BTS presents the first ever BOT International

Dota 2 Cristy “Pandoradota2” Ramadani

BTS has once again taken memes and tournaments to the next level. This year, the fun-loving studio that delivers fans in-house and casual tournaments, as well as off-the-beaten-track content and productions, will be hosting the first ever BOT International. 

The game client BOTs are an integral part of most player's learning experience on some level — whether its testing new ideas, patch updates, learning a new hero, practicing a skill or even just playing alone sometimes. That said, why shouldn't Brad BOT be able to compete just like anyone else?

We are excited and proud to announce Bot TI, a meme event where we determine which Dota hero is best. And by best we mean which Dota hero's easy bots win a teamfight against other Dota heroes easy bots.

This event may be simultaneously the stupidest and most important event of the year. Five copies of each hero will run at each other and teamfight. Matches last 30 seconds and are Best-of-3 (Game 1 bots are level 5, Game 2 level 15, Game 3 level 25) with skills and items that are most commonly skilled in pubs (DotaBuff).

Hyped? Ready for more? You can even get involved in creating your own BOT Fantasy team, making predictions and following the brackets and progress HERE.

The event will run from a few a day at the TI Qualifier Hub, and then more until the final 16 (Bot TI Main Event) July 14-15. All matches will be broadcast in English on the BTS Twitch Channel HERE
