    I'm curious since I don't know much about the DotA 2, so this is my second thread ever made on these forums.

    My question this time is, does DotA 2 have an offline mode, equipped with A.I.s so we can train by ourselves if we don't have an internet connection, etc ?

    There are bots available right now, although you still have to be connected to the Internet. Apparently there is going to be a LAN-mode at some point, though, so I´m guessing the option to play with bots offline seems like a logical step.

    Right. I missread question, you can't play DotA 2 if steam is in offline mode.

    Oh, this is still good news. At least there are bots for me to train with. Hearing about DotA 2 is not playable while steam is in offline mode is sad, but I hope they add support for it soon. :)

    no-no-no, you misunderstood the answer if you are connected to steam you can play, you can be in online, away, busy or offline mode(in friend list) it doesn't matter, until the steam and dota servers are up you can play everything(matchmaking, practice etc.)

    So that means I can't play without an internet connection?

    Probably in the future because there will be LAN mode but right now you can't because you need to connect to Steam before you can play.

    Actually playing offline bots now in Beta isn't actually offline because U still need to be connected to internet to actually play with them or continue playing with them when you have some sort of disconnection :)

    Seeing the many greyed out buttons at the side bar in the Play tab, a true offline bot match should be available in the future.

    Most probably yes since is a Valve game. And LAN is going to implement soon, so offline mode could be available in the future.

    You can access single player game vs bots via console since the last patch. Just type: Map Dota 2... and you are ready to go. Dunno about settings of that just starts as AP and i have no idea about difficulty of bots.
