Dota Plus Subscription Service Revealed For Dota 2

No Caption Provided

With that in mind, it is big news that after all of these years, Valve has made a decision to implement a new subscription for the game, dubbed "Dota Plus", which will replace the tournament Battle Pass going forward. 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. Traditionally the Battle Pass was broken into two types, one that revolved around the Majors, and one that revolved around The International.

The ongoing service from Valve is one that's said to provide "both progression and opportunities for improvement" for players. It costs you $3.99, with discounts if you choose to subscribe for six or twelve months.

Lapides Asset Management Llc, which manages about $912.08M and $488.18M US Long portfolio, upped its stake in Diebold Nixdorf Inc. The semiconductor company reported $0.14 EPS for the quarter, topping the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of $0.12 by $0.02.

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. The recent introduction of the Pro Circuit caused Valve to change the Battle Passes to a new type of service that doesn't depend on a specific start and end date. Finally, Valve is bringing back the weekend Battle Cup tournaments, which Plus members will receive free access to. Sarcasm aside, let's go over what Dota Plus has to offer real quickly. Each character now gains XP and can level up across games, granting Reward Shards and responses for use with the new Hero Chat Wheel.

More information on Dota Plus, including fees, can be found on the service's official website. Completing those new tasks rewards players with things like new voice line slots or the in-game currency needed to pick up Plus-exclusive items from the store. This is a pretty expansive feature that seems to be incredibly useful. During Dota 2 matches, the tool uses data gathered from the whole of past Dota 2 games to indicate items that best suit a player's current loadout and suggest ability upgrades based on current in-game situations. Lastly, we have the Plus Perks.
