With the next Dota 2 ranked season kicking off, Valve didn’t just talk about matchmaking in their latest blog post. Many players out there will be happy to know that Valve is dishing out Dota 2 ban waves. It is all to get rid of not only those bad apples but also those who purchase accounts and those who are using exploits.
This has been a long time coming and it looks like Valve is really putting their foot down, with Dota 2 bans already being issues to those with low behaviour scores and anyone detected of violating the Steam Service Agreement, specifically, those who purchase or sell accounts. Furthermore, Valve has banned those players that they have detected using exploits to gain an advantage over other players.
Valve explains the Dota 2 ban waves in a recent blog post, stating that:
This isn’t just a once-off thing either, as Valve plans to continue with the Dota 2 ban waves, to the point where they want to issue these ban waves once a week. It is no doubt a big step up from what we’ve seen from the developer in the past and hopefully, they can clean up the game, or at least make it better.
Valve explains their plan for the upcoming Dota 2 ban waves, stating that:
This is exactly what the game needs and it looks like Valve will be throwing their mighty banhammer hard at toxic Dota 2 players that ruin the experience for everyone else.
