is a lucky year for Dota 2 because the number of players is increasing.
Based on the live count of Dota 2, there was an increase in players last January 2022. From 500,000 players to 800,000. This is a good thing for Dota 2 because they can gain the money they lost before. Dota 2 is still number two on Steam.
In my personal opinion, the reason why Dota 2 is coming back is that players have already understood the new changes Dota 2 made. Also, I think Dota 2 made good marketing, which is why there are plenty of players coming back and newbies that are trying the game.
Is Dota 2 Still Worth Playing?
Yes! Dota 2 is still worth playing and I can say that it is still worth grinding. I grind in Dota 2 before but I switched to League of Legends for some reasons. You can still try to play Dota 2 since it’s free on Steam. It is not a paid game and it is free for all players around the world.
Why Is Dota 2 Not Popular In Korea?
The main reason why Dota 2 is not popular in Korea is because of bad marketing. Dota 2 used the Volvo approach when they advertised the game in Korea.
Also, Koreans have no taste in Dota 2. Koreans love to play League of Legends, Overwatch, CSGO, and Valorant. However, even though Dota 2 is not that popular in Korea, Dota 2 is still considered popular in Asia because of China and the Philippines.
The reason why Dota 2 is losing players is that numerous new MOBA games are rising and because of the changes they made. Dota 2 made the game more complicated and challenging. However, they are still lucky because the number of players is rising again and I think Dota 2 can be popular in the coming years.
