Dota Plus Update – Spring 2021

With spring just around the corner, it’s time to help cast off the mantle of winter with a refreshing influx of new features and content for Dota Plus. Featuring updates to Hero Relics, added Turbo functionality, a seasonal treasure, and refreshed guild quests and rewards, there’s ample for Dota Plus members to explore.

Hero Relics Update
Dota Plus Hero Relics now let you earn bonus Hero XP by increasing their stat values. Each Hero Relic gains a level whenever you reach a certain value for that specific stat. For example, Axe’s “Enemies Culled” Relic will level up every 50 times you kill an enemy with Culling Blade. When a Relic levels up, you will see an in-game overhead toast showing off the stat, and you will also gain Hero XP. Common Relics grant 5 Hero XP per level up, and Rare Relics grant 30 Hero XP per level up.

We’ve also revamped Hero Relic purchasing. You now have the choice to buy random Common Relics for 1,600 Shards or random Rare Relics for 8,000 shards. Regardless of type, you will no longer receive duplicates while purchasing.

Lastly, we’ve done a pass to fix up or swap out Relics that were not functioning correctly due to gameplay changes.

Turbo Update
We know that some players prefer the faster pace of Turbo matches, so we’ve enabled both Hero Relics and Hero Challenges in that mode. Hero Relics will gain progress during Turbo matches at half the rate of normal Dota matches, and players can earn up to 1 star for Hero Challenges.

Dota Plus Seasonal Treasure
The Spring 2021 Seasonal Treasure is here, available for purchase with shards. Exclusive to Dota Plus members, this treasure features all new sets for Bloodseeker, Windranger, Clockwerk, Slark, Lich, Broodmother, Sand King, Drow Ranger, Pugna, Juggernaut, and Magnus. There’s also a chance to unlock the Mango the Newt courier, which comes preloaded with random prismatic and kinetic gems.

Updated Seasonal Quests & Guild Rewards
Today’s update also comes with a new set of Dota Plus quests to help haul in some extra shards for new relics and the Seasonal Treasure — offering up to 115,200 shards over the course of the season.

Rounding out today’s changes, the guild rewards for silver, gold, and platinum tier guilds have been switched for the season.

The Dota Universe Expands with an All-New Anime Series

We are excited to share an all-new anime series exploring the Dota universe like you’ve never seen before — premiering on Netflix March 25th. Catch the announcement video below and check out the Dragon’s Blood section of the client as we reveal more updates in the weeks to come.


Overwatch Arrives in Dota

Today’s update introduces a powerful tool to help the community regulate negative behavior amongst its ranks — Overwatch.

THE BASICS
———
Much like in CS:GO, Overwatch for Dota 2 provides a system that allows good-standing members of the community to verify the validity of reports flagging disruptive actions within games.

If a player chooses to review a case, they’ll watch a replay with pre-marked sections indicating possible negative behavior by a specific player. After reviewing the replay, they can choose: guilty, not guilty, or insufficient evidence for either.

Eligible players will occasionally be notified below their profile pictures that they have the option to review a case. Reviewers will earn an accuracy score for their efforts, and those who falsely convict will receive a lower score, eventually losing the ability to participate in Overwatch at all. To gather a pool of reliable reviewers, we’ll be enabling a growing number of accounts for participation over the next week or so.

REPORTING
———
Reports can now be made directly in a match via the scoreboard, or by selecting a player and clicking the flag on their hero portrait. Placing markers in the match will indicate to future reviewers where to look for negative behavior, and you can report the same player as many times as needed — meaning the more reports you file that are accurate, the more evidence the reviewers will have to make a case.

To accommodate the new system, players now have a distinct pool of reports for Overwatch separate from communication reports. Reporting a player for Overwatch consumes one Overwatch report regardless of how many times you report that player in the game. As before, communication reports are still issued at the end of the game.

