Today marks the end of The International 10 Battle Pass season. Thank you to everyone who participated and while this year didn’t end with a team hoisting the Aegis, all of us at Valve hope that you and your families remain healthy and we look forward to gathering everyone together for TI10.
With the close of the season, we are pleased to announce the results of the 2020 Arcana Vote. This year the community cast millions of votes for two of the purplest heroes in the Dota 2 pool, Faceless Void and Spectre and with a split of 27,475,258 votes to 24,948,538, this year’s Arcana winner is: Spectre. The team will set out to design an Arcana befitting Mercurial, the Spectre, channeling her dark energy into forms heretofore unimagined. How will she haunt her quarry? In what manner can her refraction erode her enemies? When taking aim with her Spectral Dagger, what deadly color will she glow? Yes, purple, obviously, but what SHADE of purple? Sit tight, lavender lovers, plum buffs and violet voters. With time all (or maybe some) of these questions will be answered.
Also, next week we’re releasing some new updates to Dota Plus. Among them will be updates to Guilds, a new Dota Plus Season, and a new MMR reset mechanism.
