In issue 85 of PC Gamer magazine, PC Gamer touched on Dota 2 and its scene dubbing the game, "the most important Valve game ever". Reddit user Kakkoister took a snap snot of a snippet from the magazine and interestingly enough, PC Gamer claimed that Dota 2 will be officially released before The International 3 (most possibly July).
