Remember back when dota 2 item sets were the pinnacle of creativity? Well, that’s not entirely the case anymore apparently. Each year, Valve releases a bunch of custom-created sets by users that are handpicked for their creativity and are set up for a vote during the Battle Pass season. Depending on which sets get the most votes, they will be added to the coming year’s Battle Pass as part of their Collector’s Cache, which is exclusive to Battle Pass users.
During the past few years, Collector Cache sets have been the best that the community had to offer. Some sets were amazingly creative, adding to a hero’s mystique or modifying them in ways you wouldn’t think imaginable. That tradition carried on this year as well, but only to an extent. Some of the new skins in the Diretide 2022 Collector’s Cache vote choices are absolutely not what we have come to expect from the community creators.
A perfect example of a skin choice that has fans divided is this Marci set that was included in the Collector’s Cache voting choice.
