Millions of people are in lockdown, so they have nothing to do but to entertain themselves. Even those gamers who quit Dota 2 long time ago decided to stick to the old routine.

This news should be great for Valve platform where the number of Dota 2 gamers were plummeting in January. Generally, the numbers of players get higher in winter, but this winter was marked with a different tendency. Many people have started saying that the game is dying.

Current situation

The current Coronavirus situation is threatening enough, but the games like Dota 2 make it easier for people to get rid of stress. The player base of Dota 2 reached its pick in 2015 and 2016. Since that time, the numbers keep bouncing up and down. When Dota Auto Chess was released, the game was marked with some of its highest numbers. After TI9, the game was separated from Dota 2. Eventually, Dota 2 has turned into an independent game, with the additions of Dota Underlods, and Teamfight Tactics.

The numbers in January were hardly reaching 370,000, while some reputable Dota 2 video makers developed some videos of the possible explanations to the existing trends. They established a new hashtag to save Dota 2, and called players to develop memes about the game and share them on social media.

Luckily, many die-hard Dota 2 enthusiasts accepted the invitation. They started developing memes and even spammed the feedback sections of the biggest YouTuber Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg. They were referring to him to encourage him to review the game in hopes of boosting the customer base. That is the case when dropping the BattlePass earlier than intended might be one of the most reasonable ways to reach the goal.

Hopefully, the right solution will be found. With all the way passed, a giant gaming resource like Dota 2 doesn’t deserve to disappear from the gaming arena forever.
