Dota 2 – The International 2013 Invited Teams Announced

By   /   3 years ago

The biggest tournament of the year in the world of Dota is coming again and Valve has now announced all the invited teams that will attend the event!

Like last year, this tournament will be held in the great Benaroya Hall in Seattle USA with the main games of the tournament being played from the 7th to the 11th of August. If last year there was some doubt around a few of the invited teams like Darer and Absolute Legends, this year’s invites are definitely a lot more solid and there is no doubt that the strongest teams of each region have been chosen to participate!

The 13 Invited Teams are:

  • Invictus Gaming (China) – The International 2012 Winners
  • Natus Vincere (Ukraine) – The International 2011 Winners
  • LGD (China)
  • LGD.Int (International)
  • Orange E-Sports (Malaysia)
  • Alliance (Sweden)
  • Fnatic (Europe)
  • Team Liquid (USA)
  • Zenith (Singapore)
  • Team Dignitas (USA)
  • Virtus.Pro (Russia)
  • DK (China)
  • MUFC (Malaysia)

To fill up the other 3 slots there will be online qualifiers. The winner of the West and the winner of the Eastern qualifier will qualify directly to The International 2013 while both runner-ups of each region will duke it out in Seattle in a best of 5 to determine the 16th team that will play in the competition.

The Western Qualifier will be fully covered by the GD Studio crew and will run from the 13th to the 19th of May. It’s not official, but the teams that will fight for glory are most likely: Evil Geniuses, Mousesports, RoX.Kis, Empire, Kaipi, Absolute Legends, DD.Dota and the fan favorite to win the qualifier, QPAD Red Pandas.

As for the Eastern Qualifier, it will be fully covered by the Beyond the Summit crew and it will commence on the 20th and end on the 26th of May.

Again it’s speculation but according to performances and fanbases, the contenders will be: MiTh-Trust, First Departure, Vici Gaming, Neolution.Int, Rattlesnake, TongFu, RisingStars and either Netolic.SG or the Pinoy squad Mineski.

Keep an eye out on the official Dota 2 Website and be sure to not miss this incredible dose of Dota 2 that will come in the following weeks!
