Dota 2 Game Length

Games vary in length and are influenced by factors such as:

Game mode: Some modes, like Turbo mode, are designed to be faster than regular Dota 2 matches.

Skill level of players: In higher skill brackets, players tend to be more efficient and games may be shorter.

Course of the game: If one team snowballs an early lead, the game may end quicker. Conversely, very close games can drag on for longer.
