    Here are some useful links for the Dota2 community - feel free to suggest your own and if they get majority support or I think they're good I'll add them. I might categorize these abit more later. These are all the ones I can think of off the top of my head:

    Official/Dev

    Official Dota2 Blog - Valve's blog posts on Dota2 are here and likely soon they'll also be putting their coverage of the International 2 through here.

    Dota2 Dev Forums - If you want to be on the cutting edge of finding out stuff the dev forums is usually a good place to start, especially if they go back to a test/release schedule. Some devs post at a reasonable rate here too.

    PlayDotA - Has handy info on unreleased heroes, and includes the official forums for the first game, hero guides and for balance for both games.

    Competitive Dota

    JoinDota - Even if you're not a fan of Tobi, this is an improving and pretty decent site to see what competitive games are on

    ESFI's competitive hero tier list I was abit iffy about putting this on, but I do enjoy reading this light look at competitive trends every month or so. They also usually do a team tier list.

    DotA Academy somewhat similar to the Dota2 stats website, but for competitive matches.

    Other Dota

    Dota2 Wiki - Looks like this is the current popular wiki, it has alot of useful information already - my favourite is going to heroes and checking out the voice responses.

    Dota2 Stats - For the stats whores among us. Look up a player, look up yourself, see how certain heroes are trending afew days after they release or where a hero winrate goes after a counter is released etc. Can slow down your computer abit on first load of the DB if its not a newer one if you search for players.

    Dota2 Reddit Community - I'm not a fan of reddit in alot of ways, there is too much circlejerk, but this subreddit is still at this point a pretty good aggregator of news/curiosities

    DotaCinema YouTube Page - Weekly top tens, top ten fails, some other top tens, hero overviews when they come out, occasional guides, somewhat endorsed by Valve. Not a bad channel.

    Cyborgmatt's Blog - Want to see what the latest patch added in full including the back end? Find it here.

    Dotaholic - A handy site with some nice templates and a useful set of info in its database, including items in the client that might not be available for purchase yet and some good stats.

    Dotafire - Another place to check out guides for Dota2 (Some of PlayDotAs can be pretty outdated).

    I really don't know if there is a site with everything laid out nicely like that. I always just thought you gained that kind of knowledge from reading forums and sharing with others :/

    dota cinema (youtube) fails for those who love dota. I don't even play anymore and still find it entertaining to watch their content.
