The Dota 2 Tournament: The Good, the Bad and the Worst Every Details Inside

Dota 2 Tournament

This weekend I attended my first-ever esports event. It was not your average League of Legends Championship Series (LCS) game or Starcraft 2 show match. Instead, this was an 8-team tournament in which each team had a full roster of 5 people, and the prize pool was $7,000.

This is not as small as it sounds, as Dota 2 Tournament is one of the more complex games you can find for esports. Other than Starcraft, which relies heavily on speed and memory, there are anywhere between 100 to 300 active spells that each player needs to remember. Not to mention massive amounts of strategy, which plays a significant role in the game.

Talking about the difference between audience and players of Dota 2 Tournament

It is also different because there are no physical barriers between the audience and the players. Even it means that if something goes wrong, you can talk to them! It was just amazing to see everything that was happening in real-time. I could even hear their communication!

The tournament itself was very well organized. They had people doing the commentary, and they had a sound guy who made sure everything was okay in terms of audio. But most importantly, there were referees for each game, making sure that nobody cheated. Also, this was the first time I got to see 2v2 teams, which are becoming more popular nowadays.

The casters were also good. I think there were 2 of them, and they really knew what they were doing. They explained everything that was going on and gave their opinion, which is always lovely to hear. However, they got a bit repetitive towards the end of most games simply because, as with most esports events, games can take a long time to finish.

I noticed that there was no live broadcasting of the matches on twitch or any other platform. The experience was only available if you attended it in person or watched an off-screen recording which is not ideal for future tournaments.
