The teams have been invited, and the Qualifiers have ended. All that remains is to prepare for the battles to come. Now, we can reveal what form those battles will take. Head over to The Path to The Dota 2 Championship page and learn about each stage of the tournament, from the phases within the Playoffs all the way to the Grand Finals at the Main Event in KeyArena.
The eleven Immortal Compendium rewards have been released.
Compendium owners will find Immortal Strongboxes in their Armory. Strongboxes work just like our new Treasures, granting no duplicate items for the nine primary Immortals. Each Treasure also has a chance of granting up to two bonus Immortals.
Each Compendium comes with one Immortal Strongbox and about every ten levels you are awarded an extra Treasure. You can level up your Compendium by performing tasks and by purchasing extra points.
It’s been only twelve days since the Compendium launched, and already the prize pool for The International has risen to astonishing heights, rocketing beyond the $6,000,000 stretch goal. Now we’re introducing several new stretch goals to aim for. Head over to the Compendium website to learn more.
Haven’t bought a Compendium? Now’s the time make your mark on the biggest Dota 2 event of the year. Activate your Compendium to get the Evolving Battle Point Booster, Couriers, Loading Screens, HUD, a vote for which hero will receive the next Arcana item, upcoming Immortal items, and much more.
In tournament news, congratulations to NAR and Arrow Gaming for conquering their region’s qualifiers and earning their way to Seattle! The China and Europe qualifiers are happening this week, so be sure to tune in and catch some incredible games.
The first season of Fantasy League is here! Get your rosters and teams ready before the start of the league this May 19th. But what is fantasy league? I hear you say. Well we have created a website just for you (yes you).
If you have a Compendium then you already have a ticket to access the league. Just head over to the community tab and you’ll find the Fantasy League options.
Whoa! You guys are breaking all kinds of Compendium records. Nine Stretch Goals have already been unlocked with a tenth looming on the horizon.
Today we shipped Loading Screen Treasure and are in the process of granting it to Compendium owners. As for other rewards, we’re putting the finishing touches on the Special Edition HUD and the Immortal Rewards are also coming along nicely.
You’ll also notice the Arcana Vote has been unlocked and is ready for input on your Compendium. This voting is unique in that you vote for your favorite hero in each of the 16 groups to ensure their survival. Those that remain will then be pitted against each other in a single-elimination voting deathmatch to determine which will receive the next Arcana.
We’ve also updated The Compendium website to reflect the current release state of each Stretch Goal.
And, for those still thinking about getting a Compendium, yes, you will receive all Rewards regardless of when you make your purchase.
