How to Turn On Anonymous Mode in Dota 2
Dota 2 recently added an anonymous mode and it might have gone under the radar of many players. Today we take a look at what it is and how to use it.
Are you tired of talking to people? Do you wish you were left alone to just enjoy a game of Dota 2? Then look no further. The anonymous mode in Dota 2 was added a few days ago and in case you missed it, we’re here to give you an update. To be quite honest it doesn’t add anything that wasn’t available before its release.
What is the Аnonymous Мode?
The anonymous mode allows you to get shelter from social interaction. Everyone on your team and the enemy will be listed as anonymous leaving out their names and avatars. You also won’t be able to see their guilds and any information related to them.
It’s also supposed to limit the messages to
friends only. This doesn’t mean you won’t receive chat messages
from your teammates though. If you want to get the complete
experience of total silence you should go for the mute all chat
How Do I Turn On Anonymous Mode?
All you have to do is go to the Dota 2 settings menu and select social. Anonymous mode is located and the bottom right and you literally can’t miss it.
As we mentioned above, activating anonymous mode alone won’t save you from incoming chat messages. If you’re aiming for that complete radio silence you sometimes need after an intense match then feel free to also tick the “no incoming chat” option. It’s in the same menu on the top left side.
If you've ticked the anonymous mode on, you should see any names or avatars in-game and your end game screen should look something like this.
Anonymous mode is a welcome feature and whether you use it or not is entirely up to you. It’s purely optional and won’t have that much of a significant impact on actual gameplay. Chances are, it’ll mostly be used by streamers in order to avoid attention.
