About The International 2016

In the brief history of eSports, no event has made more of an impact on the development of the scene than The International. Year on year the competition breaks records for views, attendance and prize pool, and with The International 2016 already a significant way ahead of the marks set by last year’s edition, it looks as though this year will be the best yet. Organisers Valve have overseen remarkable growth in the five-year history of TI, and last year saw a prize pot in excess of $18m being split between the top teams.

As world leaders for DOTA 2 coverage, GosuGamers aim to bring you the most comprehensive coverage possible for this monumental occasion, with an event coverage hub covering all the angles. Whether you want a TI 2016 schedule, information about travel and accommodation or just news of the daily happenings, we will cover all bases, as well as bringing you the unique analysis and content we’re famous for.

2011 saw the announcement of the first International, with a $1m prize for the winners, the event was an instant hit, with news about T1 2011 flooding the eSports channels, and the steady growth continues apace, with more than $18m of prize money on offer last year. From the moment a TI schedule and location is announced until the end of grand finals, the world of DOTA is consumed with desire for news and information about an event that acts as a central focus in the eSports calendar.

The compendium method has been slightly rejigged this year, with Valve offering a new option in the form of a ‘Battle Pass’, but it is clear they aim to surpass the $18m mark set by TI 2015. Today there are TI 2016 event coverage hubs offering information wherever you look, but for everything from news, match reports and schedules to footage from the event and player interviews, GosuGamers.net is your one-stop shop for all things related.
