First off we would like to thank you all for being a part of making Dotalicious as popular as it is. Without all of you we wouldn't be where we are now and it's a wonderful feeling to have all of your support behind us!
It's been 18 months since we first launched. At that point we had less than 100 members after a month. Now, a year and a half later we have nearly 90,000 members, 2500 DotA 1 games per day meaning a game starts every 30 seconds on average.
We are now proud to continue our expansion by introducing the following:
A premium shop - Here you can improve your experience by upgrading your account to unlock a lot of limited features such as playing 1v1 games, full access to the dungeon without being banned, setting your own welcome messages when joining game lobbies and changing your account name among many other things.
Important to remember is that we will never force you to buy anything. Your current account will always have what is has now and we only wish to extend your experience and not limit it. We will never either give ingame advantages to paying members unlike in some other games Cough *lol* cough...
Dotalicious remains free to use and free to play.
Due to our growth being as big as it is we require a lot more resources these days. Supporting us by purchasing a premium account or one of our item tokens is a way for you to help us pay our bills as well as continue to grow.
Everyone will still gain new features as we continue to implement improvements and new functions while our premium users will be able to use services that require much more of our resources which is why we have to limit them.
To start this off, we will be giving out 200 free 7-day trials later today! So make sure to grab one before they're out.
Get them now in our shop: http://www.dotalicious-gaming.com/index.php?action=dota;area=shop
Things coming soon: (for free of course)
Dota 2 games for the public - Everybody will soon be able to use Dotalicious to organise and find games for DotA 2. This mean a range of benefits for you as a Dota 2 player. You still need your own key as we do not provide one for you.
The new skill level system for Dota 1 - This is currently running in the background and gathering information. It needs to do this a little longer so that we can fluidly start using the new system without any detrimental effects to you, our users like resetting your stats etc.
