Dota 2 Debuts with The International Championship at Gamescom
The tournament will be held through a group stage, double elimination playoff format over the course of Gamescom's five-day trade show from August 17 - 21 in Cologne, Germany.
From the official blog:
“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.”
