The International 2023: Community Celebrations and Updates
Pubstomps and the Global Dota Community
With the highly anticipated arrival of The International 2023 just around the corner, the Dota 2 community is gearing up for an unforgettable event. The excitement is palpable as teams prepare to make their way to Seattle. Ticket sales have been brisk, with the Road to the International (Oct 20-22) tickets completely sold out, and only a limited number remaining for The International (Oct 27-29). As the world prepares to witness the clash of titans, there are several exciting announcements and reminders to share.
Pubstomps: A Global Dota Tradition
One of the cherished traditions in the Dota 2 community is the concept of “pubstomps.” These events provide Dota fans with the opportunity to gather, watch the matches together, and revel in the excitement of the tournament. This year, there’s an exciting twist. For the first time, select pubstomps from around the world will be featured live in the official TI broadcast. Details on how this integration will work will be revealed closer to the event. Dota enthusiasts who want to host a pubstomp and be part of the broadcast should keep an eye out for registration details.
The Short Film Contest: Celebrating Creativity
The Short Film Contest is always a highlight of The International, and this year is no exception. With a record-breaking number of entries, the competition promises to be fierce. The submitted films have been meticulously reviewed, and approximately twenty of the finest creations will be available for viewing and voting within the Dota 2 client from September 29th to October 9th. The community’s voice matters, as the top ten entries chosen by fans will be showcased during The International. Additionally, the overall winners of the contest will be unveiled during the tournament, adding an extra layer of excitement.
Cosplay Contest: Embrace Your Inner Hero
Cosplay enthusiasts, take note! The Cosplay Contest for The International 2023 is open for sign-ups until midnight CST on Sunday, October 1st. This year’s contest is generously sponsored by SteelSeries, offering not only cash prizes totaling $20,000 USD but also a fantastic array of SteelSeries gear for the winners. An essential point to remember is that participation in the cosplay contest doesn’t require a tournament ticket. Even if you’re not attending the event in person, you can still be part of this thrilling competition. Those selected as top-ten finalists will receive three-day passes for themselves and a guest.
The Road Ahead
As the countdown to The International continues, the excitement within the Dota 2 community is building to a fever pitch. Whether you’ll be joining the live audience at the Seattle Convention Center’s Summit Building and Climate Pledge Arena or tuning in from the comfort of your home, this year’s tournament promises to be extraordinary. Keep an eye out for the release of the new International Compendium next week, packed with event-focused features and rewards. The world of Dota 2 is coming together once again, and it’s an event you won’t want to miss.
