Valve has revealed details for their third annual DOTA 2 Championships, titled "The International", which will be taking place at Benaroya Hall in Seattle, WA from August 7 to August 11.
The prize pool has yet to be announced however last year the winning team took home $1 million so we'll probably see the same amount this time round. Currently the only team to have qualified in the ladder is Invictus Gaming, the 2012 victors. Just like in last year’s event, the winners of the East and West Qualifiers will each receive an invite. Right before The International begins, the Wild Card event will determine the final spot in a match between the runner-ups of each qualifier.
Once again the event will also be broadcast on a global scale in multiple languages, and free of charge through DotaTV.
