    I just don't know what I'm doing wrong.

    All I did was not select it during initial dota2 setup, and I can't get anything other than a purchase button.

    Maybe I'm not understanding this correctly. I would like to build a custom map (game) that runs on DotA, do I need Dota 2 Alpha tools to build a custom map? If not, what software do I specifically need?

    Alright, my bad I was looking at the item creator instead of scrolling down to the bottom.
