Tickets for The International go on sale tomorrow and we wanted to answer a few questions we've seen come up often:

Q. How many tickets can I buy?
Ticket purchases are limited to 5 per household.

Q. Can I sit anywhere or are there preassigned seats?
Yes, you can sit anywhere.

Q. Can VIP ticket holders access the After Party if they're under 21?
The After Party is limited to VIP ticket holders that are 21 and over. There are no restrictions for the other VIP ticket features.

Q. Can I trade my ticket if I can't attend?
Yes, but please note that if you're picking up your badge from Will Call, you will have to contact Ticketmaster and request a badge holder name change.

Q. I'm not attending, does this mean I won't be able to purchase the new items sold at the venue?
Some items will be available on the Dota 2 Store during the event. More details to come.

Q. I'm a Workshop Contributor, will there be a place for me at the International?
This year we'll be setting aside a larger space for Contributors to meet fans, work together, and show off their creations. If you're interested in participating, we'll have a signup space for you soon. In the meantime, make sure you purchase your ticket when they go on sale on Friday.

About the Game

Dota is a competitive game of action and strategy, played both professionally and casually by millions of passionate fans worldwide. Players pick from a pool of over a hundred heroes, forming two teams of five players. Radiant heroes then battle their Dire counterparts to control a gorgeous fantasy landscape, waging campaigns of cunning, stealth, and outright warfare.

Irresistibly colorful on the surface, Dota is a game of infinite depth and complexity. Every hero has an array of skills and abilities that combine with the skills of their allies in unexpected ways, to ensure that no game is ever remotely alike. This is one of the reasons that the Dota phenomenon has continued to grow. Originating as a fan-made Warcraft 3 modification, Dota was an instant underground hit. After coming to Valve, the original community developers have bridged the gap to a more inclusive audience, so that the rest of the world can experience the same core gameplay, but with the level of polish that only Valve can provide.

Get a taste of the game that has enthralled millions.
