Closing in on The International

The International Group Stage is just five days away, and as we await the crowning event of the Dota 2 competitive season, it’s time to check in on some of the final details for those watching the event.

Tournament News
As always, you can check out your in-game Compendium for a complete list of Casters and Talent for this year’s event. While you’re there, don’t forget to fill out your predictions for hero picks, team results, player performance, and tournament meta. Predictions lock before the start of Group Stage play.

Today we’ve also launched the official tournament website for The International 2018, your hub for keeping up with the day-to-day of tournament proceedings. As the Group Stage and Main Event progress, you’ll be able to see updated standings and new social media content posted each day from Vancouver.

  • Group Stage: August 15th – August 18th, 2018 – Like last year, two best-of-two groups of nine teams. Top four teams in each group advance to Upper Bracket, five – eight advance to Lower Bracket, bottom in each group is eliminated.
  • Main Event: August 20th – August 25th, 2018 – As before, 16 teams battle through a best-of-three double elimination playoff. Lower bracket first round is best-of-one, Grand Finals are best-of-five.

Media
Eighteen teams from around the world have earned a place in Vancouver for the final test of the Dota competitive season. Look back on their journeys to the tournament with The International Lowdown videos. Multiple videos are already available with more coming each day as we approach Group Stage. Once the tournament begins, check in on what’s happening both on stage and behind the scenes on our media page, which features all content from our Youtube Channel, Twitter feed, and Instagram.

Newcomer Stream
Help friends interested in learning more about Dota understand the tournament flow by sending them to the Newcomer Stream. They’ll be able to watch the main broadcast enhanced with contextual overlays that call out information helpful for understanding the intricate world of Dota during the biggest event of the season.

Pubstomps
There’s no better way to enjoy Dota than watching The International with friends. But not every fan can make the journey to Vancouver to witness the tournament in person. To help people around the world connect with each other for their own celebratory Dota events, we’ve once again partnered with Barcraft United to facilitate Pubstomp administration. Just visit the Barcraft landing page to find a Pubstomp in your area.


Dota Pro Circuit Rewind & The International Lowdown

One week remains until the first battle horns will sound to kick off Group Stage play at The International, and final preparations are well underway.

As the eighteen teams complete their journeys into Vancouver, now is an opportune time to take a look back upon the vastly different roads each has traveled through the Dota Pro Circuit season to arrive at the tournament.

Today, with the help of one SirActionSlacks, we’ll recap all the DPC moments that determined the final standings for the eight direct invites in the new Dota Pro Circuit Rewind.

Starting tomorrow, SirActionSlacks will return each day leading up to the Group Stage to help you catch up on everything you need to know about all eighteen teams and their rosters in his week-long series, The International Lowdown.

Tune in daily August 9 – 14 at 10:00 AM PDT on our Youtube or Twitch channels for a new episode. The International Lowdown will feature three teams each day, and viewers on Twitch will also see select classic matches from the archives of The International.


Immortal Treasure III

Immortal Treasure III has arrived, featuring all-new items for Shadow Shaman, Dark Willow, Queen of Pain, Batrider, Zeus, and Naga Siren.

In addition to these items, each of these treasures you open also offers increasing odds to receive a very rare Golden version of the Queen of Pain item, or an ultra rare bundle for Witch Doctor. You might even unearth a rare haul of Battle Points, or the cosmically rare Emblem of the Crystal Echelon.

All Battle Pass owners can find an Immortal Treasure III ready to unbox in the Armory, and you can earn more treasures by increasing your Battle Level. Check out a preview of the new items and custom effects from today’s treasure over on the Battle Pass page.

This patch also includes an update to The International Compendium revealing this year’s roster of broadcast talents, and a list of today’s bug fixes can be found here.


Meepo Announcer Pack

Today’s update digs up the new Meepo Announcer Pack, available to all Battle Pass owners who pile up enough Battle Points to reach Level 75 and above. Featuring the voices of Meepo, Meepo, and Meepo, this pack replaces the default announcer and mega-kill exclamations with a trio of blue-collar pals ready to offer multiple perspectives on every game.

You can equip the announcers from the Global Items menu in the Heroes tab, and any players who already claimed the bundle from their rewards line can find the now-unlocked item waiting to be opened and equipped in the Armory.


The International 2018 Collector’s Cache Volume II

Unable to be contained by a single treasure, the International 2018 Collector’s Cache expands this year’s collection with the arrival of Cache Volume II.

Available exclusively to Battle Pass owners for $1.99, and brimming with another eleven new item sets—and three rare sets—Volume II of the Collector’s Cache digs even deeper to find new looks for a wide range of heroes.

Unboxing eleven of these treasures automatically grants you 21 Battle Levels. As always, the chances for a rare drop increase with each treasure you open, and each purchase contributes directly to The International prize pool.

As with the previous Cache, this treasure is only available for sale until The International concludes, and the items inside are exclusive and cannot be purchased elsewhere. Each set can, however, be gifted once or recycled for 2,000 Battle Points, and the Ultra Rare is marketable.


Collector’s Aegis of Champions and Baby Roshan Registration


The 2018 Collector’s Rewards registration site is now open.

All Battle Pass owners who reach Battle Level 1000 are invited to receive The International 2018 Collector’s Aegis, and those who reach Level 2000 are also eligible to receive this year’s Collector’s Baby Roshan in addition to the Aegis.

To claim your rewards, please visit the registration site to provide your shipping and contact information. You will need to use your Steam account credentials and have a Battle Level of 1000 in order to access the site.

Your Collector’s Rewards can only be delivered to the address you provide during registration. If you need to change your shipping information after the registration period ends, please contact CMD Collectibles’ Customer Support at support@cmfgdirect.com.

This year’s Aegis deliveries will be spread across two waves of shipments—the first will ship in August, with the second to follow in November. While the Baby Roshan deliveries were initially also scheduled to begin before The International Main Event, due to issues with the first production run, we’re currently working with the manufacturer on a new production, and the Roshan shipments will begin shipping once we are able to ensure that the quality of this reward meets expectations.

Please note that all communication regarding your shipment will be sent to the email address you provide during registration, and failure to provide accurate shipping or contact information may cause fulfillment issues for your Collector’s Rewards.

Registration is required to receive these rewards, so make sure to sign up before the conclusion of The International 2018 Battle Pass season to claim these immortal symbols of the legendary support you have extended in helping make this the premiere tournament in all of esports.
