Dota 2 International: No tickets? No problem
The 2015 DOTA 2 International Championships are already underway this week (8/3 - 8/8) at the KeyArena at the Seattle Center as 16 teams face-off for a chance to place first for the grand prize $6.49 million of the $18 million prize pool. Many fans of DOTA 2 are tuning in already.
If you missed your chance to reserve a ticket for you and your friends, that's not a problem. The main championship event is available to fans via other resources. For those who want to see the entire show live, they can check it out through live streams through services such as Steam, YouTube, Twitch, or even on WatchESPN. You can also sit down your friends who don’t know Dota and have the Newcomer Show fill them in on the basics during a special broadcast every day so that you can focus on the end of the last match. Spread the Dota love, all in the comfort of your home.
What, you can’t fit all of your friends all onto one couch? No worries, Dota has you covered there, too. Fans in the U.S. this week can exclusively check out the Grand Finals in one of hundreds of local theaters all across the country. And for fans all over the world, fans are teaming up to create local events called Pubstomps in several countries. Just select your country from the list and check out the matches with your fellow Dota fans.
Then, after a long day of Dota (or if you missed a match), you can always check out the previous day’s complete broadcast and replay your favorite matches online. Relive every throw-down all over again, and stay tuned to the DOTA 2 Twitter account for live updates on upcoming matches and events.
