Featuring schedules, team rosters, and the as-of-yet undecided results, Valve’s Dota 2 tournament “The International”, taking place at Gamescom 2011 tomorrow, now has its very own webpage! It’s even got a small area for Dota 2 beta applications – you can send in your Steam account to Valve, and as the beta draws closer, you’ll be contacted with details on your beta status. Because of this, it seems like it won’t really be a completely public beta, a bit like CS:S’s beta update in May of 2010, which was public, but was similarly restricted to only a certain number of players. That was largely “first come, first serve”, but we don’t know if Valve will have any other criteria here.
The championship starts tomorrow, so be sure to check out the schedule and find out when and how to tune in. The first four matches, of groups A and B, will be at 10:00 AM CET (GMT+2 time). I know I’ll be definitely watching it, and reporting on it straight to you guys. Even if there’s the slim possibility some of you guys may not really care about Dota 2. Well, let’s hope Valve manages to get you guys interested! In any case, check out the tournament webpage here.
