From Dota 2 Wiki
Diretide is an annual Dota 2 event starting October 30th.
 Game Mode
There are 3 stages to Diretide, each lasting 10 minutes.
 Candy Chaos
- Compete against the enemy team in collecting the most candy.
- Collect candy from Roshlings and deposit it in your candy bucket.
- Go on a raid and steal the enemy's candy from their bucket.
- After 20 minutes (after the 2nd stage), the team with the most candy wins!
 The Trickster Awakens
- All this ruckus has awoken Roshan from his slumber.
- He will target a random hero, alternating between teams, and bully them for candy.
- Keeping a piece of candy in your inventory is recommended as failure to feed Roshan will result in death.
 Sugar Rush
- After 20 minutes Roshan will be stuffed and you will be left candyless.
- You must team up with the enemy and go after Roshan to reclaim your candy.
- Defeating Roshan will reward you with items and delicious candy.
- The fastest Roshan slayers will be immortalized in the Diretide Hall of Fame!
