Former Valve Programmer Reveals Hilarious Daily Ritual of Dota 2 Development Team

Programmer Zoid Kirsch, who worked at Valve from 2008 to 2018, shared an amusing story on the social network X about the internal workings at Valve, particularly involving the Dota 2 development team.

Every day at around 3:00 PM, when the new build was ready, one of the engineers would blow a horn, signaling everyone to start matchmaking and play a game. This daily ritual was aimed at testing the latest changes, and it significantly sped up the development process.
