    Me neither.

    Reminds me of the mistaken mention of Portal 2 being available when only the first Portal game is currently.

    Perhaps only certain users are getting access to the test client at the moment..? General availability looks like it's still a while off according to the Dota 2 site, for both the Mac and Linux clients.

    You are currently 13382 in the Launch Queue
    You will be notified by email when the game is ready for download.

    A decade of bittorrent, and some people still using queues...

    Its in my library under Dota 2 Test. I had to go to the dota2 store page and then click to add to my library or play or whatever it said, which then put me into a queue like the poster above me. I thought that it would be a long time before I was in but about 2 hours later I was accepted and Im downloading it now.

    It's probably not about the bandwidth, but about load of their servers during the actual game hosting.
