Dota 2's The International was one of the world's biggest e-sport tournaments ever, and was the first gaming tournament to reward first prize $1,000,000. Now in its fourth year the tournament continues to be one of gaming's biggest events, and Valve has just released all the specifics about attending this year's International. This year's International will be taking place July 18th-21st at the KeyArena in Seattle. Three different tiers of tickets are avaliable. $99 ticket gets you General Admission, $199 gets you a floor seat, and $499 gets you a VIP Ticket, allowing you to attend the Playoffs (taking place on July 8th) as well as VIP Meet & Greets and the After Party. 11 teams will be invited to the tournament directly while the other 5 spots will be filled through Regional Qualifiers and pre-tournament playoffs.
The International 3 was the first big Dota 2 tournament I ever watched and I was hooked instantly. Although I won't be able to attend The International 4 in person I am looking forward to watching the livestreams during all four days. I hope that my favorite team Natus Vincere manages to make it to the finals for the fourth year in a row.
