The Kiev Major, Valve’s second big tournament of the season has started, and you can currently watch it live, if you’re into that.
It’s starting slow: the first two days are the qualifiers for the Swiss group, which will work to determine the main event brackets for when that gets started on Thursday. Currently, you can tune in and watch Team Liquid fighting Thunderbirds. As I was writing that last statement, Lifestealer just got destroyed under a safe-lane tower.
You can watch it, right now if you want. Dota 2’s spectator system is as good as it’s ever been and provides a wealth of information for those that need it, however, if you’re not able to log into Dota 2 and watch, there’s also a decent Twitch stream with pro-casters and panels and all sorts of things.
Similarly, if you’ve got one of Dota 2’s in-game Battle Pass items, you can track the whole event without having to watch anything.
