The International Singapore

As the current DOTA Pro Circuit (DPC) season’s last Major draws to a close, DOTA 2 players are preparing for the biggest prize in DOTA 2, The International (TI). Fans just heard about the 12 professional teams that have received direct invitations to the main stage from Valve, along with ticket details for this year’s version. The International is one of the greatest esports competitions of the year, and practically every edition breaks the previous record for the largest prize pool. This time, TI will take place in Singapore’s Garden City, making Southeast Asia the first region in which the DOTA 2 championship has ever been held.

Similar to TI10, teams that have a sufficient number of points from Regional Leagues and Majors that are sponsored by the event will be invited to the International 2022. Many DPC points were up for grabs in the current PGL Arlington DOTA 2 Major.

Before the start of the PGL Arlington Major, PSG.LGD, OG, TSM FTX, and Thunder Awaken had gathered enough points to secure a direct invite. Others followed after favorable results in the ongoing tournament brought them the required points.

Valve has also finally revealed ticket information for DOTA 2 players to watch their favorite teams live and in person compete for the Aegis of Champions. The recent press statement mentions that tickets will be sold in a single wave beginning at 10:00 am SGT/ 2:00 am GMT/ 7:30 am IST on August 13.

Each customer will be allowed a maximum of five tickets for each date. Those who reside in Singapore can choose to avail courier delivery or will-call pickup for their purchases. Everyone else will only have to pick up their tickets at will-call.

Valve further explained that the event had been split into two separate sections. The Playoffs (October 20-23), held at the Suntec Convention Center in Singapore), will feature “the top 16 teams in DOTA 2 as they battle for a spot in the Finals.” Tickets will be sold separately for the four days and cost S$88.

The Finals Weekend (October 29-30) will showcase the four remaining teams vying to capture the Aegis of Champions. This section will be held at the Singapore Indoor Station. Tickets are priced at S$498, with a single allowing entrance for both days.

Tickets will be available at Ticketmaster here. Valve advised DOTA 2 players to set up an account beforehand, so they face no hiccups or delays when the sale comes live.
