The Dota 2 Blog
announces Dota Plus
, a new optional
monthly subscription for Dota 2
that replaces the MOBA's Battle Pass.
Today’s update unveils Dota Plus, a new monthly subscription
service designed to help you get the most out of every match you play.
Dota Plus is an evolution of the Battle Pass. In the past we released two types
of Battle Passes, ones that revolved around the Majors, and one around The
International. As a result of the recent introduction of the Pro Circuit, we’ve
replaced the Majors Battle Passes with a new type of service that doesn’t depend
on a specific start and end date, and one that we can continually add features
and content to over time.
This reimagining of the Majors Battle Pass will be an ongoing, uninterrupted
service filled with features that provide both progression and opportunities for
improvement. Hero Leveling offers you a way to make progress every match while
earning Shards, a new currency that can be used to unlock rewards. Test your
skills by completing hundreds of new Challenges of varying difficulties. Use the
Plus Assistant to help you make build decisions by utilizing real-time item and
ability suggestions. 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. Better understand your playstyle by using new graphs and
analysis tools both during the match and after it’s finished.
This update also includes the return of the Battle Cup. All Dota Plus members
will have free weekly access to play in the weekend tournaments, while
non-members can still purchase tickets for $0.99 to participate.
Everything Dota Plus has to offer is available now for $3.99 per month. Receive
a discount if you sign up for a six- or twelve-month subscription. Want to gift
Dota Plus to a friend? You can purchase gift memberships that will remain active
for a fixed number of months.

information on all of the features included in your subscription.
