Watch This: The International 2 Finals - Na'Vi vs iG
I'm not generally a Dota person. I find the game rather intimidating, and I'd never been able to enjoy watching it. For whatever reason, this weekend's tournament changed that. I've been glued to the streams. It's been an amazing ad for Dota 2 to me, and I say that as someone that's played League of Legends since beta. I have nothing against LoL and I will continue to play with my friends, but now I'm convinced to actually try learning Dota 2.
Na'Vi are the reigning champions from the first International, where they took home $1,000,000. Today, they defend their titles against Chinese powerhouses iG. The games have been nuts, the production values are top notch, and the crowd is loud and excited:
It's the European returning champs Natus Vincere (Na`Vi) against the Chinese team Invictus Gaming (iG). Over 500,000 people are watching. You should too.
If you have Dota 2 or it spectator client installed through Steam, you can watch the games in-client. It's a really amazing experience, actually. I highly recommend it if it's available to you. Otherwise, you can watch it on Twitch:
