Valve Reveals Optional Monthly Subscription Service for Dota 2

Valve adds optional 'Plus' paid subscription to free-to-play Dota 2

Valve introduced Dota Plus to Dota 2 players Monday, and the community does not seem happy with the announcement. While the subscription is still brand new, features like the Plus Assistant already have some players questioning whether the feature borders on pay-to-win territory. Dota Plus will be replacing the Battles Pass from now on.

A new subscription service called Dota Plus has been recently revealed for the free to play PC game Dota 2, an evolution of the previously available Battle Pass granting several perks.

The firm says that this is an on-going service that will provide "progression and opportunities for improvement". There are two types of Battle Passes; one was all about the Majors, the other about The International. Long-time Dota 2 players looking to showcase their mastery of using certain heroes will appreciate the new hero-specific challenges, which arrives with three levels of difficulty. Leveling up will reward players with Shards, an in-game currency used to buy Plus-exclusive and legacy item sets, while ranking up in tier gives out phrases for the new Hero Chat Wheel, available to all Dota Plus members to use in allied and all chat.
