Hey, Dota fans! Three months ago, we announced the beta launch of the Dotabuff App. The App, hosted on Overwolf’s platform, empowers users with the knowledge and data available on Dotabuff by bringing it into their games.
At launch, the Dotabuff App featured four module options:
We’ve been hard at work since then to expand the tools we’re offering in the App.
Today, we’re pleased to announce the launch of a new Dotabuff App module: Adaptive Items.
This new Adaptive Items module responds fully to the state of your game, personalizing item recommendations so you're equipping your hero for the game you're in.
From the outset of Dotabuff App project, we’ve wanted to provide a range of tools for new and experienced players. This new Adaptive Items module will provide item suggestions for Dota 2 players who want deeper guidance and recommendations suited to their specific game.
When starting a game, post-draft, the Adaptive Items module will display an item build path for you. It is game-aware, meaning it considers your hero and the draft to make the best possible suggestions.
The module highlights the next item for you to buy, giving you an estimate for when you should try to purchase the item. Time to farm, friend!
Each item will also have some informational tags. These identify items that enable farming or fighting to give you direction for what to do once you’ve purchased the item. The tags also flag items that are best for only one player to equip on your team.
Finally, when you purchase the item, the module will feature the next item in your build.
Don't like your item recommendations? Purchase something off the path, and the Dotabuff App will update with a new build based on your current inventory and the current game state.
You can also dismiss the next item in your build path to generate a new set of recommendations or undo a dismissed item to revert back.
Our new Adaptive Items module is the fifth module you can select in the Dotabuff App. With three free available slots, four if you’re a Dotabuff Plus subscriber, you will need to choose your modules wisely!
The Dotabuff App is free and ad-supported. It offers three customizable module slots.
