The International 2014 Dota 2 Championship Announced

The 11 'automatic bids' and 40 teams looking to qualify for this year's Dota 2 International Championships have been revealed
Valve sent over a press release announcing that this year's Dota 2 International Championships will take place at the KeyArena in Seattle, WA, July 18th - 21st. The 40-team qualifying rounds begin May 12, and are divided into four regional divisions. The winner of each division will earn an automatic bid to The International, and the four runners up will compete in an onsite qualifier for the final spot.
Tickets to the event were made available late last month and sold out in less than one hour.
