Whats makes DOTA 2 so addictive?

For me personally, I find Dota to be extremely addictive. As a college student I wake up in the morning, first thing I do is find myself daydreaming of matches that aren't even going on, slipping in and out of reality and the imaginary Dota game that seems oh so real.

Up until my Dota days, I played other very enjoyable games (most notably Age of empires 3), and yet none could captivate me quite like Dota has. So what is it? Why is it so addictive?

This isn’t an easy game to play.

It’s easy to pick up and play but it is very difficult to get good at. That is where the game gets addicting. You want to keep winning and to do that you need to learn everyone. And to learn everyone and everything you need to keep playing.

Each game of Dota takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour so it’s an investment each game. No matter how good or bad you’re doing, you cannot leave the game since it will spoil the game for the 9 others.

I think the whole Team spirit thing is what keeps me pegging :)

For me, what makes it addictive is that matchmaking gives me 4 monkeys 99% of games in my team so after a loss or two i get "addicted" to make up for these losses and play until i get a winstreak going.
