Match # 5000000001 took place on a Peruvian server in Turbo mode.

Match counting has been going on since 2010. Dota 2 players "celebrated" the previous anniversaries in 2018, 2017, 2015 and 2014:

  • five billionth match - September 1, 2019;
  • four billionth match - July 11, 2018;
  • three billionth match - February 15, 2017;
  • two billionth match - December 13, 2015;
  • billionth match - November 2, 2014.

It took a little over a year to play the last billion matches for Dota 2 fans. More time has passed between 3 billion and 4 billion matches: one year and five months. The players moved from two to three billionth mark in fourteen months, and they managed to get even faster from billion to two billion: in thirteen and a half months. Can you count your amount of Dota 2 matches?
