    The new grid is annoying because if you click on a hero profile it defaults back to the new interface. I'm not a fan, should be an option in settings

    seems steam wallet is the only way at the moment. I had to add $5 to buy a key just to try it out. Now to decide if I hold onto my remaining 2.51 for another chest or buy something cheap!

    You can actually buy Beta invites for 39.99 on the store, not sure exactly how they work but if you know a trusted person who has Dota2 you could just give them the cash to get it for you.

    I think I've figured it out, finally. The team you are not on get hats. You get boxes.

    So what exactly are these items?

    Visual customizations for each 'hero'?

    Basically, yes.

    DOTA2 heroes you can dress up piece by piece unlike LOL where you have to have the whole outfit/skin.

    DOTA store is still down. So I just pay $ for the key through my roommate who plays? (he can buy it) I wish I could just buy $30 in store credits to spend on in game items and get a key from that.

    Mmm, that invite is pretty tempting. Still, $40 is kind of a steep investment; I don't really have any interest in the items. I'd much rather pay $20 for an invite alone than $40 for a bunch of crap I don't want.

    That, or I'd rather the $40 include some battle point boosters or those "give goodies to everyone else in the game" things.

    Agreed, but I'll wait myself for an invite from whoever whenever, or I'll wait until the game comes out.

    This. I know they've obviously made some money off selling that key, but I think the game will be out in Q3/Q4 sometime

    I loved how they announced DotA 2 as a free game and first thing you when you open the store is a "access to beta test" for U$ 40.

    I loved the courier skins and Furion beards. I might buy some skins in a near future.

    Valve is giving out free items to random viewers of DotATV right now. If you have someone in the game on your friends list, you can get in before DotATV opens (6 minutes into the game), and you'll get even more stuff. I was given five items just because I got in during the picks.

    Maybe that's why keys are so rare now.
