Monday, 22nd August 2011 16:36 GMT By Debabrata Nath

Ukraine based Dota 2 team Na’Vi has emerged winner of the inaugural Dota 2 championships, which were held at gamescom in Cologne last week.

The team bagged a cool $1 million in prize money by taking pole position. The event was broadcast live.

Valve’s confirmed that it’ll be holding another international tournament next year at the exact same venue. The dates are yet to be finalized. The company’s also in talks with various other Dota event organisers about the prospect of offering Dota 2 during its beta phase.

On top of the prize money, Na’Vi also got hardware sponsored by Nvidia, who provided all the hardware for the event.

The tourney featured the 16 best Dota teams in the world, who locked horns through a group stage, followed by a double elimination play-off format over the course of five days.

Dota 2 will be available for the PC and Mac later this year.

    They were the best team. I was happy to see the match live. Ehome was a comeback team all the way. Not saying that they were bad, not even nearly, but their style was not the one I personally like.

    Watching this tournament showed how cool the game but I honestly the game takes so much teamwork and the games can last so long. I don’t have the will to make “gamer” friends in this game. Public games will be full of idiots and 14 year old’s bossing the idiots. Valve is supporting only the original dota fans with this game… ill pass. The Coaching system is a joke.

    Oh, you’re part of the alpha test, are you? Could you please elaborate for us on what makes the coaching system such a joke?
