For you eSports fans, Dota players, and just about anyone who likes seeing video games played at the highest level, The International's invited teams have been officially announced. The following eleven teams have been fully qualified for participation in one of eSport's biggest events:

  • Alliance
  • Titan eSports
  • Evil Geniuses
  • Fnatic
  • NewBee
  • Vici Gaming
  • Natus Vincere
  • Team DK
  • Invictus Gaming
  • Cloud9
  • Team Empire

Although I am fairly new to both watching and playing Dota 2, I am very excited for The International. The documentary Free to Play got me interested in the game, and I'm looking forward to watching as many matches as possible. After tuning in to a good deal of the recent Starladder tournament, the teams I'm most excited to watch are Na'Vi and IG.
