Insomnia Dota 2 - All The Facts
One week to go until the biggest event of the year! There’s a £2,000 prize pool on the cards for Dota 2 at the moment, rising to £2,500 if a few more teams sign up, and a whole host of other cool stuff going on at the festival, so I thought I’d better fill you in on all the important stuff.
Thursday: Early Arrival
If you’ve paid for it, you can turn up on Thursday night and get a few extra hours of LAN in. We’ll be on the i49 in-game channel and the UKDota.net guild chat, so come and say hi.
Friday: Chill Day
Games running all day - check out the UKDota.net guild or in-game channel i49 for in-houses and other stuff.
