Chapter 1: It’s FINALLY HERE!
The much-anticipated battle pass 2019 is live and this time, it seems like most of what the community has begged for, finally came true!
Chapter 2: BSJ is Happy.
Not only do the battle pass delivers epic-looking immortals and a naked Axe immortal, but it also ships with useful matchmaking features. One of it is the “AVOID PLAYER” option. Met a toxic player in-game?
You can now choose to avoid that player forever! A few months ago, BSJ quit matchmaking after this player named Toxic, cyberbullies him. By only finding a match when BSJ streams, he’s bound to get into the same game as BSJ. Once there, he will feed when he’s on BSJ’s team but he will play his best heroes when against BSJ. Now that we have this new feature, we can expect BSJ to enjoy playing matchmaking again!
This also works for AdmiralBulldog as he does not want to match with 2K players, so he can choose to avoid each and every shitty ranked immortal players. So, you pretty much get the idea how this is good for us as casual players too!
Chapter 3: SO MANY ARCANAS?!
It seems like Valve is on cocaine this year as they throw out not one exclusive item but THREE?! The first one is the much-awaited Tiny set at only level 255, comes with cool effects and more!
Then, we may not want an Invoker arcana but Valve is going to make it better than an arcana by making a child Invoker, back when he’s still learning to master his art! Not much is know just yet but it will be coming real soon, available at level 305.
Then, we are also getting an all-new Earthshaker ARCANA for free at only level 365. Talk about value! This neon-blue themed Arcana is already looking insane from just its silhouette Valve showed!
But one thing that’s already released and available is the new exclusive Immortal, a complete NAKED AXE set! It just doesn’t get any manlier than this. Who needs Axe when you can play as a punching naked man?
Chapter 4: Bored of normal games?
Well, as expected, everything that has been around since the last few battle passes such as quest sets, wager and the double down your MMR feature is all back! It’s time to grind that MMR before the season resets.
Besides that, the changed tower model is also back after its disappearance from last year, this time they look like immobile Tiny throwing rocks at you, which is really, really cute. I would love to feed my courier to the enemy tower just to see it throw rocks!
You know the drill, the usual stuffs are all back, from voice packs, music, terrain, in-game effects and also river vials are here. But this time, you can also High-five your teammate and plant a “ward” that basically tells that “I WAS HERE”, to step up your mind game.
Chapter 5: INSERT EPIC LAYOVER.
The battle pass also comes with a new versus screen, that shows your hero and teammates getting ready for battle, this is a really cool feature.
Besides that, in hopes of getting more new players to play Dota, the battle pass is now “newbie-friendly” as it comes with in-game assistance. From ward suggestion to jungle stacking, it’s all easy to do now. Guess you just waited years to practice these.
Chapter 6: Worth It?
HELL YEAH! This time, Valve didn’t seem to be too greedy on the battle pass rewards as most exclusive rewards can be obtained before level 400! Which means you don’t have to spend too much just to get that limited-edition Earthshaker arcana or naked Axe. What are you waiting for?! Get yourself a battle pass, right away! Or you could wait for a giveaway, just maybe though, don’t take my word on it.
