On Monday, July 17th 2017, The Valve opened up an online shop called The International 7 Secret Shop powered by WeLoveFine. An online shop that selling Dota 2 merchandise such as trinkets, plush toys, apparel, and much more. But now, the online shop is close because of the high shipping costs. It makes hard for fans to get the merchandise they want at an affordable price.
However, the close of The International 2017’s Secret Shop is temporary until they can fix it. Today, the Valve announced a statement because they want to apologize for the roll out of the Secret Shop. Valve said that they want to figure out how to handle global distribution. And for those who have already purchased orders will continue to receive it or may ask for a refund.
For further improvement, The Valve also said “Providing merchandise for Dota has never been a profit focused endeavor for us. Our goal has been to give easy access to the greatest number of Dota fans possible so they can show their affiliation with the game we all love.”
It’s sad to hear about this statement as we all know that Dota 2 Community has been never doing this before. For now, we can just wait for The Valve to figure out and reopen the Secret Shop again. So that all of the Dota 2 fans can buy the merchandise with an affordable shipping costs.
