Once again the Aegis of Champions hangs in the balance — The International Dota 2 Championships kick off in less than one week’s time. Join the fun by choosing your favorite players and teams, supporting the casters and talent by purchasing autographs, voting for the community’s award-worthy short films, and much more.
The Compendium Reward Line
The International Compendium is your interactive guide to this year’s tournament, and it’s loaded with new and returning features that are free to all players. Advance along a brand-new reward line featuring The International 2021 Lineage Treasure, which includes nine previously-released hero sets reworked into this year’s distinctive black and gold. Claim a commemorative emoticon immediately at Level 1, and earn more levels to access a new custom HUD skin, loading screens, and teleport effects for your favorite team.
Earn Compendium Points to move along the reward line in many different ways:
- Make your Tournament Predictions.
- Fill out your Player Card rosters.
- Choose your Fantasy lineups for each day.
- Once the Group Stage has ended, fill in your Bracket Predictions for the Main Event.
- While watching matches during the Group Stage and Main Event, try your luck at In-Game Predictions and earn 100 Compendium Points per correct prediction, up to six per day.
- Join a Supporter’s Club.
This reward line is only available until the tournament is over, so make sure to submit all your predictions and check in frequently to make the most of it.
2021 Talent Autographs
New for this year, support your favorite casters and talent by purchasing their Talent Autographs. A base-level autograph costs $0.99, and features the talent’s picture and signature on an item that you can feature on your profile for others to see. You can also level up the autograph for $0.99 per level to unlock additional rewards. Reaching level 5 unlocks a custom chat wheel line directly from the talent, and levels 10/20/50 unlock bronze, silver, and gold borders that allow you to show off your fandom in style. The autograph is permanent, the chat wheel line is usable until The International 2022. 50% of all Talent Autograph sales go directly to the talent.
The International Website
This update features the unveiling of the all-new website for The International, located at dota2.com/esports/ti10. Watch live matches and VODs, check out tournament standings and upcoming matches, and view team details and stats all in one spot.
While today’s focus is squarely on the upcoming tournament, The International section is only one part of the new Dota 2 esports website at dota2.com/esports. This site will be the source for all DPC action including the regional qualifiers, Majors, and The International itself.
Short Film Contest
The International is not just a tournament featuring the best Dota players in the world — it’s also a celebration of the Dota community as a whole. And nothing exemplifies this community more than the talented filmmakers who create entries for the annual Short Film Contest and the enjoyment of fellow fans.
The finalists have been selected, and these top submissions are now available for voting within the Dota client. The winning entries will be showcased on the big screen at The International — meaning your votes will decide who deserves the top prize of $25,000.
