Will there be a DotaTV ticket, will it be cast on Twitch by BTS or such, or will it only be available on the Chinese stream?
Looking forward to DK vs Titan in 7h!
Also thanks so much for your work on this site, translating for my favorite team DK so they are more accessible to us Western fans.
Don’t know about DotaTV ticket. It is being cast by BTS on Twitch. Chinese stream is available on Fengyunzhibo.com.
Glad to be of service!
