Beyond the Summit will host The International 7 qualifiers hub which promises to be a time travel rollercoaster through Dota history and personal stories of all the talent involved.

The International 2017 Hub will be hosted at the BTS house and after a two years hiatus, one of the best and most appreciated content creators and interviewers in esports, Ken 'Hot_Bid' Chen comes back in style. Along Hot_Bid, Ted 'PyrionFlax' Forsyth will also make his appearance and will take on the hosting duties of the International 7 Hub. PyrionFlax is a common figure at Valve events. He is rarely attending third party tournaments panels, instead he has been part of the broadcast teams of TI3, 4, 5 and 6 as well as part of the Frankfurt and Boston Majors talent. Andy 'Draskyl' Stiles, another community favorite commentator who has been on and off for over a year now, is finally back and will be part of the commentating crew for The International 7 regional qualifiers.

Fully packed with the best Dota 2 commentators, analysts and content creators, the TI7 Hub will go live at 10 am PDT on June 25, nine hours before the first regional group stage match and will be a 24/7 marathon where everyone, apart from commentating and analyzing the qualifier matches, will participate in the Hub Olympic Games, a series of entreating segments “where casters and talent will compete with each other in a variety of stupid events”  as BTS describes in the  their official announcement.

Beyond the Summit has also put together a reddit Hot Hub TI Machine thread where everyone is invited to ask the talent any questions they want.

Feel free to ask whether we think EG stole VP's strats or how excited we are that Draskyl is finally coming or who would win in a Puppey - Envy cage match or what BTS does on LAN nights or what kind of girl is Bulba's type or how much we had to pay Pyrion to abandon his children for a week.

The BTS crew is really monitoring that reddit thread so don’t be shy and go throw your questions or perhaps suggestions of what you would like to see during the TI7 qualifiers hub. Also, take into consideration that this year’s theme for the hub is “If you could travel to any point in Dota 2's history, what would you do?
