Three billion Dota 2 game lobbies have been created. The SEA region played the milestone game in a 86 kill, 44:04-minute game!

According to DOTABUFF, the 3 billionth game of Dota 2 featured inceptioNNN (a Pudge, Invoker and Anti-Mage main) on The Radiant and Master Shake (a Doom, Spectre and Troll Warlord main) on The Dire.

Accompanied by eight anonymous players, these unsuspecting players entered their SEA showdown looking for blood. Both named players played sub-50 percent win-rate heroes, with inceptioNNN on Templar Assassin and Master Shake on Tusk, but it was inceptioNNN's TA that earned the most kills in the game and ultimately, a victory for The Radiant.

The oldest game in the DOTABUFF history was Match 2 on Dec. 9, 2010 in an unknown region, with The Dire bludgeoning their opponents in a 56-25 kill game that lasted 50 minutes. In that game, the MVP was AlexanderM on Shadow Shaman, racking up 72 denies.
