The dates for TI11 in Singapore have been confirmed in an post by Valve.
TI11 in Singapore feels a little more real today as Valve confirms the dates of The International. The post was released in the afternoon of June 1st in a post on the official Dota 2 website, with accompanying posts across social media.
In the post, Valve outlined a truly titanic amount of Dota 2. The Last Chance Qualifiers will run from October 8-12. The Group Stage will then take place on October 15-18, with the full lineup of 20 teams.
Next teams will head to the playoffs at the SunTec Singapore Arena for October 20-23. Finally, after a huge six-day break the Finals will take place in the Singapore Indoor arena from October 29-30.
TI11 dates have a big gap
While people are visibly excited about the confirmation of dates, the long gaps between stages may be causing concern for the public. Specifically, two days between the Last Chance qualifier, the group stage and the playoffs. And six days, almost a week between the end of the playoffs and the final.
Patch 7.31d teases
In addition to details on the TI11 dates and Last Chance Qualifiers, the post briefly mentions the exciting new features in patch 7.31d. And that dated post also contains the date of this update: expect patch 7.31d on June 8th.
