Surprises for Dota 2 Fans
Valve is expected to offer a lot of surprises for all Dota 2 fans. Currently, Valve is preparing a registration page for TI12 pubstomps. This page will allow fans to participate in different live events. This way, all fans who cannot attend TI can have a unique tournament experience.
The goal was to create a strategy allowing all fans to enjoy the tournament as if they were there. This is why there will be live crossovers with selected pub stomp activities throughout the TI.
On the other hand, it has been reported that this year, Valve has received many short films. So, the best 20 will be revealed to the public, and the community will have to vote for the best 10. All these short films can be seen from September 29 to October 9. But that’s not all. It has also been announced that the cosplay contest will offer a significant cash prize. The contest winners can take home a share of the $20,000 prize purse and benefit from the tournament sponsors.
