The Dota, and fans have been clamouring for Valve to stick them in Dota 2 for a good long while.were one of the best-loved heroes from the original
Well they've finally got their wish, with the duo making a grandstanding return at this year's The International 2014 tournament.
In an All-Star game that took place this weekend after the main matches had run their course, Evil Geniuses player Arteezy picked the Techies, much to the crowd's delight. Seriously, there were pyrotechnics and everything. We don't know when they'll make their way to the main game, but fans shouldn't have too long to wait.
One of the stretch goals for The International 2014's fund-raisingwas a special taunt for the Techies, so we knew they were on their way at some point. Still, this was a fairly overblown way for Valve to make the official confirmation.
The International 2014 wraps up later today with the Grand Final between team Newbee and ViCi Gaming. There's over $10,000,000 at stake.
