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!
Where are all the altruistic mmo champion people with extra keys?
Store is down (currently) and the official forums as linked by steampower which has the giveaways is having 504 gateway errors. :|
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 $40 include some battle point boosters or those "give goodies to everyone else in the game" things.
I loved how they announced DotA 2 as a free game and first thing you when you open the store is a "access to beta test" for U$ 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.
