It will cost you ten dollars to avoid jerks in Dota 2

, | News

The latest Dota 2 premium pass includes access to tools that gives owners the ability to put other players on a personal ban list. Valve’s long-running MOBA now offers beta access to an Avoid Player feature, but you’ll have to give up at least $10 for the standard Battle Pass to use the tool.

Complaints from the Dota 2 community point out that besides charging for a basic toxic player management feature, the Avoid Player function doesn’t actually mean you won’t see those particular offenders in your future games. It only tells the system that you’d rather not play with a particular person, but matchmaking can override that notice. The Battle Pass does include a virtual high-five emote, so you can hopefully make nice and turn bad actors into buddies.
