Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is DotaPlus?

DotaPlus is an Overwolf app that gives you player-by-player statistics of everyone in the match, allowing you to know their strengths and weaknesses. These stats will include games played, win rate, XPM, and GMP for both their chosen heroes and that player’s account overall.

2. What are the future plans for DotaPlus?

This is the first version of DotaPlus and it’s still in Beta. We will be actively updating it with new features and make sure it stays up to date with each new patch of Dota2.

3. How do I use the app?

The app auto-launches whenever you start a match. Simply hit Alt+` to see your stats.

Here’s a quick 30 seconds video tutorial.

A more detailed flow:
a. Once all players have accepted the match, you’ll get this window:

b. You can hit Alt+` while waiting for the Picking Phase and check who you’re up against.
c. Once a player has locked a hero, the relevant Hero stats for the last 3 months will be updated.
d. You can use the app anytime during a match. Hit Alt+` to hide it.

4. Is it free?

Yes.

5. How do you make money?

We might add a sponsor to the app, displaying their logo on it.

6. How does it work?

The app uses Overwolf and Steam API. The stats are taken from Dotabuff.com 

7. Will I get banned / VAC’ed?

The app is just an overlay of public info. This means that we display public info on your screen. We don’t change or remove any files whatsoever. You can basically go to Dotabuff and check 10 different profiles and that would be the same as what this app does. However, we don’t have any official “approval” from Valve regarding the validity of the app.

8. Why do I see “Private profile” in the stats?

Getting a ‘’Private profile” message means that the players stats are not publicly available. By default, players’ stats are not visible to others.
If you’d like to make your stats available, please do the following:

1. Open Dota
2. Click on “Settings” the (cog icon on top left)
3. Under Options make sure the “Expose Public Match Data” is checked

9. Why do I see “No stats for the last 3 months”

The app shows the stat for the last 3 months. In some cases there are no stats on that player due to them being a new player or are playing that hero for the first time.

10. Why do I see “No stats for the last 3 months” but when I click on the user’s profile I see stats?

This happens when a player’s profile was public and then switched to private. When you click on the link, you’ll see old stats.
