After five days of intense competition in the International DOTA 2 Championships at Gamescom, six Ukrainian kings have emerged victorious, known as team Na'vi (yes, Avatar fans). And along with the immense pride in securing their #1 result, they also get to walk away with a cool $1M in prize money.

Dota (Defense of the Ancients) 2 while not scheduled for final release for quite sometime yet, should pop up in public beta form within "a few weeks" according to a statement from Valve last week. Sign-ups for the beta are still open and to register for it you just head over to the Dota 2 website and click the green button that says "Sign in through STEAM".
