Dota 2 players can finally have fun while waiting for a player to reconnect. Valve has introduced three pause-screen minigames, which will pop up on the screen when a game is paused. The three games, Whack-a-Meepo, Musical Chairs and Hero Hunt will help in making pause waits more bearable for players.

Valve has also promised a new summer event that will see Dota 2 players exploring a maze with three other friends.

The International 2020 stands postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Valve has not set a time for The International 2020, however, the current TI10 Battle Pass will still contribute to the event’s prize pool. With Dota 2 esports thriving, a new Dota 2 battle pass helps accelerate player engagement.
