Valve doesn’t just want you to watch Dota 2 eSports matches, it wants you to have a more interactive experience with the game. It even wants you to have a small stake in them. It just released a Dota Pro Circuit app for Android and iOS that lets you win Shards (the in-game currency for Dota Plus members) by predicting the winners of Circuit matches. This will be a lot of fun for gamers and will give you a whole new spin on things.
It’s like sports betting, but without spending real money outside of your existing subscription. There’s also a fantasy sports mode that encourages you to create your ideal roster of pro players in return for Shards, and a customized news feed shows how well your favorite teams and players are faring.
If that sounds good, the apps should be available everywhere and as a direct APK download if your device can’t access Google Play. Valve wants to give you an extra reason to participate and get new players to sign up for Dota Plus. This is a good way to do both while promoting the best players. We will have to see if this becomes a big hit for them.
