    Am I missing something? Won't these players be flailing about blindly in the tournament? I mean, I get DotA is DotA...but...Characters, balance, maps, are they going to have any experience with any of this? Did they get some pre-release versions to practice?

    How are they going to have a tournament without any game release?

    AFAIK, Dota 2 is dota in source engine, because IceFrog (the main dev) want it that way (very unreceptive about ideas, even the models should be close as possible to dota1 withouth breaking blizzard IP).

    1 Million dolar?

    Valve is doing much more to the competitive gaming than blizzard ever made. (Blizzard even attempted to take control of korean's broodwar tournaments 'because they were infringing IP'.)

    I believe all the teams mentioned are beta testers.

    Apart from that, DOTA2 <3

    The players from the 16 teams have had access to the game (closed beta perhaps?) for a while now. Gabe Newell commented on the level of play coming from the teams as "extraordinary".

    Cannot wait for this :banana:
