Why Counter Strike Doesn't Need an International

On July 21st, the fourth DotA2 International Championships came to an end. It was the most watched DotA2 event of all time, drawing more than 20 million total viewers. The tournament was also shown on ESPN3 and a preview of the finals was shown on ESPN2.

Many have called for Valve to hold a similar tournament for the game to give it the exposure they think it deserves. In reality, what Counter Strike need isn’t an International, but a continuation and expansion of the support that Valve is already providing.
