Dota 2’s The International sold out in an hour

The International, the biggest Dota 2 tournament in the world, will take place in Seattle's Key Arena July 18th through the 21st. If you're looking to pick up tickets for the event, you'll have to find them on the secondary market; they sold out in about an hour. I just hope you have the cash to spend, though, because the prices have expectedly been jacked up.

Compared to an original value of $99, General Admission tickets are being sold in the $300-$500 range. Floor seats, which originally sold for $199, weren't currently listed on eBay, presumably because they were all snatched up by people who actually want to attend the event. We hope, anyway; scalpers are just the absolute worst.

If you're unable to attend the event in person because you're unable to afford the costs, you can take solace in watching the games unfold from the comfort of your very own home and use that money you saved to purchase a nice big TV for the tournament.
