Just over 24 hours after adding yet another new cosmetic set to dota 2Valve is now backtracking to a previous distribution method because fans and talent alike were not willing to deal with yet another poor attempt to gamify the unlocking method.
This new update revolved around Talent Stickers, an addition to the previous Team and Player Autograph Sticker Capsules that specifically pertain to the talent hosting and casting The International 2022 throughout October. Each sticker comes in one of four different variants and contains voice lines from each talent, with a portion of each capsule purchase supporting them too.
Unlike in previous years, where an autograph was made available to purchase on its own, these Talent Stickers were only available as random drops via the capsules, meaning you had to essentially gamble your money in hopes of getting the stickers and voice lines they wanted. Oh, and only Holo or Gold quality stickers gave the voice lines, meaning you have less than a two percent shot at grabbing the ones you want.
