The first in a series of articles covering Insomnia 49's Dota 2 Tournament. The biggest UK Dota 2 LAN event to date, boasting an impressive £2,000 minimum prize pool and five Shogun Bros Ballista Mice. Today we'll be looking at the 'Ones to watch' and our pundits' opinions on what we think their final standings will be when the smoke clears on Monday.
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.

Meltdown - the UK's first dedicated esports bar - are hosting what is probably going to be the worlds biggest pubstomp yet for the final two days of The International 3.

At last weekend epic.ELEVEN, hundreds of gamers armed only with their computers and various amounts of energy drink descended upon the Kettering Conference Centre. At epic.LAN, predictably, various gaming tournaments were held in an attempt to ascertain who, in attendance, was best at playing a particular game. One of these games was our old favourite, Dota 2 where four UK teams competed for the £525 1st place prize pool.

No we aren’t playing World of Warcraft so no need to worry but with the introduction of the Guild System into Dota 2 we have gotten our Guild up and running thanks to PyrionFlax and CyborgMatt and we are ready for people to come along. Unfortunately unlike the Chat room you will need to contact an officer of the guild (Generally all UKDota Admins) for an invite into this guild. Everyone is welcome and we hope to see many people come forth into the guild. It makes it easier to establish parties and chat (and it’s finally moderated!).
