Valve adds 'Dota Plus' subscription to Dota 2

Dota plus Valve adds 'Dota Plus' subscription to Dota 2

However I do play several free-to-play games, and several of them have an optional subscription service of some kind.

That is all standard fare of a subscription within a free to play game, but where things get odd are with the addition of "Plus Assistant".

Majors Battle Passes, like this one from fall 2016, included daily and weekly challenges, new cosmetics and effects, and other themed features.

Priced at US$3.99 (RM15.50) per month with discounts for six- and 12-month commitments, the Dota 2 Dota Plus subscription is being rolled out as a year-round replacement for event-based Battle Pass bundles.

Sessions May Fire McCabe Days Before He's Set to Retire
TA source told AP that McCabe is suspected of misleading internal investigators about a media leak, an allegation he denies. Strzok was removed from the Mueller team in July, though the reason for his ouster was not reported until December.

According to a Dota 2 blog post, Valve will "continually add features and content" in Dota Plus over time. Dota Plus will be a continuous subscription instead of the temporary schedule behind a Battle Pass during a Major, though Valve noted it is not a replacement for The International Battle Pass.

Dota Plus can be bought within the in-game client for $3.99 per month. Sarcasm aside, let's go over what Dota Plus has to offer real quickly. 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.

Some notable features of Dota 2 plus include Hero Leveling, which will let you rack up XP for each game you play with a hero to unlock hero badges, Reward Shards, and more; Hero-Specific Challenges, which function as challenge-based achievements that earn you XP; the Hero Chat Wheel, which lets you say a number of phrases in allied or all chat and unlock more with hero badges, and more. 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. "Use the Plus Assistant to help you make build decisions by utilizing real-time item and ability suggestions". It gathers data from "millions of recent games", making sure that the suggested builds are in line with the current meta.
