16 DOTA 2 teams are battling for a staggering $18 million. First place will win $6.4 million. Even the 16th placed team gets $54,054. That’s a damn nice payday for playing video games.
The annual DOTA 2 tournament, The International, is entering the elimination rounds today. The tournament began last week, but the stakes are ramping up big time as CDEC Gaming faces off against Cloud 9 in a best of three match.
Millions of people play DOTA 2, but what about the many, like me, who never have. Valve has us covered with a ‘Newcomer Stream.’ A pair of casters explains the ins and outs of DOTA 2 during each match.
– The strengths and weaknesses of each character.
– Why certain hero abilities are being used.
– What items are being bought and why.
– Plus, the overall strategy being employed by each team.
It’s a great stream for those of you who have never played DOTA 2 or are new to the game.
