    Dota 2 Championships: First Public Showing at gamescom

    Valve today announced The International. This tournament will
    be the first time Dota 2 is shown in public, and will take place
    August 17th -21st at gamescom in Cologne, Germany.

    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 tournament will be broadcast in four languages (Chinese,
    German, Russian, and English) free of charge. The winning team
    will receive $1 million.
    “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.â€

    In addition to the cash prizes awarded by Valve, NVidia is providing
    all the hardware for the event.
    Dota 2 will be available for the PC and Mac later this year.

    One of the beta tester announced that the set up file comes around 3GB for DotA 2, that's way too high, I signed up within half an hour after they posted for Beta :p

    Valve could have included a small single player campaign. :(

    I know the game has a very good Visual when compared to other games (LOL, HON) but still 3GB is way to high for a Multi-Player.... And more over the player disconnect and reconnect, AI auto taking the Player character who left the game in-between everything is there in LOL and still its around 900MB to the max, maybe the new Dominion map may increase the size of the game to 1.5 GB to the max..... Considering the size 3GB its way to high according to me....

    Hehe. You obviously haven't played Team Fortress 2. That's 10 GB.

    Developers don't care about high file sizes anymore, since everybody but us indians have high speed unlimited connections.

    Come to think of it, VAVLe is the last company you would expect to do that. . Co-Op maybe. .

    I presume you havn't played Dota much Gannu? (Pardon me for my ignorance, if you have infact played the game before! :p)

    It cannot have a single player campaign as the game, from it's humble beginnings, was always designed to be team based with elements from both rpg, and rts games mixed together (Making the model unique). Although, AFAIK, Dota 2 will have a better dedicated bot support than Dota with which you can play singleplayer (to practice and get to know the game, before jumping into the multiplayer bandwagon! :D). Even this limited single player functionality is provided as a means to eventually land up the player in the online/LAN "mainstream" that the dota community has always been about! :) (Bots can never replace the intuitiveness and versatility that a human mind can have, including stupidity and suicidal tendencies I might add :p)

    Nope you are absolutely right. I haven't played DOTA before and missed out on Warcraft III as well assuming this was more like a MMORPG title than the regular RTS one. :(
