    I don’t play Dota 2, so can someone explain to me please what these compendium packs give to players who buy them?

    It’s essentially your passport to the tournament. You get to make draft picks and predictions for various things in the match. Other little unlocks as well… This eventually gives you all kinds of different items for Dota 2 while you participate as a viewer.

    Items range from loading screens, In game HUD’s, unique couriers ( in game toons that bring you your items), gear, ect.

    It’s fun as a whole to participate in as a viewer, possibly the best Esports event for a viewer who can’t attend the actual event.
