You can click 'No Thanks!' but this still doesn't take away from the fact that Valve just slipped in-game ads into their games. The title of the post in the DOTA2 subreddit is pretty harsh, and rightly so: "Valve has now introduced IN-GAME ADS, I hope nobody is ok with this."

What do you think about Valve introducing in-game ads to DOTA2?
