Valve’s Dota 2 has just made an unprecedented move in the many years of Dota 2’s existence. This is possibly the most generous gift they have ever given to the Dota community thus far. As of October 26, “The International Swag Bag” has landed. In it, you will find a one month Dota Plus membership, 24 Battle Pass levels and a free Arcana set of your choice!
The only requirement for players is that they have played at least 10 games this Battle Pass season. This entitles you to one month of Dota Plus, one Arcana bundle, and a level one Battle Pass.
The Arcanas can only be chosen from the ones currently available in the store, which means limited items like the Queen of Pain and Windranger Arcanas from the TI10 Battle Pass are not available.
For those who already have the Battle Pass, you’ll receive 24 levels instead, according to Valve.
These rewards will be available until the end of the Battle Pass season in January, which means there’s plenty of time to get in your 10 reps even if all you play is Ability Arena.
The International playoffs are in the books, and four standout teams have survived with dreams of claiming the Aegis still intact. As we all catch our breaths during this interlude between the nail-biting action, we’d like to take a moment to focus our attention towards Dota players all around the world, not just those competing on stage in Singapore.
As we announced in June with the Battle Report update, our goal is to harness the excitement of The International Grand Finals and ensure that the days and weeks following the event’s conclusion offer fans the very best time to play Dota.
To that end, today we’re unveiling The International 2022 Swag Bag, a free giveaway for all Dota players. Log in now — or anytime before the Battle Pass ends — to claim your three rewards:
- One month of Dota Plus.
- A Level 1 Battle Pass, redeemable for 24 Battle Levels if you already own a Battle Pass.
- Your choice of one Arcana from any available on the Dota 2 store.
Starting today these rewards are available to all Dota players that play (or have played) at least 10 matches during the Battle Pass season, and will continue to be available to claim until the end of the season in January.
Like everyone in the community, we can’t wait to watch the best Dota players in the world compete for the Aegis of Champions this weekend, October 28-29. Plug in over at dota2.com/esports to follow the final push. Then, once the champions have earned their crowns, make sure to stay tuned for the release of Part II of the Battle Pass — arriving November 3rd to introduce a new Diretide event mode, the Candyworks, new ‘Conduit of the Blueheart’ Crystal Maiden persona, and more.
While claiming your Arcana, you’ll be directed to a page where you can check out all the Arcanas in Dota 2. You’ll have the option to demo them before making your final choice.
If your rewards don’t show up in your inventory after claiming them, queue up for another match and they should become available after the game. If you were able to claim your reward without playing 10 matches, you’ll still need to finish a match or two so they can take their place in your inventory.
Players who can’t see the Claim button will need to play their 10 matches first before the button shows up. At time of writing, players might experience an error while claiming the Dota Plus award, which is likely to get fixed with an upcoming patch.
