Introducing the Dota Database

This includes details like spell and ability behaviors, which shops you can purchase an in game item, hero level progressions, cosmetic item sets, and even pro player autographs. The information for these specifics comes directly from the game files and the Valve provided Dota 2 web APIs.

Live League Game Listing

This page will give you a paged listing of all currently live league games. Some games will display blank data when still in the hero picks/bans phase.

Click in to the listing to see all the live updated details for the match.
