What Is D In DOTA 2?

D in DOTA 2 means def or defend.


When you hear a teammate say D out of nowhere, he or she is referring to a fellow teammate or teammates to defend a specific tower or even another hero who is on the verge of dying in the game.

But most of the time it refers to defending a tower or the base which is being attacked by the enemy team heroes or creeps.

So now whenever you hear or read D during a game, you already know that you must defend something very valuable to your team. If no one may respond to that, then it may cost you the game.
