    Announcement

    Well, competitive DOTA fans all knew it was coming, and Valve officially announced it today together with the patch! The spectacular and highly successful event is going to return to Seattle as a 5 day main event, which is an improvement from the 3 day main event from the last TI.

    Twelve teams will received invites, and three other teams will be decided through qualifers (East, West and Wild Card). The West qualifiers are going to be hosted by The GD Studio, who hosted a spectacular DreamHack Invitiational, and the East Qualifiers by the Beyond the Summit Studio, who I feel are the leading studio for the Asian scene.

    Previous year's Champions, iG has already received an invite during the week. Who else do you think are gonna get invited? And who do you think will win the qualifiers?

    Of course you will :) Bet they'll take a ton of lessons from the weekly LCS competition from LoL, how to stream/organize their event.

    Might watch a game or 2, even though I'm a big noob in DOTA2. It'll be enjoyable.
