Dota Plus is a monthly subscription service for Valve's MOBA

No Caption Provided

In the past, these have taken the form of limited-time compendiums that centered around major Dota 2 esports tournaments, including The International and Majors.

Valve is testing the waters with a $3.99 monthly subscription service to DOTA 2, which is priced low enough where any dedicated, daily player will probably bother to buy into it. Dota PLus is available now, and you'll receive a discount if you purchase in six or 12-month subscriptions.

It was only just recently that the much beloved Rick Ross [VIDEO ] was reportedly in the hospital on life support. Rapper Biz Markie also paid tribute , saying: "He had two flawless singles and the platonic rap remix".

This reimagining of the Majors Battle Pass will be an ongoing, uninterrupted service filled with features that provide both progression and opportunities for improvement. And now players, as well the hero played, will be earning experience for each match played. The subscription will cost you $3.99 per month and offers Hero Leveling, so as your progress with a hero you get Reward Shards and new chat wheel responses; Hero-specific challenges to get more XP for leveling up your hero; Hero Relics, see Achievements; as well as a weekly reward and new Plus-exclusive items. The Dota Plus site that describes the Assistant's objective says that it'll suggest items that should be purchased, abilities that should be leveled based on what lane players are in and on the compositions of both teams, and will even suggest heroes for players to pick before the game based on what allies and enemies have already picked.

Perhaps the biggest addition of all in this update would be the Plus Assistant. 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. There is a Post-Game Analytics feature as well that will "compare your performance for a given metric over the course of the game to what the average performance is at a given skill bracket". To cap it all, Dota Plus members will have access to the Seasonal Terrain that is active during each season.
