7.20 Gameplay Update

The 7.20 Gameplay Update is now live, bringing with it a large number of gameplay changes, dozens of updated abilities, and much more.

Head over to the update page to learn about all the changes.


The Major and Professional Dota Players

We are about to embark on another journey towards The International. The previous International concluded with an historic 5 game series between LGD and OG that had fans on the edge of their seats. With the playoffs of the first Major about to begin shortly, teams now set their sights on competing once again at The International next year.

The International has always been about bringing fans from diverse cultures all around the world together to celebrate the game we love with one another. Professional players compete year-round, hoping for a chance to prove themselves on the grand stage. They have strong competitive spirits, with high emotions and drive to perform. That’s why we love watching them compete. We’ve always had an approach of letting the players be themselves, and to express themselves freely. That’s how it’s always been for a long time. However, we also expect pro players to understand that they represent the Dota community regardless of where they are. Words carry a lot of meaning. Some people may not agree or understand why certain words are harmful, but it doesn’t make it any less so to those on the receiving end. The language used by multiple players over the last week has caused many of our fans a lot of pain and is not behavior that we condone.

We’ve been spending the past few days talking to various pro players and community leaders about this. From all the interactions we’ve seen over the years, we know that deep down professional players respect each other immensely. However, we want to be very clear that Valve will not tolerate racist language between pro players in any form. We think it is really damaging to the entire Dota community whenever even a single professional player uses discriminatory language. It pits fans against each other, belittles and demeans entire groups and makes them feel like they are not as important. Going forward, we expect all teams who participate in our tournaments to hold its players accountable, and be prepared to follow up with strong punishments when players represent Dota and its community poorly.

We hope that players and the community around the world will become better educated and more respectful as a result of the recent incidents. We think the communities everywhere around the world want the same things: for our favorite players and teams to do well, and for a great display of Dota. With the group stages over and the playoffs about to begin, we want to wish good luck to all the teams participating. Let’s enjoy some Dota together.


Tournoi majeur de Kuala Lumpur


La nouvelle saison du circuit professionnel de Dota est en cours.
Le premier championnat mineur vient de s’achever et les premiers points du circuit professionnel ont été attribués. Tigers, grand vainqueur de Stockholm, a décroché une place pour le premier tournoi majeur cette saison : le tournoi de Kuala Lumpur.

Tigers vient rejoindre un groupe de 15 autres équipes provenant de six régions différentes. Elles sont tous prêtes à commencer cette saison sur les chapeaux de roue lors du tournoi majeur de Kuala Lumpur qui débutera vendredi 9 novembre à 3 h du matin (heure française).
Avec 1 000 000 de dollars et 15 000 points du circuit professionnel à la clé, les équipes donneront à leurs fans et rivaux un avant-goût de ce que sera la saison jusqu’à The International 2019 qui aura lieu à Shanghai.

Les fans du monde entier pourront visionner les prouesses des équipes du tournoi majeur de Kuala Lumpur depuis le client Dota 2 ou la chaîne Twitch de PGL tous les jours du 9 au 18 novembre. Ceux qui se trouvent en Malaisie pourront également assister au tournoi en personne à l’Axiata Arena à partir du vendredi 16 novembre lors des trois derniers jours de l’événement.

La mise à jour du gameplay 7.20 sera disponible dès le lendemain du couronnement des prochains champions du tournoi majeur, le lundi 19 novembre.


The Kuala Lumpur Major

The new season of the Dota Pro Circuit is now underway. With the conclusion of the first Minor Championship, the first DPC points have already been awarded, and Tigers—as the last team standing in Stockholm—have earned the right to join the tournament roll in Kuala Lumpur at the opening Dota 2 Major Championship of this competitive season.

They round out a field of 16 competitors qualified from six regions who all seek to start the year off strong when The Kuala Lumpur Major kicks off on Friday, November 9 at 10:00 am Malaysia Time. With $1,000,000 USD and 15,000 DPC points up for grabs, teams have a chance to show their fans and rivals alike what each can expect to find on the road to next year’s championship showdown in Shanghai.

Fans around the world can catch all The Kuala Lumpur Major action in the Dota 2 client, on SteamTV, or on PGL’s Twitch stream daily from November 9 through Sunday, November 18, and fans in Malaysia are welcome to join in live at Axiata Arena from Friday, November 16 for the final three days of the event.

Once the next Major Champion is crowned, the 7.20 gameplay update will be released the following day on Monday, November 19th.


Treasure Update

Today’s update includes the debut of the Treasure of the Carmine Cascade, featuring all-new item bundles for Ancient Apparition, Ember Spirit, Oracle, Batrider, Visage, Skywrath Mage, and Razor. In addition, each of these treasures you open also offers escalating odds to receive a rare Earthshaker bundle, a very rare Dark Willow bundle, or an extremely rare Nature’s Prophet bundle.

We’ve also taken this opportunity to simplify and rework the way we calculate escalating odds for this treasure and going forward. You can now click on the escalating odds arrow next to each of the rare, very rare, or extremely rare drops to see the exact odds of receiving them based on how many you’ve already opened.

Dota Plus subscribers now have an access to a new perk where unwanted rewards from this treasure can be recycled into treasure fragments. When you’ve acquired 6 fragments from the same treasure, they are automatically transformed into an extra copy of that treasure and 2000 Dota Plus shards.

This update also introduces a new feature that allows all players to automatically shuffle between item sets for a hero after every match. Enable the shuffle icon next to the Full Sets loadout and then designate which sets you want to include in the pool.


Dota Plus End-of-Summer Update

In the wake of the thrilling conclusion to The International and the culmination of the Battle Pass season, today’s update is focused on bringing some of that summer fun into the perks of Dota Plus.

Leading the way, the Ranked Roles matchmaking queue has been added to Dota Plus. To mark the occasion, we’ve added a welcome quest where players who win 5 times in the Ranked Roles queue will earn 5000 shards.

We’ve also moved In-Game Tipping into Dota Plus, letting you celebrate the joyous moments of battle by sending some free Shards an ally’s or enemy’s way in recognition of their contributions to the game.

Express yourself year-round with select Sound Effects, which are now unlockable with Shards. Once unlocked, you’ll have access to these sounds while your Dota Plus membership is active.

Finally, as a special end-of-summer bonus, any Dota Plus member who plays 4 games this weekend can claim an extra 10,000 Shard reward.
