When we first announced the Interactive Compendium, we hoped it would be something that Dota players would be interested in. Shortly afterwards, we were forced to admit we underestimated the community’s response to it. Upon reflection, we decided that the … Continue reading →

For some teams, you can see the determination and seriousness in their faces.  For LGD, they wear their dedication in their style with new haircuts - the Dota 2 Logo cut into the side of their heads.That dedication and determination comes from losing their invite this year and having to qualify and reprove themselves to The International, the Dota 2 community, and themselves.

That comes from NAVI's ability to learn and adjust during the tournament making them more dangerous in the later rounds.Which brings up an important point, the physical toll of a long tournament.  Yao insists that winning teams need both the mental and physical endurance to win it all.  They will get to prove if they have what it takes very soon.

Posting a picture of TongFu always generates a huge amount of excitement and this fan favorite team is looking to focus that excitement on The International.There are just a few problems, what happened at the Alienware Cup?  What happened last year at the International?  When we asked Hao this, his response was quick, honest, and to the point.

Travel to The International impacts almost all of the teams.  The change in time zones, the distance, unfamiliar surroundings all cause each team to try and compensate.  Some teams shift their training schedules to get ready - Zenith also shifted their schedule but for another reason.

When we asked teams to pick their top 4 for The International, DK is almost always on the list.  When Ohaiyo from Orange picked who he was most excited to meet at his first International - he named BurNIng from DK.So with all the accolades, why is it that BurNIng feels they are being over shadowed by the other Chinese teams?   Continue reading →

We say it is 16 teams descending on Seattle for The International but there are 17 in Bellevue today.  Two of those teams, Quantic and RattleSnake,  will play a best of 5 playoff to secure that final 16th position. Continue reading →

Related to *juice*. The Orz like *sauce*, which they seem to acquire through killing: "After the *dancing*, Orz think you will make good *special sauce*. Maybe even for other Orz *party*." It would seem this is likely to be something sinister. The Orz apparently wish those who take part in *parties* to enjoy the *sauce*, as in the above quote, or in their parting words from random encounters: "Do not forget to *enjoy the sauce*."

While some teams have a language barrier by having two nationalities on their team, LGD International lives up to the International part of their name by being based in China and having a team comprised of players from Canada, America, Denmark, Sweden, and Russia. Continue reading →

One month is your average time for a boot camp before The International.  A few teams even talked about the tensions that can rise by having a longer camp.  Fnatic broke all the rules by running theirs for two months. Continue reading →

Orange has a rookie on their team - Ohaiyo.He is a good example of a rookie's experience at The International.  He relies on other teammates who have been here before to help him navigate the event.  Things like - donít lose your passport and most importantly relax. Continue reading →
