Hey, watafakers! Dota 2 has a lot of additional content: character skins, map landscape, hero replicas, and much more. In addition, players who want to play at a higher level are offered a special subscription - Dota Plus. So, should you buy Dota 2+ in 2022? Let’s discuss.
Dota Plus - what is it, and is it pay-to-win?

What does Dota Plus provide?

The cost of the subscription is $3.99 per month. For this money, the player receives a number of "pluses". Let's start with the player assistant. It has a range of analytical tools that will allow you to play better. At the stage of the hero's draft, the assistant will tell you which character is better to choose based on who was picked by enemies and allies. 

 

Moreover, during the game, an analysis of items and abilities will be added to your interface: what is better to pump and what artifacts are worth collecting. A nice little thing is the built-in tap and stack timings. Dota Plus will show you when to attack neutral creeps with precision to the second. Graphs and tables with indicators after the game will allow you to analyze the match and draw conclusions for the future.

 

It seems that all these statistics are a “monkey” business. However, it is not for nothing that Dota 2 is a “chess” of the 21st century. Analytical work in this game is no less important factor than at school.

 

Dota Plus is not limited to one helper. The subscription allows you to get additional visual content. Each subscriber is provided with a seasonal landscape. This is quite a good case, because eventually, all players get bored of playing on the same map. Pass holders also get additional elements of the chat wheel - you can "throw" funny lines during the game.

With Dota Plus, a special currency was introduced - shards. Their player gets paid for completing tasks that were also added to the subscription. Scraps can be spent on hero nets, treasure chests, loading screens, and other valuable items.

With the help of the heroic challenges of Dota Plus, you can diversify the usual gameplay. There are quests for each character, successful completion of which allows you to level up and get the same fragments. A thing similar to a test is a hero's relics. They count your successes on the battlefield.

 

Let's finish the story about the essence of Dota Plus with a talisman of predictions. The first allows you to place a bet during the game. If you enjoy how your ally or enemy played.

Should I buy Dota Plus?

A subscription makes sense if you play Dota a lot and don't mind spending $4 a month. At least you can subscribe for 1 month and then decide for yourself whether it is worth it. In that case, if you enter Dota 2 to play once a week and do not spend a lot of time on the game, then Plus does not make much sense - you simply will not have time to "absorb" all the content offered, and 4 dollars will be spent essentially in vain.

Negative feedback from players about Dota Plus

Players also did not like that Dota Plus subscribers will receive unique tasks to perform during matches, which may only hinder others because such users often think only about their own goals and not about winning the whole team.

Dota Plus changes in 7.32c

Combat report. A new feature with which you can analyze the games of the last gaming season, get performance statistics on different heroes and remember the brightest moments from the matches. In addition, you have a clip builder. Players can save clips while watching replays. To do this, you need to click on the scissors icon in the upper right corner, select the interval and calibrate the required values. The designer supports a frame rate of up to 90 FPS.

Let’s talk about Invisibility mechanics in Dota
Invisibility = invulnerability - don't cry over spilt milk. A stitch in time saves nine, and, in my opinion, Valve finally noticed this pattern. Remember the joke about Riki and Mirana's ult, under which the first must enter super invisibility? Maybe it's not such a bad idea for 7.32 patch.
