Valve has officially launched the start of The Year Beast Brawl Event for Dota 2 tonight.

The event includes new awards that also includes new couriers and loading screens. Also, those Ability Points mentioned above? You can either do a variety of in-game activities to earn them or spend real world money! Yep, you can get 1,000 AP for $3.99 (USD), 2,400 AP for $7.99, or an "Arcana Bundle" for $27.99. Valve is going to make so much money off of that if only for those looking to get the pup pet.
