Dota 2 Officially Launched in South Korea

Another huge step for both Valve and Nexon, Dota2 was finally released in South Korea in the 25th of October precisely at 10AM!

To celebrate the release of the game, Nexon held a Workshop competition for all the creative minds in Korea in which the most voted items by the community will be available to buy on the Dota 2 store. The winner of this competition was the one featured above in this news article, The Ghost Face Warrior Set for Juggernaut.

Even though this country is really tiny in size when compared to the likes of China, USA and Russia, it’s no surprise that it has one of the biggest gaming communities in the world and even produced the biggest amount of champions in other game titles, most notably Starcraft 2.

A few months ago prior to TI3, Nexon announced at E3 a total of 1.7 million dollars for sponsored local tournaments. It has begun with the Nexon Starter League in which gave away its champions FXOpen a 9.000$ cash prize and a free trip to Seattle to attend TI3.

Currently the next tournament, Nexon Sponsorship League is ongoing and can be watched through an ingame tournament ticket or through the livestreams & Beyond The Summit and JoinDota for English commentary and the GomTV for Korean commentary.

There has been a lot of speculation from the Dota worldwide communities regarding South Korean players and how far they can go in competitive Dota, some say they need more time, while others say they will get support from big names in K-pop, some even go as far as saying they can become The International 4 winners.
