We've got an interesting field of invited teams for you this month, as the North American juggernaut Team Liquid will be joined by the majority of the teams slated to play in the Western Qualifiers for The International 2013, including dd.Dota who after good results in scrims will be making their first official appearance with their new roster.
Kaipi have been added as the 7th invited team for Bigpoint Battle. Following their success in EIZO Cup, if they make it all the way in Bigpoint as well, they will have bested six out of eight of the Western Qualifier teams, only missing out on facing Evil Geniuses and Team Empire.
