In a sequence of random tweets, it seems like Valve is hinting the new TI11 location – and it might be in Singapore.

Today something odd happened. The official Dota 2 Twitter account – which is notorious for its rare tweets – suddenly posted a sequence of random pictures and captions. It seems like a cryptic message trying to hint at a huge announcement. The community tried shooting some guesses – maybe a battle pass announcement, maybe a teaser to a new hero.. but one theory is clearer than the rest. Valve is hinting at The International 11’s location, and it might be in Singapore.

Firstly, Valve posted a bunch of pictures, showing mini figurines of Dota 2 heroes traveling, first at the airport and then on the road. The caption reads, “Too long cooped up inside the base. Grab the gang — wing it to some other place.”

The Dota 2 Twitter account then posted another set of pictures, only a couple of hours after. This time around, the mini figurines are hanging out at what seems like a pond. It says, “Take a sec. Enjoy the view. Recharge yourself — the real you.”

As expected, the Dota 2 community united and brought out their inner Sherlocks. Unraveling the riddle, most people pointed out what is now obvious – The International 2022 will take place in Singapore.

The first hint is that the mini figurines are traveling in a flight. Twitter user, LordOfTheKappas pointed out that the airline seat is from Singapore Airlines Business Class.

The second post sees the figurines already settled at a place, assuming they have arrived at their destination. It is pointed out that the pond is actually Gardens by the Bay in Singapore.

The thought of a TI coming to SEA is already taking the community by storm. It is no doubt that the region is greatly enthusiastic when it comes to Dota 2 – but coupled with the fact that a TI has never been hosted there makes it even more significant.

But it is never really true until it is officially announced. For now, Dota 2 fans have to sit back and wait. Will TI11 actually take place in Singapore? Is it a hint towards the next battle pass or a new hero instead? Or is the Dota 2 account hacked by SirActionSlacks?

Only time will tell…

In the meantime, let’s enjoy the ongoing ESL One Stockholm Major which is starting its Main Event (with a live crowd!) today.
