    Just a wave of "extra keys for the testers" a used one for myself, cause I have another computer the same computer at home and at work.
    Games on the account was about 90, and leave about 8. And today I found that this acc havent dota2 anymore. Likewise there is no warning on this occasion.
    The warning was in the ToS which you probably didn't read.

      Ok, Terms said that acc-sharing is not allowed. But i dont share this acc, just got another machine to use steam service.

      Let's say I want to move to another apartment and buy a new laptop. Maybe technically it somehow breaks the rules, but actually I remain the sole owner of the account.

          I play on 4 different computers and take a laptop whenever I travel - I can't even guess how many IPs I've played from.

          Just don't let anyone use your password and you will be fine.

            You could just make people invites expire within 48 hours of them realizing they have the beta, chances are if you have friends who wants to play dota2 they would have a steam account and giving it to them would be really simple+fast. If they dont invite people, its unlikely they'll invite anyone in the foreseeable future. Prevents selling and no need to 'reserve' space for them (server overload ,etc). Makes a win win situation, you need testers not 'potential' testers.
            FIX MM.

                ONLY!!! 10% leave. If everybody had 10% leave every single game would on average have a leaver... Around 1-2% is acceptable figures, still a bit high, but as most people don't have over 1k games that leaves a large error-margin.

                    I guess it took me ~48 hours until I got a response from my friends whether they wanted to have a key or not. But I can't imagine that Valve would do something as evil as this anyway.

                      Explaining that will defeat the purpose, wont it? As he said, do not share with others and you'll be fine.

                          I just want to know if i need to worry since i play Dota2 in 2 diferent PC's and 1 laptop at 3-4 diferent places, and sometime, even in the same day.
                          I have my PC at work and sometimes when i'm not too busy i have time to play one or two games, and I have my laptop where i play at a friends house or university, and for last i play at my house desktop.
                          And while I'm here, is there any way i can recover my Dota2 if i where wrongly punished? or I'll just have to such it and GTFO of dota2 beta?...

                                guys I'm pretty sure they check obvious stuff. Like if you shared it with someone on another country. Or it keeps oscilating between two computers that are in different cities and there's no way someone could travel that fast.
