In 5 weeks time, top teams from around the world will meet in Seattle for a shot at the monumental $15 million prize pool attached to this year’s Dota 2 International. Along with all the high profile players, only the best casters and personalities have been chosen to keep you, the viewer, entertained and hooked to all the action throughout the event. Want to know who they all are?

Valve sent out the invites this past weekend. A user called Wykrhm was nice enough to summarise everything into one neat post on Reddit:




  • Haitao
  • Xiaotian
  • DC
  • Laodang
  • MuMu
  • BBC
  • Zycj
  • Freeagain
  • AMS
  • PC Cold
  • Danche
  • 78
  • Lin
  • Miao
  • Watt
  • CuoJue

Even though I know very little about the Russian casters, it is super odd not seeing V1lat receive an invite – I’ve gotten so used to seeing that name pop up when I’m choosing who to listen to. Also missing from the English casters are Sunsfan and my personal favourite, Ayesee. I really thought they would get the nod of approval from Valve. In fact, it looks like a lot of people have been left out.

Know who did crack an invite though? Our very own South African Dota 2 guru, Noxville! Ben will be there doing all the number crunching and providing the all important statistics:

How epic is that? Ben is great at what he does, so it’s nice to see that his hard work has paid off.

Overall, this is a solid team of casters and personalities. Are you excited for TI5? I know I am!
