It’s finally here. Our Top 10 Best Dota 2 Streams.
With this top ten list, I wanted to take a different approach. With the other top ten streaming lists here on btnsmash it would just be me doing the research and analysis for each stream. While I greatly enjoy doing it, taking that approach is both time-consuming and exhausting by the time I was done.
To help make this list a little easier on myself. I asked the Dota 2 Reddit community to share with me their favorite streamers. Doing so not only saved me time on research but it ultimately allowed me to work with the Dota 2 community to get an idea on who you’re actually watching.
So a thank you to the Dota 2 Reddit community and a huge thanks to those that contributed.

Placing SingSing at #1 was a no brainer, especially after seeing some of the replies that SingSing received on the Dota 2 Reddit post.
SingSing is hands down the fan favorite when it comes to Dota 2 streams. This streamer offers a unique personality with his humor and laid back attitude when it comes to Dota 2. With these traits, it makes it possible for just about anyone to enjoy SingSing’s stream. I might also add that SingSing just knows how to straight up play the game. Because of this, SingSing has no issues coming up with rare or totally new on the spot strategies or jukes.
