Dota 2 has released a new event called Diretide. It is a custom game where players compete in a best of 5 rounds match. In each round players need to collect more candies than their opponent in order to win that round. First team to win 3 rounds wins the match. Winning a match rewards the players with some points. For every 100 points the player earns, he gets one of the Roshan’s rewards. There are 75 items in the reward pool that the player can earn.

Out of 75, 74 rewards are not marketable on steam.
