Dota 2 Short Film Contest

Submissions for the 2017 Dota 2 Short Film Contest are now open, and this year we’ve extended the allowed length of each short film from 60 seconds to 90 seconds. Filmmakers have until the morning of July 25, 2017 to submit their short film creations to the Dota 2 Steam Workshop to be eligible for consideration.

As always, we invite all fans to visit the Workshop to participate in the voting and discussion process to help us select the best entries to be showcased as part of The International 2017 broadcast. Upon review of the Workshop ratings and discussions, Valve will nominate the top entries to be featured in The International 2017 Battle Pass for a final voting process by the community to determine the winners.

Each finalist that places in the top ten will be guaranteed to win $500, and the top three selections will be awarded prizes of $25,000, $10,000, and $5,000 in recognition of their efforts.

More information and guidelines on the submission process can be found on the Dota 2 Short Film Contest site. Be sure to check in on the Workshop page regularly to help review the submissions you would like to see showcased at The International 2017.

The International 2017 Collector’s Cache

Available exclusively to Battle Pass owners for $1.99, The International 2017 Collector’s Cache has arrived, brimming with 20 aquatic-themed item sets—and three rare sets—designed to hook a full spread of heroes into the spirit of this year’s event.

Unboxing ten of these treasures automatically grants a token redeemable for any of the non-rare sets contained within, and opening 20 will instantly net you 20 Battle Levels. As usual, the chances for a rare drop increase with each treasure you open, and each purchase contributes directly to The International prize pool.

This treasure is only available for sale until The International concludes. As with last year’s International Collector’s Cache, the items in this treasure are exclusive and cannot be purchased elsewhere. Each set can, however, be gifted once or recycled for 2,000 Battle Points, and the Ultra Rare is marketable.

Exclusive Io Arcana

Some fans may have noticed that Io was not included in this year’s Arcana vote—indeed, we removed the wispy Fundamental from the selection process for pressing ceremonial concerns. But Io’s influence reaches into the very fabric of the Dota universe itself, and many astute fans found they could still hear the comforting sounds of Io’s benevolence seeping through the stream of rewards by clicking on the blank space at Battle Level 245. With today’s update, however, Io has at last relocated directly into the line of level rewards to unveil an all-new Arcana.

After seeing Io float away with a second-place finish in last year’s hotly-contested final round, we decided this year that the wisp deserved to skip the vote and select its own favored form. And what a heart-warming form it is! Now available to all Battle Pass owners who surpass level 245, the Benevolent Companion Arcana imbues Io with the form and function of the best friend anyone could ask for.

Featuring new animations, custom ability effects, custom sounds, and a special death effect, this exclusive Arcana can be obtained by reaching level 245 in The International 2017 Battle Pass, and—much like the Kunkka Prestige item at level 225—will not be available to market or trade. Don’t miss out—make sure to level up your Battle Pass before the end of The International to claim yours. Then take heart, all ye who unlock this reward, for Io knows that no matter where the tide of battle leads you, the bonds of friendship will always carry the day.

The Kiev Major Champions

Congratulations to OG for claiming the Mystic Staff trophy to win their fourth Dota 2 Major Championship crown.

OG’s path through the Main Event bracket was forged with hard-fought victories over three stalwart teams. Managing to fend off a rally by Team Random and beat back early aggression by Team Faceless for a pair of 2-1 victories, OG then outlasted a resilient EG squad in two lengthy matches for a 2-0 series win and a berth in the Grand Finals.

Facing crowd favorite Virtus Pro in the best-of-five decider, OG jumped to an early one-game lead before dropping two straight matches to find themselves on the brink of elimination. Responding with a victory in game four, they set up only the second game-five deciding match in Major Championship circuit history.

Despite stellar play by Virtus Pro to grab an early advantage in the final match, OG held on to recover en route to another trip to the winner’s circle. As the only team with multiple Major Championship victories, the only prize OG has yet to claim is The International itself.

With The Kiev Major now complete, we would like to thank all of the participating teams and fans in Kiev, and all of the fans around the world who tuned in to watch the action unfold. We look forward to welcoming teams and fans alike to The International on August 7 – 12 in Seattle.

In preparation for the next event, team rosters have been unlocked, and players are now able to manage their team affiliations. Teams have the opportunity to drop players until May 16, 12:00 a.m. PDT, and add players to their roster from that moment until May 24 12:00 a.m. PDT. From that point, rosters will remain locked until the conclusion of The International.
