On July 18th to the 21st I was at the 2014 Dota 2 International. Teams competed for a community funded prize pool of over $10,000,000 dollars at Seattle’s KeyArena.
Just like last year, and the year before that, I met some awesome people and had a fantastic time. KeyArena wasn’t my favorite venue, but the surrounding activities and places to eat made it worth while.
My very own Contributor badge.
This got me excited.

I found a Valve at KeyArena.

Sirio next to his artwork. He’s the concept artist for RedMoon.
