DOTA 2 has released today its latest seasonal Plus update, with a returning feature to pay tribute to a beloved esports caster.
Last Friday, it was announced that Aldrin “Dunoo” Pangan passed away. Naturally, members of the Pinoy gaming community are saddened by the news and will miss his talent.
To honor his legacy in the DOTA 2 scene, developer Valve has brought back catchphrases made viral by Pangan. “Lakad Matatag” and other voice lines are available as guild rewards at the platinum tier.

The new update also introduces the seasonal treasure for this year’s fall season. It brings new cosmetic sets for Vengeful Spirt, Dark Seer, Witch Doctor, and other heroes. A koala courier also has a chance to drop as part of the loot.
