This special stream will feature commentary aimed at “easing people into understanding the exciting world of BKBs, tri-lanes and counter-picks.” If all that sounds like double dutch to you, then it’s precisely the stream that you should be tuning into over the course of The International 4.
The playoff phase gets underway on July 8th with a Wild Card Solo Championship, with the main event kicking off on July 18th. You can find a full schedule for the event, results and broadcast streams on The International’s website.
Whether you’re new to DotA 2, a player but not really versed in the competitive scene or an avid fan, The International is aiming to cater for you. The Newcomer’s Broadcast is exactly the type of stream option that needs to be available for large-scale events such as this, although to be fair some commentary teams do a great job of catering for viewers of varying experience.
