Huh...I got it in less than a week after I got into the queue; around 4 days, I think.

They probably prioritize people who has many games in their Steam library. =b

Yeah, no one can download. That's why I see almost 500k players online sometimes.

I'm pretty sure priorities go towards the people who are spending money in the game.

The game is free but rakes in a ton of money.

Heh, I doubt it.
The last time I played DotA was when it was still a WC3 FT custom map. =b
Didn't play the Beta, and I downloaded the game just to view the live matches on The International.

My DotA-playing days have gone long past, but still interested in watching quality matches.
The last time I played it was before they added Puck in the 'original' DotA.

Of course you're not the only one, otherwise there wouldn't be a queue.
He was just pointing out your generalization about people not being able to download wasn't exactly right.

Like I said, Valve probably prioritize long-time Steam users and/or those who had bought many games on Steam.
If you're new to Steam (e.g. installing Steam just to play Dota 2), then expect to be a low priority on the queue.
Moreover, The International has already gone to its 3rd iteration, and there were many, MANY Beta invites being thrown around in forums.
