Valve allowed the owners of the Battle Pass of The International 2019 Dota 2 to open sets with player cards and select favorite team and fill in the predictions for the LAN final. It was announced in the developer’s blog.
Like in the last year, the logo of your favorite team can be drawn on the map and used as emoji in chat. The logo will also appear above the player when teleporting. It can be of three colors - blue, silver or gold. The colors will depend on the availability of a complete set of cards of the desired quality. Kites will also be branded with TI9 member logos.
The International 2019 will be held August 15-25 in Shanghai. At the this moment the prize fund of the tournament is $ 29.4 million and continues to grow due to sales of the Battle Pass and levels.
