Our coverage plan for The International 2018

Every year I’ve been covering The International for all our Dota 2 fans out there and this year, we plan to increase the coverage even further so you don’t miss out on a single detail, fantasy challenge player pick, prediction or anything else. As a massive Dota 2 fan, it is the most exciting time of the year and I simply can’t wait for the biggest esports tournament ever to kick off.

For the first time ever, the battle for the Aegis of Champions will be held on Canadian Soil, as The International 2018 will take place at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia. Unfortunately, we won’t be attending the event but we will do the next best thing, bring our readers every piece of the action.

As the tournament unfolds, we will be covering all the bases and everything announced at The International 2018, from possible new heroes to the Short Film Contest winner and even when GabeN spills his drink. That’s how much detail will go into our The International 2018 coverage and we can’t wait to share it all with you.

First up, I would like to share some important dates before The International 2018 kicks off next week. On Monday, 13 August, I will be sharing my full tournament predictions with all of you and on 14 August I will share the fantasy challenge player card picks before the tournament’s group stages kick off on 15 August.

Both of the above-mentioned articles will go live before 11:00 SA time so you will have enough time to look through them and maybe even copy them if you like. Last year I managed to finish in the top 1% in the fantasy challenge and hopefully I will be able to do the same and help some readers get some extra Battle Points in the process.

When the tournament’s group stages kick off (15 to 18 August), I will have the day’s results up for everyone who couldn’t watch the matches and the next day’s fantasy challenge picks ready for everyone before on or before 11:00 SA time.

On 19 August after the group stages have been completed, I will be sharing my main event bracket predictions. As The International 2018 moves into the Main Event on 20 August, we will still have the daily results and challenge predictions, but we will also have some live coverage of match results and everything else happening on our Twitter so you can stay up to date with what’s happening throughout the tournament.  

The International 2018’s finals kick off on 25 August and with it, we have something special planned. You will still be able to stay up to date via our Twitter page with what’s happening the grand finals, but we will also share an old-school battle report and match videos for those who couldn’t watch the grand finals live. This massive final post will only be shared on Sunday, 26 August, to avoid possible spoilers for those who plan to watch the finals go down but simply couldn’t catch the matches live that Saturday.

How excited are you for The International 2018 to kick off and which team do you think will claim the Aegis of Champions this year? Let us know in the comment section below.
