Dota Plus is a subscription service that features a variety of perks, some of which stem from what you'd expect to see in a Battle Pass.
Valve has just introduced a subscription-based service to replace the current Battle Plus Plan on Dota 2.
Dota Plus goes for $4 per month, with discounts for six and 12-month subscriptions. "In the past we released two types of Battle Passes, ones that revolved around the Majors, and one around The International". There are also Dota Plus exclusive challenges that players can take part in, a chat wheel for hero phrases, and weekly Shard rewards for winning matches. And now players, as well the hero played, will be earning experience for each match played.
Typically, Dota 2 has monetized through the sale of optional cosmetic skins, announcer voices, or new characters so the addition of an optional paid subscription to the longtime free-to-play game is a notable change.
That is all standard fare of a subscription within a free to play game, but where things get odd are with the addition of "Plus Assistant". The community seems pretty divided on the new service, however, with some players going so far as to call it pay-to-win in regards to the real-time item and skill suggestions that will be provided to subscribers.
The Plus Assistant will also suggest which ability to select at each level.
Dota Plus will also give players access to a "Death Summary" screen that will provide "a second-by-second timeline of incoming damage, stuns, and other disabling effects" that led to the death of the hero. There is a Post-Game Analytics feature as well that will "compare your performance for a given metric over the course of the game to what the average performance is at a given skill bracket". Finally, Valve is bringing back the weekend Battle Cup tournaments, which Plus members will receive free access to. Non-subscribers will still be able to participate, but will have to purchase tickets to be able to do so.
And while the scheduling is gone, some seasonal flavor will remain: Dota Plus subscribers will get "Seasonal Terrain" visual elements on the map that will be active during each season.
