Dota 2 gets a subscription service called Dota Plus

Valve adds optional 'Plus' paid subscription to free-to-play Dota 2

Valve Introduces Dota 2 Subscription Service Called Dota Plus

A post from Valve on the Dota 2 blogs detailed the objective behind the new subscription while drawing comparisons to the Battle Pass system that Dota 2 players are likely familiar with.

The Dota team has unveiled Dota Plus, a new monthly subscription service described as an "evolution of the Battle Pass".

The Majors Battle Pass, which was modelled after The International Battle Pass, had daily and weekly challenges, new cosmetic items in the theme of the Major. 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.

You can find the full run-down of benefits on the Dota Plus website, where you can also take a look at its pricing options. Additionally, characters get their own challenges that are designed for that specific hero and their mechanics; challenges feature different tiers of difficulty and reward XP based on what you complete.

SBI slashes monthly balance charges by 75 per cent
In October, the SBI had begun charging a whopping 20-50 per cent service charge for not maintaining monthly average balance. The country's largest lender State Bank of India ( SBI ) has announced reduction of these charges from 1 April 2018.

The service also grants access to the Plus Assistant, a tool that provides various helpful information as you play based on "data gathered from millions of recent games at each skill bracket, ensuring your builds stay current in the ever-evolving meta".

The features coming to Dota Plus will include hero leveling, which offers a way to make progress every match, and shards, a new currency that can be used to unlock rewards. Teammates of Dota Plus subscribers will also be able to see lane strategy suggestions that help create plans for how players will go about their laning phases. While non-subscribers will still be able to buy a ticket for $0.99 (Rs 64 approximately).

While reactions to the release of Dota Plus have been mixed, one new announcement dropped recently has made people very happy, with the reveal of Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo Switch. Dota PLus is available now, and you'll receive a discount if you purchase in six or 12-month subscriptions.
