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.
Contribute to The International’s overall prize pool while making tournament predictions and earning rewards as the total reaches each stretch goal. This year, you’ll earn even more rewards as you level up your Compendium by watching games, collecting player cards, and more. It’s the next-best thing to being there. Head over to the Compendium website for details.
Introducing the Teams of The International.
The first of the four Regional Qualifiers is just two weeks away and as always will be available to watch for free inside the Dota 2 client. Here are the dates for all the events:
- Americas Qualifier: May 12-15 12:00PM EST
- Southeast Asia Qualifier: May 16-19 12:00PM SGT
- China Qualifier: May 20-23 12:00PM CCT
- Europe Qualifier: May 24-27 12:00PM CEST
You will also be glad to know that the Spring Cleaning update is out.
Ah, spring! The birds chirp, the flowers bloom, Ursa leaves his den, and Dota 2 gets a shiny new update. In this single-day event, we’ve taken the wraps off the 6.81 gameplay adjustments. Check out the changes coming to your favorite heroes in the changelog.
Plus, we called in a few exterminators and squashed a pretty mean colony of bugs throughout the game. The update page has the gooey details.
Once the update is released next week, you’ll also find two new Treasures available. Unlike previous Treasures, these are purchased directly from the Dota 2 Store, and do not require a seal to open. Simply purchase, then crack it open to obtain one of several new hero sets.
Meanwhile, in tournament news, we’re about two weeks away from The International’s Regional Qualifiers. Stay tuned for more information on the Teams and match times.
