Representatives of the Dota 2 community criticized the work done by Valve. In particular, Ukrainian commentator Vitaly «v1lat» Volochay was extremely dissatisfied with the long-awaited battle pass.
«I looked at the reviews on the Battle Pass in the morning. Was it created by one person during lunch breaks? Absolutely nothing causes a wow effect, the arcana on Faceless Void really looks like someone’s joke,» wrote v1lat in his Telegram.
Streamer Timur ТраВоМаН Khafizov also did not hide his indignation. He was really upset by the arcana on Faceless Void.
«What is this? No, wait. Do you even like this? This is some kind of shock content. How could you do something so bad? I just don’t even want this arcana, I don’t want to play with it. It’s just something unreal,» said ТраВоМаН in a video posted on YouTube.
Ukrainian esportsman Andrey «Ghostik» Kadyk also admitted that he was upset by the new Battle Pass.
«To be honest, I was even upset because of the Battle Pass. In fact, all that we have right now is the arcana for Void, well, maybe for Razor, in theory, if they do something good. But for this you need to donate a bunch of levels . Not to mention the fact that most of the juicy content is simply not available,» wrote Ghostik.
