It’s that time of year for Dota 2 fans, The International 8 Battle Pass has been released and fans will once again be opening their wallets to Icefrog and Lord Gaben. Already surpassing the previous years, if this momentum keeps up, we might just pass the 30 million USD mark and make history once again. With of course 25% of all Battle Pass sales going directly to The International 2018 prize pool.

Can we break another esports record this year as well?

The International 2018 Battle Pass brings back all those favorite features and loot, with some interesting new additions this year. Purchasers of The International Battle Pass will be getting the new multi-team Dungeon Clash (yet to be released), Cavern Crawl (quests), Mutation Mode, sprays, Team Challenge, customized lane creeps, in-game tipping, role-based matchmaking, Dota Pro Circuit predictions, and a prize pool community goal. All for the low cost of RM39.00 (level 1 TI8 Battle Pass) or RM145.00 (level 75 TI8 Battle Pass), if you want more levels and rewards. Just to add on, like last year, you can buy levels for your TI 8 Battle Pass. Talk about a super valuable gold mine for Valve, soon to be filled with tons of salt and tears from Dota 2 fans. The only question I pose to all gamers, is it worth it?

Team Challenge. A quick chance to rank up in a party of 5 by challenging a team above your MMR.

A nice change for those who are tired of having to guess what your teammates are playing. It also should help curb the annoying all carry line up issues in the trenches.

A interesting simple twist that we had already in custom maps, which has pretty much died off a long time ago.

Cavern Crawl – another quest like system to get some loot.

Bring backs many of the good old features from the pass Battle Passes.

Higher levels mean more loot, the grind is real!

Achievements for more points, which equals more loot.

Gambling is back
