And how would they do that with the as you put it, unreleased product?
The first time the game will be showed in public is at this event.
If you read Gabe's comments, you'll notice he refers to the teams preparing for the tournament. One would assume that the teams that we're invited/attending, also have the game already and are playing it.
It will make the tournament interesting, but at the same time, I would much rather see the teams play a few games for the first time versus having a lot of time to practice.
And how about a tournament that doesn't involve dota teams, but instead regular people too.
