Dota 2 takes the unique blend of online RTS and RPG action that has made Dota popular with tens of millions of gamers and expand upon it in every way.

The International features the 16 best Dota teams in the world competing in the Dota 2 Championships through a group stage, double elimination playoff format over the course of Cologne's five-day trade show.

"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."
