Valve has finally decided to ban Dota 2 players using Overplus

Lately, there has been a widespread ban wave in the Dota 2 community specifically aimed at users of a tool called Overplus. According to discussions among players, Overplus was used to gain an unfair advantage in the game by allowing users to change skins and access pre-draft player information. As a result, those who used Overplus for these purposes have been permanently banned from the game.

Some players used Overplus to gain an unfair advantage by accessing detailed information about their opponents’ previous matches and performances. This enabled them to make counter-picks and decisions before the game even began. However, this capability bypassed the intended game mechanics and privacy settings of players, and Valve, the developer of Dota 2, has taken measures to crack down on it.

The recent ban wave has not spared high-profile players, including professional and highly ranked individuals. Notable players such as Limitless and TORONTOTOKYO have been mentioned in discussions about the bans, indicating that the impact of this action reaches into the upper echelons of the Dota 2 competitive scene. The community has welcomed this move, with many players expressing satisfaction that actions have been taken against what they see as cheating or unfair gameplay practices.

The response from Valve, including the introduction of new cheat detection methods and the implementation of this significant ban wave, suggests a strong stance against unfair advantages and cheating in Dota 2. This action has been described as gratifying by many in the community, who see it as a step towards cleaner and more fair competition within the game.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
