The game DOTA 2, one of the top games in the world, is a free to play multiplayer online battle arena video game. The game was developed and published by the Valve Corporation. The game DOTA 2 has one of the highest gross income in the world of esports. A normal game can be played by a maximum of ten players. Five players on each team, the dire and the radiant, will compete with each other to destroy the ancient of the enemy team located at the ends of map. Each player controls one of the playable characters in the game, where it has a specific role to fill in, it may be a support or a carry.

A red square emblem that appears right at the start of the game is its logo, the DOTA 2 emblem.  But what does this logo of the game stand for? Does it has a specific deeper meaning about it? Well let us evaluate with the player’s perspective. As you play and progress in the game, you can notice that there is a minimap at the lower left corner of the screen and it totally looks a lot like the DOTA 2 logo that you saw from the beginning of the game. Using the minimap during the game is very convenient, helpful and useful  as you can help your teammates if they are ganked, know where your enemies are and prevent being killed, plan a gank against an enemy hero, know what runes you might get along the river, know the life status of your own towers and also with the enemy towers and even a lot more things that helps you win the game. The whole red square logo might represent the whole minimap of the game DOTA 2.

The three hollow lines found inside of the game logo might represent the following; the small hollow line at the top right of the logo is the dire ancient, the middle hollow line of the logo would be the river which divides the map into two parts and the small hollow line in the bottom left of the logo is the radiant ancient. As I have researched, the emblem of the game looks a lot similar to the first letter of the Semitic abjads called “aleph”. The symbol is drawn exactly just like the logo of the game DOTA 2, where it has three lines on it. One long line at the middle and two small lines on each corner, one at the upper right and the other one is at the bottom left.

But the players, professional or non professional, do not really know the real meaning of the logo as the creators, Valve and Icefrog, did not said a word about what is the real meaning behind the logo of the game DOTA 2. It remains mysterious but the players can just settle to the minimap theory since the logo does not affect how they play or how they win.
