The International 2012 has started


The Biggest annual DotA 2 tournament has begun and it is hosted by Valve at the Benaroy Hall in Seattle. 16 teams are invited to tournament and top the 8 receive prize money. Last year the Ukrainian Natus Vincere (Na'Vi) won first place and $1 million dollars in prize money. EHOME (China) came in second and walked away with $250,000, while Scythe Gaming (Singapore) placed third and won $150,000. This year the prize pool is the same ($1.6 million), and last year’s champions are here to defend the title. The main contenders for the title from Natus Vincere will be DK, who are called the “Galacticos” for making huge transfers, Complexity gaming who won The Defense 2 (6,000€ tournament), and mTw who won Dreamhack in the summer of 2012.