COMMUNICATION BANS
———
As noted above, communication reports are distinct from Overwatch reports and are still issued in the post-game screen. However, instead of preventing users from typing or using voice chat during a match, communication bans will now mute deserving players by default. As a result, other players can choose for themselves whether to unmute a chat-banned teammate or not. When a chat-banned player uses communications during a match, they’ll receive a reminder of their status in the chat window.


The Dota Pro Circuit Winter 2021 Season

This week begins the Winter 2021 season of the Dota Pro Circuit and with it kicks off six straight weeks of daily pro Dota action; all day, every day.

In preparation for this season we’ve revamped the in-client watching experience and you’ll find a ton of new ways to watch and follow along with the scene. The “Watch” tab now has a comprehensive schedule and shows you the the current team standings. You’ll quickly get a snapshot of where things stand and what games are happening in the moment and where to watch. You’ll also be able to follow your favorite teams to make sure you never miss one of their matches. We’ve also updated the DPC app (iOS and Android) so you can follow along and track the new leagues and teams there as well.

If you’ve been following professional Dota for a while you’ll know we’ve explored a few ways for you to cheer on your favorite teams. In the coming weeks you’ll be able to back your favorites by purchasing content packages featuring in-game effects, sprays, emotes, loading screens and (of course) chat-wheel lines from your favorite teams. This content is coming straight from the teams themselves and they are submitting some great stuff for you to equip across your account. 

We’re excited for the next two months of competitive Dota and we know you are too. The games are live and you can jump in and watch right now right here:

The 2021 Dota Pro Circuit


As we start a new year amidst positive news regarding the vaccine for COVID-19, we wanted to share with you our plans for the Dota Pro Circuit season 2021. 

This year’s competition is slated to start on January 18th, and will consist of 2 seasons, leading up to The International 10. As previously announced, each season, will consist of a six week League portion leading up to a Major. After two seasons, there will be qualifiers for the remaining slots for The International 10 happening in Stockholm in August. The calendar for the two seasons is as follows:

Season 1: January 18th – February 28th. (March 14th for China with a break in the middle)
Major 1: March 25th – April 4th

Season 2: April 13th  – May 23rd
Major 2: June 2nd – June 13th

Given that several teams experienced a lot of roster changes throughout the year and performance has varied among teams from the previous DPC season, we will not be using previous season’s DPC points as a way to seed teams into the leagues but rather selecting the top 4 teams in best form from each region to be directly qualified to the Upper division, while a series of qualifiers, closed and open, will determine the remaining 12 teams in both divisions.

At the end of the league, the top teams from each region’s upper division will qualify to the Major. For the first major, the distribution of the 18 slots will be as follows:

EU: Top 4
China: Top 4
SEA: Top 3
CIS: Top 3
NA: Top 2
SA: Top 2

The bottom two teams of the Upper Division in each Region will be relegated to the Lower Division, while the top two teams of the Lower Division will be promoted. The bottom two teams of the lower division will be eliminated from the league and open qualifiers will decide which are the two teams that will occupy those slots on the next season.

Due to feedback from fans and players, the schedule has been revisited to make sure all match times fit the regions play and watch times as best as possible. The new schedule is as follows (All times Pacific Time):

Schedule:

Upper Division
Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday
12AM China SEA China SEA China
3AM China SEA SEA SEA China
6AM CIS CIS
9AM Europe Europe CIS CIS Europe CIS
12PM Europe SA NA SA Europe NA

3AM SEA CIS CIS CIS
6AM CIS Europe Europe CIS Europe
9AM Europe SA SA SA
12PM SA NA Europe SA NA
3PM NA NA NA
6PM
9PM China SEA SEA China SEA China China

The six regional leagues will be operated by the following tournament organizers, who will in the following days share more information on qualifiers, broadcasting, show and talent information:

Europe: Dreamhack
CIS: ESL
China: Perfect World
SEA: PGL
NA: BTS
SA: Dotapit

In an upcoming update, by the end of January, the DPC circuit will become integrated with the client, featuring Standings, Schedule and Tournament Information, as well as making it easy for people to follow their favorite teams and support them through purchasing seasonal Fan Support bundles.
