Ti3全称为The International DOTA2 Championships 3，是全世界目前电竞和dota2界最高奖金的赛事，冠军奖金超过100万美金。（LoL的800万美金的赛事有注水的成分，实际上，他的800万是累积放在奖金池里，不是一次性支付。实际电竞奖金最高的还是dota2国际邀请赛。）
Benaroya Hall isn’t just an amazing place to watch The International because it is a prestigious beautiful building that is home to the Seattle Orchestra, but at game time, it is also filled with friends and of course other dota 2 fans.While not everyone can fit in the hall, you can still watch with friends and other Dota 2 fans as a group. To help you find events, we’ve put up an Official PubStomp page. Here organizers can submit their event to be listed and the community can find ones in their area and sign-up to attend. Make sure to check back for events in your area as more are submitted leading up to The International.
But what if you can’t make it to the event and instead you plan on watching the game from home – only one problem. You don’t own a Windows computer but instead use Mac or Linux? We’ve got you covered. Not only can you now watch games in client on Mac and Linux computers, the complete Dota 2 game is available for Mac and Linux players.
Grab it here.Now that the what and where are covered, here is the when everyone keeps asking for.
