TI4 has come at last!

With the qualifiers just around the corner, Valve has released this years [compendium](http://www.dota2.com/international/compendium/) which is well worth getting if you play the game. If you don't want to buy the compendium but still want to watch the games, then you can, all of them will be free to watch ingame or on various streaming sites. To see the dates and teams participating check the [announcement page](http://www.dota2.com/international/announcement/) about it. Who are you guys rooting for? Personally I love fnatic and N0tails Meepo plays!

    I am really looking forward to this year's International. I really think that the competition this year will be at all-time high, since there are too many good teams. I hope everything will go well with the new arena, but TI surely lost some of its intimate feeling when they moved it to the Key Arena.

    For TI3, I wanted to attend with a few friends, but one of them didn't get visa in time so we canceled our plans. I really wanted to go this year (even alone), but since they moved it to July this year, I can't go again since I have some other commitments at that time ;_;

    Oh, and what hero is the second from the left? I've never seen it ingame before...

    Anyone interested in setting up a GameBanana fantasy league for TI? I'm unsure if you can set them up yet but it would be cool to have, I think it's 6 people per league?

    It's improved quite a bit from last year, it's pretty cool with its levels and ability to get massive battle boosts.

    Plus the custom in-game effects. If only it's color custom, though. Other than that, I hope I could witness those memorable teamfights on the tournament. Best of luck to all of the competing teams!

    The community has almost already raised $1 million in less that 10 hours, don't forget that's only 25% of the cost, Valve takes 75% and so made almost $3 million.

    Press release from Valve, figured people here may be interested in it.

    **The International Compendium Setting New Records **

    May 12, 2014 - The International Compendium was launched Friday and, within 24 hours, eclipsed the total contribution of last year's debut effort. As a result, this year's total prize pool is already over $3.8 mil, up from $2.8 mil last year, with Compendium sales continuing for another two months.

    The Compendium was first introduced last year for The International as a method for the community to drive up the prize pool beyond Valve's $1.6 mil contribution by purchasing select items, from which a portion of the proceeds was added to the player prize pool.

    To be held July 18th - 21st at the KeyArena in Seattle, WA, tickets to the event were made available late last month and sold out in less than one hour.

    Dota 2 is a free-to-play, online action strategy game created by Valve (Bellevue, WA based makers of multiple game franchises and the leading online distribution platform, Steam).

    This year's tournament will again be broadcast worldwide, free of charge, with play-by-play commentary in multiple languages.

    Strange to see so little hype about TI4 here on gamebanana, when I know for sure that we have quite a bit dota players here. Are people not interested in esports or what?

    I dunno man, I've been pretty hyped since they released the compendium. The leveling thing and massive battle booster is getting me playing a lot more.

    So the prize pool has reached $10 million!

    That means if first place gets 50%, each player will be a millionaire!

    "mobas" are the current fotm, cs had its fair share with esl and other tournaments, it was just not backed by valve to get the BIG slice of esports, just look at lol, even that can get big prize pools, it's just a matter of their companies backing up with official goodies and hats to keep the hype alive (see the big increase in dota2 compendium points? it's when they released the immortal items)
