Level 2000 Collector's Baby Roshan



Announcing a new exclusive physical reward available to all Battle Pass owners who reach Battle Level 2000, the Collector's Baby Roshan statue! Additionally, as a way to show off your achievement in-game, all Level 2000 players will have a custom version of Roshan replace his default form.

To claim your 8.5cm x 9cm, nickel silver-finished Baby Roshan at Level 2000, please ensure that you have visited the Collector's Aegis registration site to provide your shipping and contact information for the Level 1000 Reward. You will need to use your Steam account credentials in order to access the site, and the same shipping information will be used to send both the Collector's Aegis and Collector's Baby Roshan.

If you have a Level 2000 Battle Pass and previously registered for this year's Level 1000 reward, you're already set.

Deliveries are limited to one statue per registered account and will begin this fall. Registration is required to receive your Baby Roshan, so make sure to sign up before August 25th. Once registration closes, enrolled players will be contacted with more information regarding shipment and customer support.

Please note that all communication regarding your shipment will be sent to the email address you provide during registration, so make sure to provide accurate shipping and contact information.

Like the in-game Aegis effect, the custom in-game Roshan will expire on May 1, 2018.

The International Approaches



With The International Group Stage just eleven days away, it's time to unveil more information on the talent, schedule, and events surrounding of the biggest tournament of the year.

Tournament News
You can find the Casters for this year's event—featuring long-time favorites like Kaci and a new host in Sean "Day9" Plott—through the dashboard or in the Talent section of the Compendium. We've also launched the official tournament website today, and the full schedule and format are as follows:

  • Group Stage: August 2nd – August 5th, 2017 – Two best-of-two groups of nine teams. Top four teams in each group advance to Upper Bracket, four - eight advance to Lower Bracket, bottom in each group is eliminated.
  • Main Event: August 7th – August 12th, 2017 – Like last year, 16 teams battle through a best-of-three double elimination playoff. Lower bracket first round is best-of-one, Grand Finals are best-of-five.

Newcomer Stream
Once the event begins, you can help any friends interested in learning more about Dota by sending them to the Newcomer Stream, which features the main broadcast enhanced with contextual overlays that call out information helpful for understanding the intricate world of Dota during the most exciting time of the competitive season.

Pubstomps
There's nothing better than enjoying The International with friends. But not every fan can make the journey to Seattle to witness the tournament in person. To help people around the world connect with each other for their own celebratory Dota events, we've once again partnered with Barcraft United to facilitate Pubstomp administration. Just visit the Barcraft landing page to find a Pubstomp in your area.

The International 2017 Opening Reel
Each year, fans celebrate Dota together at tournaments and in gatherings around the world. This year we'd like to incorporate some more aspects of the worldwide celebration into the Opening Reel video that starts the tournament broadcast each day (check out last year's video for reference). If you've taken video footage at past Valve events that you'd like to see included in The International broadcast, please head over to the Opening Reel Guidelines page to submit your video for consideration. Each day of the event will feature different footage, and we'll be accepting new submissions—including new footage from this year—until August 11.


Battle Pass Season Extension
Players may have noticed that the Battle Pass Season was recently extended from the original end date of August 20 to help accommodate the delay in releasing Act I of the Siltbreaker campaign. While our initial extension was made knowing the delay would also affect the release of Act II, today we're extending the Battle Pass Season until Monday, September 18 to ensure players have ample time to enjoy the conclusion of the multiplayer campaign once it releases shortly after The International.

The New Journey

About This 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.
