The International 2017 Collector's Cache



Available exclusively to Battle Pass owners for $1.99, The International 2017 Collector's Cache has arrived, brimming with 20 aquatic-themed item sets—and three rare sets—designed to hook a full spread of heroes into the spirit of this year's event.

Unboxing ten of these treasures automatically grants a token redeemable for any of the non-rare sets contained within, and opening 20 will instantly net you 20 Battle Levels. As usual, the chances for a rare drop increase with each treasure you open, and each purchase contributes directly to The International prize pool.

This treasure is only available for sale until The International concludes. As with last year’s International Collector’s Cache, the items in this treasure are exclusive and cannot be purchased elsewhere. Each set can, however, be gifted once or recycled for 2,000 Battle Points, and the Ultra Rare is marketable.

Client Performance Update



No matter which aspect of Dota captures your interest, all players benefit from improvements in the performance of the game client. With that in mind, today's update delivers multiple changes focused on providing smooth and consistent gameplay regardless of the hardware setup you're running.

Over the past few weeks, we've released many small incremental updates aimed at improving client performance. In today's update, we're releasing many more fixes that will also improve overall performance and FPS stability. Specifically, low-end machines will see a higher peak frame rate, while high-end machines will experience improved frame-rate consistency, resulting in fewer performance dips.

The New Journey

About This Game

Dota is a competitive game of action and strategy, played both professionally and casually by millions of passionate fans worldwide. Players pick from a pool of over a hundred heroes, forming two teams of five players. Radiant heroes then battle their Dire counterparts to control a gorgeous fantasy landscape, waging campaigns of cunning, stealth, and outright warfare.

Irresistibly colorful on the surface, Dota is a game of infinite depth and complexity. Every hero has an array of skills and abilities that combine with the skills of their allies in unexpected ways, to ensure that no game is ever remotely alike. This is one of the reasons that the Dota phenomenon has continued to grow. Originating as a fan-made Warcraft 3 modification, Dota was an instant underground hit. After coming to Valve, the original community developers have bridged the gap to a more inclusive audience, so that the rest of the world can experience the same core gameplay, but with the level of polish that only Valve can provide.

Get a taste of the game that has enthralled millions.
