This must be one of the coolest eSports arenas we’ve seen so far. Valve’s annual Dota 2 tournament The International kicked off yesterday and they have built a stage that fits the $US18 million total prize money.

It’s not just the Dota map projected onto the stage, but whenever someone uses Ultimates or even basic spells, the same spell or Ult will appear on the stage, shooting at the enemy team’s booth.

If you haven’t tuned in yet, YouTuber Matt Wortham‘s snippet from yesterday shows how it looks:

Goosebumps!

If you follow the tournament and have multiple screens, there’s a crowd cam stream where you can easily see the stage and all its crazy effects.
