Portal:Game Mechanics

From Liquipedia Dota 2 Wiki
I wonder how this works...

Dota 2 has many underlying game mechanics that are not fully explained by the game itself. Knowledge of how the game works under-the-hood can help players understand the game better as a whole.

Most of Dota 2's mechanics are based on the WC3 engine and try to mimic its behavior. As a result, many of the interactions between different mechanics may feel unintuitive at first, following programming logic in their approach to behavior.
