The dates for the International were already known beforehand, however Wykhrm Reddy has posted the breakup of the dates for the Group stage and the main stage of the event. The International is the biggest esport event with the largest prize pool by a big margin. It is anticipated with great excitement and the best teams in the world compete at it. We will wait to see who wins it this year. Valve has already made some changes to Dota2 esports rules mainly to avoid the incessant the roster changes made to teams after every Major.
