The game client features automated highlights and a timeline displaying various key actions such as Roshan kills, barracks destroyed, kill streaks and more. Players can easily share, edit and post their prized moments with just a few clicks.

Plays.TV is already a leading platform used by at least 12 million gamers in the community. Now, their technology has been integrated with Valve – allowing for Dota 2 players of all skill levels to create highlights and share their accomplishments.
The game platform has already been in use for CS:GO and League of Legends.
Plays.TV will allow users to spend less time editing videos for highlights. The easy user interface includes bookmarked actions on a timeline to make sharing moments with the community becomes easy and quick.
Plays.tv’s Automated Highlights is one of the primary reasons we’re the most popular gameplay capture tool for League of Legends and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, so we’re excited to bring the same functionality to Dota 2. Excitement for Dota 2 is heating up as we get closer to The International in August, so this integration is timely and will give the community more content to share and get excited about.
