Valve introduces a Dota 2 subscription program with various benefits”

For the monthly price of $3.99 Dollars you can also track in-game progress, select a challenge before the game (with these challenges refreshed every two weeks), and make use of the Hero Chat Wheel, allowing you to choose phrases for your hero to say.

Valve announced a subscription service today for Dota 2 players named Dota Plus, arriving as a replacement for the Battle Passes that revolved around the Valve sponsored tournaments, Majors.

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.

Furthermore, Dota Plus grants a new weekly reward of 1,000 shards for winning three games.

Dota Plus members will also get access to the returning Battle Cup for free, while other players will have to pay $0.99 for the privilege. The suggestions even change mid-game to be more helpful depending on the situation and if the player decides to go with their own builds. One of the ways it'll do this is through Hero Leveling alongside various Challenges and a Plus Assistant that'll help players make the best decisions possible by "utilizing real-time item and ability suggestions" based on data from millions of games. This nifty new tool will be offering players customized item suggestions based on lane selection and items that have been purchased so far.

The Plus Assistant also comes with this new subscription, helping you to improve your game by suggesting items based on what lane you've selected and the roster of heroes, as well as ability suggestions, hero suggestions, lane strategy, and death summary, breaking down the reasons you met your end, which may also be helped by post-game analytics. It's priced at $4 per month, with some small discounts available if you lock in a subscription for six or 12 months.

And while the scheduling is gone, some seasonal flavor will remain: Dota Plus subscribers will get "Seasonal Terrain" visual elements on the map that will be active during each season.
