If you’ve been following the DOTA 2 circuit, this week is an important week. It’s when the Group Stages for the biggest DOTA 2 tournament, the International 2018 (or TI8) takes place! From across Eighteen different international DOTA 2 teams (3 of which are from SEA region — TNC, Mineski and Fnatic) only Sixteen will move forward for the main event on the 20th to 25th of August (21-26 for the Philippines) with each team desperately trying to get into the Upper Bracket category to ensure max advantage.
With more than $24 Million Prize Pool (and still growing as of this writing), the International 2018 is shaping up to be one of the biggest TI’s the world has ever seen. And with group stages underway –with crazy team fights happening like Fnatic’s frenzied assault on Liquid for a 39-1 win in favor of Fnatic–thousands of Pinoys are giving up sleep watching livestreams across various channels. There’s a lot to choose from, trust us, but wouldn’t it be nice to watch AND potentially win something at the same time? Say, an Arcana!?!
