    1. I got the tier 1 and I didn't send invites to any friends. I bought myself into the beta test tho, and played a ton of hours of it, if that makes any difference.

    1. Hah.
      So that might mean the "rare" is more "rare" than the mythical.
      I like the look better honestly, which is really all that matters for a paperweight.

      Delete
    2. 1 gift got precursor. I think what matters is how early in the beta you started playing.

      Delete
    3. Mythical is definitely a rarer quality than rare.

      Delete
    4. you said paperweight, it's a pixel it weighs nothing.

  13. It says not tradable or usable in crafting, meaning you CAN'T craft with it

    and purchasing the game grants tier 3

    2. 2011 beta tester too and traded countless of invites but only precursor :( the invite count is only 2.

      Delete
    3. You shouldn't have traded them. Only straight invites count.

      Delete
    4. That means that of all the invites you traded, only 2 of them actually activated and played the game, I believe.

      Delete
    5. you have to gift the copies to get the counts

      Delete

    ReplyDelete
  21. omg...why dun valve give us something that can use.....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Because they already are giving you the whole game for free? The beta test is an optional thing that they let you be a part of to help design the game. It's actually pretty annoying that you're whining about not getting an item when things are so easy to earn and trade for in dota that you could essentially never use their cash shop.

  25. Had 20+ invites.. invited 2 players who play everyday.. apart from that invited over 10 who are not so active dota 2 players.. received lowest grade bloodstone. Valve. Not suprised.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, you traded 20+ invites and in reality Valve let you be a part of an optional beta test. The item shows how many people you gifted the beta invite, not bargained with it.

  35. Stop complaining abt invites guys, The bloodstone rarity depends on in which year you started playing the game. I started early 2012, which is why i have Precursor (Mythical)
