Immortal Treasure III

Immortal Treasure III is now available, featuring Viper’s venomous debut onto the item scene, along with all-new items for Weaver, Legion Commander, Spectre, Winter Wyvern, and Sand King. Each Immortal Treasure III you open also offers increasing odds to receive a rare drop of 50 Battle Levels, a very rare Golden version of the Weaver item, or an ultra rare sword for Sven.

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

With The International just around the corner, we’d also like to take a moment to thank the Dota 2 community for the incredible support that has helped this year’s prize pool eclipse past records to become the largest tournament purse in esports history. We look forward to welcoming the players and fans to Seattle for the annual celebration of Dota and the community that helps it thrive.


All-Star Voting and Player Card Packs

All 18 teams are set, and The International is mere weeks away. For those that have earned a chance to compete in Seattle, all thoughts turn to the Aegis of Champions and the opponents that stand in the way of victory. And for a select few, another challenge awaits: The International 2017 All-Star Match.

This year, Battle Pass owners can choose the world’s top players to fill out two All-Star rosters that will clash in a 5v5 Captains Mode match at The International, where the winning All-Star team will walk away with $100,000 in prize money and the prestige that comes with defeating the best of the best. Head to the All-Stars section of the Battle Pass Compendium to create your two strongest All-Star teams. You can select one player per position for each lineup. With 90 players to draft from and just ten roster spots to fill, who will your dream matchups be?

Today’s update also brings Player Card Packs for this year’s Seattle-bound pros. Head to the Battle Pass Compendium to unwrap your card packs and start planning your initial Fantasy Rosters. Slot your favorite pros into Core, Offlane, or Support roles, and earn fantasy points based on their performances in the Group Stage and Main Event of The International.

Complete an entire set of Player Cards for any pro team to be able to set them as your Favorite Team, granting you special TP effects, a profile card, team emoticon, and effigy banner. Collect a full set of either Silver or Gold cards for a team to unlock upgraded versions of each reward.


The 2017 – 2018 Competitive Season

In just six weeks, a new world champion will emerge from Seattle, and for the Aegis bearers and fallen challengers alike, resurgent dreams of success in the upcoming year will already begin to take hold. But the road to The International 2018 will chart a different course through the coming competitive season.

In the past year, we’ve had two Valve Majors shape the competitive landscape leading to The International. However, for the next year we will be taking a more organic approach to growing the competitive ecosystem, working more closely with third-party tournaments. Instead of the previous Major system, we will be selecting many third-party tournaments to directly sponsor. Additionally, players competing in these tournaments will earn Qualifying Points which will be the sole factor in determining invites to The International 2018.

There will be two tiers of tournaments that we sponsor: Majors and Minors. Majors must have a minimum prize pool of $500k, and will receive an additional $500k towards the prize pool from us. Minors must have a minimum prize pool of $150k, and will receive an additional $150k towards their prize pool. In order to ensure a baseline level of competitiveness, and to support teams from different regions around the world, both Majors and Minors will be required to have at least one qualifier from each of the six primary regions (NA, SA, SEA, CN, EU, and CIS). In addition, Majors and Minors must have a LAN finals component to their tournament in order to accommodate teams from the different regions. We will directly manage the schedule of Majors and Minors to help avoid collisions during the year.

Qualifying Points will be awarded based on the total prize pool of a tournament, and whether the tournament is a Major or a Minor, with Majors giving more points per prize pool dollar. The total points per tournament will also partially scale based on the time of year, with tournaments closer to The International awarding additional points. Qualifying Points will be granted based on placing high in Majors and Minors and will accumulate on individual players. Roster lock seasons will still exist, and players switching teams during the approved periods will retain their Qualifying Points. In order to allow for teams recruiting new entrants to the competitive landscape and to facilitate sometimes necessary roster changes between lock periods, only the top 3 point earners on a team will contribute towards a team’s effective total Qualifying Points.

To help teams and fans keep track of standings throughout the year, a leaderboard of individual player Qualifying Points and team Qualifying Point Rankings will be available for everyone to follow along with as teams fight their way towards next year’s International. Best of luck to the teams competing in August, and we look forward to the upcoming season once a champion is crowned.


Kunkka & Tidehunter Announcer Pack

Today’s update rolls out the new Kunkka & Tidehunter Announcer Pack, available to all Battle Pass owners who raise their Battle Level to 75 or above. Featuring the voices of both the seadog Admiral and the lurking Leviathan, this pack replaces the default announcer and mega-kill exclamations with a pair of naval nemeses who always bring the right kind of salt into each 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.

In other news, the Regional Qualifiers have concluded, and we’re just six weeks away from crowning a new champion at The International. Congratulations to all eighteen teams that will make the journey to Seattle. Check out the full list of this year’s competitors on the tournament invites page.

The International Invites

The Dota summer season is in full swing, and it’s time to unveil the six teams that have earned direct invitations to The International.

This year, all eighteen teams that make the journey to The International will compete in the Group Stage, where the tournament field will be divided into two Round Robin groups of nine teams. Upon completion of the Group Stage, the bottom team from each group will be eliminated, and the remaining sixteen will move on to the Double Elimination Main Event at KeyArena.

Make sure to tune in via Twitch or the Dota 2 client to catch the Open Qualifiers on June 22 – 25 and the Regional Qualifiers on June 26 – 29. With countless teams around the world hungering for an invite to Seattle, the battle for the Aegis of Champions is about to begin.
