It’s almost time for the biggest online gaming event on the world! The Valve DOTA 2 International! Valve just released the dates, teams, compendium and price pool details. All if it follows below…
Just in case you forgot how big game DOTA really is, last year saw a whopping $10 million handed out at to the 1-5th placed teams. Surely this year it will be bigger! This is officially the biggest and most rewarding gaming event ever. The massive prize money is all made possible due to crowd-funding. Here’s a very handy DOTA 2 Championship tournament history, from 2011 to 2015.
You can be part of the whole event by purchasing a compendium ticket, same as with the previous internationals. Every Compendium-related purchase contributes to The International, with a portion of the sale price going straight into the prize pool. As the prize pool grows, everyone who owns The International 2015 Compendium will gain access to new features and be rewarded with new items, including Immortals, desert terrain, and more. Stretch goal reward items will be released soon after they are unlocked. And it doesn’t matter when you buy your Compendium; you’ll earn the unlock rewards regardless of when you make your purchase, so there’s never a bad time to join the celebration.
Here’s the teams that got invited to this years DOTA 2 International 2015. Last years winner Newbee will be back for an attempt at a back-to-back win:
We’re pretty excited! Who do you think will take it this year?
