League of Legends isn't the only MOBA getting their tournament finals on this weekend in Seattle. Across town, Valve's "The International" DOTA 2 tournament  is down to its final stages with 16 of the best teams in the world squaring off for dominance and a $1 Million dollar first place prize. The teams have been squaring off in their early rounds earlier in the week, but the double elimination final brackets are in full swing now.

Watch live video from dota2ti on www.twitch.tv

You can watch in two ways: either live via Twitch.tv and Own3d.tv or, and I think this is the most interesting thing Valve has done thus far with DOTA2, via the free spectator client that you can get through Steam. So, even if you miss all the action, you can tune into the replay where it will save every camera movement the commentator makes, and all of the commentary, right in client. Never again will you have to scour YouTube to find the best plays of the tournament, as they will all be right there! This is a pretty huge advantage that Valve has over Riot in their client, as the match commentary is one of the more exciting parts of spectating a match.

So tell us GameZone faithful - what MOBA are you watching this weekend?
