… In this year’s Dota 2 “Battle Pass” — a premium subscription that usually offers cosmetics and other optional curiosities to the game — Valve bundled one of the most important features it has ever created. Players who buy the Battle Pass can now use an “experimental” Avoid Player feature, which is supposed to keep toxic players away from you. Here’s a different way to say it: Valve is now charging players a minimum of $9.99 to avoid harassers.
Hopefully, this feature will be improved and made open to the public as soon as possible. But knowing Valve, that doesn’t seem particularly likely.
I’m just kind of glad I don’t have to put up with the DotA 2 community anymore.
