In Dota 2, the hero chat wheel is a unique in-game interface designed to exchange messages between teammates instantly. In addition, you can use it to write to the general chat. Now there are about 90 phrases in the chat ring.
Only Dota Plus subscribers have access to the Hero Chat Wheel. After purchasing the subscription mentioned above, the player gains access to special ranks and categories, after reaching which new replicas are unlocked.
