Three new official events have been added to the Dota 2 events calendar, according to an announcement by Valve. The action will begin this Fall with Dota Major Championships. Seasonal events take us to the annual International Championships every Summer.
The news was announced over at the official Dota website in a post saying:
These marquee tournament events will see top teams competing at premier venues around the world. There will be limited trade periods during the year for participating teams. As the Fall event approaches, more tournament details will be announced.
These events will be sponsored by none-other than Valve and are going to be hosted by third-party organizers. Also, said events will be held on different locations across the globe.
