Dota Plus Subscription Service Revealed For Dota 2

Dota Plus Subscription Service Revealed For Dota 2

Valve have introduced a new monthly subscription service for Dota 2. Dota Plus will be available now for $3.99 per month. There is a six percent and 12 percent discount if the subscription is purchased in bulk for six and 12 months respectively.

Valve's DotA 2 is completely free to play where players get to enjoy all of the game's features without having to shell out a single cent. Valve is obviously not a charity organization which means that they still need to make money, and this is done by selling in-game items such as skins which in no way affects the gameplay.


In an announcement this afternoon, Valve said that the new service "is an evolution of the Battle Pass", which previously came in two forms - one for the majors, and one for The International. And now players, as well the hero played, will be earning experience for each match played. It's called "Dota Plus", and will take over the previous Battle Pass, providing players with a shard currency, as well as new tiers of badges, chat wheel responses, and rewards. 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. A post-game analytics screen will wrap everything up with a full-game performance comparison based on multiple metrics and a breakdown of damage dealt by and to each hero based on sources abilities, summoned units, and attacks. And in case you are confused about which hero to pick, Plus Assistant will suggest that as well. Apart from this there is a lane strategy feature that will offer team-wide suggestions.

Typically, Dota 2 has monetized through the sale of optional cosmetic skins, announcer voices, or new characters so the addition of an optional paid subscription to the longtime free-to-play game is a notable change. Non-subscribers will have to buy tickets for $1.
