Counter-Strike could get Dota 2 style “International”

Valve isn't just about Steam, you know. They are also the brains behind Dota 2 and Counter-Strike. Those brains are being rewarded with the success of The International, and they might want to give similar treatment to other games in Valve's stable.

The International 4 finally kicks off today with the play-in series. Who will be the wild child?

The International is just about here, Dota 2 followers rejoice! Kicking off the festivities is the play-in series, featuring 4 teams who just missed a spot in the top 15. They still have a chance for glory and a slice of that huge $10 million prize pool though, as the winner of the play-in gets to take the 16th spot at TI4. Find all you need to know about these teams and their upcoming games after the jump.

Watch the finals of the Bravado Brawl here tonight

There was a brawl going on this weekend. No, it wasn't on the football or rugby pitch, and it wasn't over the Steam Sale prices either. This was a Dota 2 brawl between (players from ) South Africa and the UK, and you can watch the finals tonight.

Ivents plans to take local eSports by storm

I keep hearing about local organizations that plan on taking the world of eSports by storm, but it's particularly funny when I read it in print in a press release. The latest group is promising cool prizes and even has an impressive international sponsor. Will they finally carry through on the promises of a storm?

Hearthstone to have a $250 000 pot for Blizzcon 2014

HEARTHSTONE! By now, pretty much everybody has experienced Blizzard’s ludicrously addictive card game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. It’s got the right balance now, it has an audience and it’s going to have plenty of cash on offer in time for Blizzcon this year. Poker, eat your heart out.

Think you’re good at Hearthstone? Prove it

So my latest addiction is Blizzard's new card game, Hearthstone, and while I’m pretty useless at it I love how Blizzard handles the rankings so I am at least given a chance while I sit in my level 19 pit of squalor.
