Dota 2 Fans Post Extreme Reactions to Dota Plus Announcement

No Caption Provided

"Dota Plus is an evolution of the Battle Pass", the announcement post read.

Dota Plus goes for $4 per month, with discounts for six and 12-month subscriptions.

Valve Corp, which develops Dota 2 and both owns and operates PC gaming service Steam, describes the Dota Plus scheme as a replacement for its previous tournament-oriented Battle Pass system. The Battle Passes were usually released during the Majors and The International tournaments, with specific starting and ending dates.

Dota Plus subscribers will also have access to a "Death Summary" screen providing "a second-by-second timeline of incoming damage, stuns, and other disabling effects" in real-time, and a "Lane Strategy" feature with team-wide suggestions for lane configurations.

And while a number of the new features offered to subscribers are also purely cosmetic, the plan includes access to an in-game digital advisor that gives paying players on-the-fly advice for character selection, item builds, and ability upgrades.

Dota Plus is a subscription service that features a variety of perks, some of which stem from what you'd expect to see in a Battle Pass. Whether or not you agree with that assessment is up to you, but for those who are interested, you can head on over to the Dota Plus website for more details about what it offers. Each level and tier grants Reward Shards and new Hero Chat Wheel responses, respectively.

Dota Plus can be bought within the in-game client for $3.99 per month. You'll earn shards, which is a new currency for unlocking rewards. The Dota Plus site that describes the Assistant's goal says that it'll suggest items that should be purchased, abilities that should be leveled based on what lane players are in and on the compositions of both teams, and will even suggest heroes for players to pick before the game based on what allies and enemies have already picked. These suggestions are based on data gathered from millions of recent games at each skill bracket, ensuring your builds stay current in the ever-evolving meta.
