The Longest DOTA 2 Professional Game

Longest DOTA 2 Game

Today, Game 2 of the best of 3 in Starladder Season 12 between Cloud 9 (C9) and SCARYFACEZZZ (SFZ) broke the record of the longest professional DOTA 2 game, clocking 3 hours and 20 minutes (200 minutes) beating the previous record of 125 minutes. So how did a professional match last that long? Well, since the recent patch, with the comeback mechanic, breaching high-ground has become more difficult, teams with an early lead cannot simply break the opposition’s base, add in one fed sniper and bristleback and you got yourself a 200 minute Defense of the Ancients, literally..

Cloud9 Vs. SFZ Bugs

The match lasted so long the map broke, although this did not have any impact on both teams’ performance animation bugs started appearing at around 150 minutes wherein debris of rocks started raining from the sky and some heroes engulfed in flames.

Don’t let those final item builds deceive you, multiple divine rapiers were purchased and some are just lying on the ground. C9, the aggressor for most part of the match, tried a variety of strategies to end the game from multiple Level 5 Dagons, creep blocking, refresher orbs but failed everytime.
