To put it in perspective...
The DOTA2 tournament is roughly TWICE the TOTAL of ALL tournaments held so far by both HoN and LoL COMBINED.
This is just insane lol. Valve will annihilate all moba $$ style.
VALVE ANNOUNCES "THE INTERNATIONAL"
Dota 2 Championships: First Public Showing at Gamescom
August 1, 2011 — Valve today announced The International. This tournament will be the first time Dota 2 is shown in public, and will take place August 17th -21st at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany.
The International features the 16 best Dota teams in the world competing in the Dota 2 Championships through a group stage, double elimination playoff format over the course of Cologne's five-day trade show.
The tournament will be broadcast in four languages (Chinese, German, Russian, and English) free of charge. The winning team will receive $1 million.
“The International is the first public Dota 2 event and will give the tens of millions of gamers playing Dota around the world their first look at the new game,” said Gabe Newell, president and founder of Valve. “I have had the good fortune to watch the competitors as they prepare for the tournament, and the level of play is extraordinary.”
In addition to the cash prizes awarded by Valve, NVidia is providing all the hardware for the event.
Dota 2 will be available for the PC and Mac later this year. For more information on Valve and its games, please visit http://www.dota2.com/
I'm not sure that this is legit. The site is well presented but the $1m number sounds like total and complete bullshit
Its a smart move from valve
S2 did a fantastic job and i love HoN
But that time is over
And soon it will be time to move on
that's more than all hon tournaments combined.
HoN just died.
How are you going to compete with 1m $ grand prices. And the fact that everyone hate $2 now.
GG!, had my 30min of fun in this game.
This has to be a joke. There will be DOTA 2 championship in less than 3 weeks yet there's not a single in game screenshot out?
