One of the largest Esports Events of the year, The International, is coming this August and Valve has finally released the all awaited Battlepass with exclusive rewards and special events for DOTA players.
Like previous TI Compendiums, the Battlepass can be purchased in three different versions; Battlepass Standard, Battlepass Level 50 and Battlepass Level 100, each version giving the player a boost in Battlepass levels so they can unlock more rewards; from new custom models, new terrain, announcer packs, sprays, cosmetics and much more!
Along with the introduction of the Battlepass, Valve has also introduced two new special events; Wrath of the Mo’rokai & Jungle Expedition, where players can experience these awesome game modes inside the DOTA 2 Client. They’ve also introduced many new features such as the “Party Finder” and “Avoid Player” along with the voting of the MVP of a match and a new Versus Screen where players can show off their skills and stats before the match begins. A lot of many features are also making a comeback with this TI9 Battlepass such as Weekly Challenges, DOTA 2 Trivia, Wagering, Arcana Vote, Ranked Roles and much more!
And with every TI Battlepass also comes the awesome Collector Rewards; the Aegis of Champions (unlocked at Battlepass LVL 1000) & Baby Roshan statue (unlocked at Battlepass LVL 2000) which also gives the player special in-game effects so they can flex on their foes and make their hero stand out.
The International 2019 begins with the Group Stages on August 15th and the Main Event on August 21st at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai, China. 12 teams will qualify from the DOTA 2 Pro Circuit while 6 teams will qualify from Regional Qualifiers (China, North America, Europe, South America, CIS and South East Asia).
