TI3 Compendium and All-Star Game announced

posted by Sun_Tzu, 348 days ago
Did you feel just a bit detached last year following the International from your home? Wished you had some means to interact with the games, follow statistics and generally engage more with the teams during the event? Well this time around, you'll get all that and more, as Valve have announced that the International Compendium will become available for purchase starting on Tuesday, May 7th at 19:00 CEST (10 AM PDT), with 25% of all revenue going towards increasing the prizepool of the event.




It starts with the Qualifiers, so get it early!


Details are still not all there, but what we know is that the compendium will be a means for you to predict the outcome of games, stats such as most picked/banned hero for a given set of games, starting with the Qualifiers, and much, much more.

The dandiest courier in all the lands!


For those of you who love courier swag, the compendium will naturally have you covered, as Valve have taken the best of what they've learned from doing couriers for various tournament tickets and will be bringing you a evolving, customizable courier which grows as you watch the free to view games within Dota TV.

Support the teams! Buy the Compendium!


And naturally, as with the team pennants from the last international, there will be revenue sharing with the teams, as Valve will contribute 25% of the income from selling the compendium towards the prizepool for the International! Support your favourite game and your favourite teams all in one, while getting great goodies out of it all!

All Star Showmatch!


And of course, for all those of you who choose to buy the compendium when it comes on sale, you will have your say in picking 10 players to participate in an All-Star showmatch! No restrictions seem to be set, so we do not know if only players whos teams ultimately attend the International will be available, or if this will present an additional method for fans to try and send a favourite player (might one suggest, cn Xiang 'LongDD' Huang?) to the event in order to compete in the All-Star game.

Congratulations to TobiWan and Ayesee


joinDOTA would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate au Toby 'TobiWan' Dawson and us Aaron 'Ayesee' Chambers, who both confirmed their participation as official casters for the International today via their twitter accounts.

It is quite possible that it will be limited, but there may still be the option for write-in candidates, so all the Finns can vote for "Aku Ankka" (Donald Duck's name in Finnish, he receives a steady stream of support in all elections in Finland, year after year).

Now I hope for limited options, because we all know who will be picked by our retarded community...

BTS is just a scapegoat for those who hate Tobi (the most awesomest caster in Dota2 ever). Tobi can outperform the BTS guys with hype and btw LD isn't really well-performing unless he's with a pro player (pretty much what you all say about Tobi) and Lumi tries hard when "shoutcasting" and Godz? He's the most exciting caster to hear "/sarcasm".

Btw those who think that Sun_Tzu (or any others) sucks at spellcheck, it's called TYPOGRAPHICAL error. We can correct them to improve the news quality, but flame them? You must be the best newswriter in the world. Dota 2 community needs critiques, not flamers.

Envy did play a fairly big role in the Western scene this year, there's a number of players who may no make it who have played major roles, and if the fans do wish to send them there, I'm not all that opposed to it.

Personally I think Envy would get some votes, but still probably not enough casual support. On the other hand if Empire were not to make it, I'm fairly confident LighTofHeaveN would have a very good chance at being voted into the All-Star game for example. And of course I want the opportunity to show my support for LongDD, as I believe he was robbed of his place of honor on that stage. The least we can do is give him this one game.
