About The International 2015
Each year sees eSports grow and grow, and Valve’s premier event is always at the forefront of that evolution. The International 2015 looks set to be another monumental event with a prize pool we could only have dreamed of a few years ago, and GosuGamers want to keep you ahead of all the TI 2015 news with our event coverage hub. TI 2014 saw the winners take home over $5m, and with that number looking likely to be eclipsed this year, interest in the event is at an all-time high.
All of the TI 2014 top three are set to be in attendance for the 2015 iteration, and TI 2015 news will be at a premium for the course of the event. As the largest DOTA2 outlet in the world, GosuGamers aim to keep you up to date all the TI 2015 news, information and results as and when you need them, with our new, improved event coverage hub and a team of fanatics ready to bring you all the details.
Since TI 2011 blew us all away this has been a major part of the eSports calendar, if not the main focus of the gaming year, and after the changes to funding Valve made at TI 2013 that excitement has exploded. Schedule and location details were highly sought after, and when tickets for the event were released in March of this year they reportedly sold out within five minutes of going on sale.
Whoever comes out on top, be it defending champions Newbee or otherwise, this is sure to be a great event with representatives from across the DOTA world, and with this only being the third year the company have run the compendium to plump up the prize pool we’re still exploring the limits of what the fans can make possible. Be sure to check GosuGamers during the event for all your TI news, coverage and information on eSports’ biggest show.
