Esports News – We’re only 2 months into 2020 and The International 10 is still months away, but Valve already revealed the details of the Collector’s Cache submission for the biggest Dota 2 event of the year.
Honoring the successful idea of TI9’s cache, Valve is once again allowing digital artists and designers to utilize their creative freedom. There’s no theme or aspect to follow. Participants can submit any design they want provided that they follow the basic guidelines.
Valve announced the details of the submission in the Steam Community: “Similar to last year, we’re not looking for sets confined within a specific theme. We encourage artists to explore any ideas they think will be compelling additions to their favorite hero’s item collection. We would, however, still like to ask artists to avoid the use of any concepts that involve human skulls, blood, and gore.”
The International Collector’s Cache 2020 Call To Arms is officially open. Participants, both amateurs and professionals, can join the contest by uploading their works to the Dota 2 Workshop. All posts should be marked with the “Collector’s Cache 2020” tag. The deadline of submission is on Monday, April 27, 2020.
While the submission process is ongoing, Dota 2 fans and players can visit the Dota 2 Workshop to vote for their favorite design through the Queue. Valve is encouraging everyone to vote and be heard to conduct a fast and fair selection process. The result is heavily based on community support.
Aside from the Collector’s Cache, Valve also opened a contest submission for their merchandise partners. The floor is open for some new game concept and designs to be featured on this year’s Dota 2 merchandise release. Designers can submit their concepts and ideas to the Dota 2 Workshop with the “Merchandise” tag. At present, there is no set deadline for merchandise submissions.
All Collector’s Cache and Dota 2 Merchandise designs that will make the cut will be transferred to the TI10 Secret Shop. Valve will release the final and official design months before The International 2020 in Stockholm. Only Battle Pass owners can purchase the Collector’s Cache. Each purchase contributes to 25% of The International 10’s prize pool.
