What is R1v1r Runes
Even to Dota 2 veterans, Red Bull R1v1r Runes is a whole new beast that will test your duelling finesse and split-second decision-making abilities. Red Bull R1v1r Runes is a 1-on-1 modification for Dota 2. This mode is played only in the middle lane of a regular Dota 2 map with several adjustments to the game mechanics that make this a far more exciting and intense experience for individual gamers. This also means matches are quicker, pushing competitors’ skills and reflexes to the limit.
Choose the hero you can dominate with to gain the upper hand and turn the tide in your favour within seconds. The win conditions are simple: the player to slay their opponent thrice or eliminate the T1 tower achieves victory in this multi-city competition that will culminate in a National Final this November.
