Rule number 322: There always is some good Dota 2 action to watch on Twitch. Here are three currently running or upcoming tournaments to enjoy while waiting for The International. While the Qualifiers for The International are over, it is still such a long time to wait for the main action to kick off. There are no major events announced for the upcoming months, so how are we supposed to spend our time then? Luckily, there are a few smaller tournaments that are definitely worth watching to keep us exited for the world championship.
