Dota 2 is Giving Away a Free Arcana to All Active Players to Celebrate TI11
Dota 2 Players are in for a big surprise as Valve has just announced that it is giving away multiple free gifts (including an Arcana) to celebrate The International 2022 (TI11). Valve is giving away a level 1 Battle Pass (or 24 levels to Battle Pass owners), one month of Dota Plus, and a free Arcana from the Dota 2 store to hype the Dota fans ahead of the finals.
“Our goal is to harness the excitement of The International Grand Finals and ensure that the days and weeks following the event's conclusion offer fans the very best time to play Dota,” said Valve in its announcement of the ‘The International Swag Bag.’
There is one catch though, players will have to play (or have played) at least 10 Dota matches during the Battle Pass season which is said to last until January 2023.

It is a fairly straightforward process to claim the three freebies that Valve is offering to its players:
