There is more to it. Check out Loregasm by SirActionSlacks on YouTube.

He typically makes a new video for comics or special cosmetics. He'll cross reference a lot of information scattered across the game (items, hero lore, hero responses, etc.). There's also comics. Heroes will talk about specific events and what unfolded. SirActionSlacks brings the information together and offers insight into what may have happened.

Also, all your games are canon. They ancients use their powers to reset the battle over and over. There's supposed to be some kind of shakeup that will end it (but who knows when that will happen). Dota 1 is also canon. I forget the specifics, but Earthshaker is involved.
