The International 3

A Forum Thread for Dota 2

Prize pool over 2.8 million dollars!

Hello and welcome to The International 3. This is the biggest tournament of the year for dota 2 and is run by Valve. The prize pool is the biggest ever for any eSport competition, in part thanks to fans who bought an ingame item to increase the prize pool. Over the next week there will be some of the best dota 2 games played with the worlds best teams facing up to win the first place prize of 1.4 million dollars! You can watch the matches ingame which is now completely released and free to play. If you don't have dota 2 and don't want to download it, you can watch it on twitch. Also the non group stage matches will be streamed on youtube incase twitch can't take the pressure. To find out the schedule, and tons of more information and useful links, check out [this reddit post](http://www.reddit.com/r/DotA2/comments/1jj33f/the_international_3_survival_guide/). During the group stages, there will be 4 games being played at the same time and being cast by 3rd party casters (they are still good casters). Once we are out the group stages, Valve production will take over and be the main casters. So are you guys planning on watching any matches? Which team do you want to win?

This is an outrage! But seriously you can watch all the replays in the game with commentary or all the twitch broadcasts are recorded so you can also watch those.

Oh well, less sleep it is then!

    The grand finals are going to be later on tonight, not sure on the exact time, but I'm guessing it will be around 1am UTC. Make sure you tune in to watch it! Before that is the losers bracket final which should also be awesome.

    Add more salt.
