Today’s update unveils a New Ranked Season, a gameplay balance update and new additions to Dota Plus, including four exclusive Dota Plus item sets for Monkey King, Medusa, Enchantress, and Centaur.
Dota Plus subscribers also have a new set of Seasonal Quests to complete during the new ranked season. Check out the full list on the new Dota Plus home tab, available by clicking your shard total in the top-right corner of your screen.
To mark the start of a new Ranked Season, all Rank Medals have been reset and players have a chance to recalibrate. In this new season, Rank Medals now have seven star tiers instead of five, offering more rank precision and opportunities to advance. As a bonus, players in each Rank tier will gain access to new emoticons based on their rank.
Also included for the new ranked season, you can now see your numerical behavior score in your profile and conduct summaries, allowing greater insight into how conduct affects everyone’s enjoyment of the game.
Along with today’s update, the 7.21 balance patch is now available. Check out a full list of the changes here.
