We are thrilled to announce The International 10 - Dota 2 Championships will be held this October in Bucharest, Romania, and the epic battle for the Aegis of Champions will fittingly unfold inside the country's largest stadium—Arena Nationala. Group Stage will run October 7 - 10, with Main Stage play kicking off on October 12. Then on October 17, the two finest Dota 2 teams in the world will face off for the Aegis and their shares of the $40,018,195 prize pool that awaits. Additional information on ticket sales will come shortly.

We are grateful for the partnership we have formed with Romania and the city of Bucharest, and very much look forward to gathering with the global Dota 2 community, both in-person and virtually, to celebrate the elite players and amazing fandom at The International. Prepare yourselves. At long last, the battle begins.

I don't like the graphics of the update to the original, but the first tournament movie was the best full picture movie, imho. Everything about it was heart felt.

It's played by most of the world. And there's no reason you'd risk "loosing" your friends .

Dota is a game with a steep learning curve that takes years to even start being decent at it. I have a lot of years into it and I'm still trash tier lol. I was 4700mmr a long time ago but that was my peak.

I have played upwards of 800H and still wasn't particularly good at it, loosing friends is somewhat of a joke too, but not far from reality either...
