A Reddit thread discussing the lack-of-content milestone reveals mixed opinions from Dota 2 players about the Dota Plus service.

Dota 2 has received some updates over the last month. The 7.27d update at the end of August brought some major changes to Hero balancing. Last week, Immortal Treasure III was finally released. Dota Plus, however, has not received any content updates — and hasn't for an entire year.

Dota Plus is Valve's subscription service for Dota 2. The $3.99/month service isn't necessarily focused on cosmetic content, as a subscription gives players access to a ton of in-game features otherwise inaccessible. Hero leveling, stat-tracking, Chatwheel lines, and many other features are restricted to Dota Plus members. Still, the service hasn't had an official update since Sept. 26 of last year.

Reddit user u/Feed_or_Feed took to the Dota 2 subreddit to announce the anniversary of the last Dota Plus content update to mixed responses from other users. Many users are outraged that a paid monthly service has had no content updates in over a year.

Others feel that Dota Plus provides exactly what it advertises. "I signed up for what it was and am/have been happy with it," u/Patobo says. "Presumably, as usual, when BP ends its features will get wrapped into it. I love the tech review theory of 'never buy anything on the promise of future software updates, it solves a lot of problems with buyer's remorse
