Why is Dota2 so Popular among Esports Games?

The ultimate mission of each team is to destroy the enemy base and “Ancient” while defending their own separated base against the other team. Each of the players controls and plays a character, which is known as “hero” in the Dota2. Each of the “heroes” has their own unique abilities for different purposes and advantages over each other. Throughout a match, Dota2 players have to gained experience points and items to equip their heroes with other advanced skills and armour and then defeat the enemy’s heroes in player vs player combat.
The heroes will be rewind under a countdown, back to each base after being defeated. The higher the level of the heroes, the longer the countdown would be for a hero to return to the game. And each player that defeated enemy’s heroes contribute a score to own team. A team wins the Dota2 match by being the first to managed to destroy the large structure located within the base, known as “Ancient”.
