Dota 2 International 2013 tickets listed on the Steam Marketplace

Last night, the tickets for the Dota 2 International 2013 sold out in two short hours, leaving many fans disappointed. However, tickets have begun to show up on the Steam Marketplace: if you’re prepared to pay over the odds. 

While the tickets have now vanished, they were listed for as much as £180.

It was inevitable that getting your hands on a ticket would be a tough feat. Benaroya Hall holds roughly 2,500 seats, and there are roughly three million people playing Dota 2. So, like any other high-demand ticket sale, we can probably expect touts.

What’s unexpected is how the Steam Marketplace is being used to fleece Dota fans, or that the tickets themselves can be traded. 

Valve haven’t yet commented on that fact that the tickets can be swapped between players, but Cyborgmatt gave this statement as to how the ticket sales were handled:

I believe that people who buy tickets for international should not be able to resale them.

Many people buy tickets just to resale them and make money, and true fans of dota2 don't have chance to visit international, or they have to pay ridiculous money to resalers.

In case if someone who purchased a ticket to attend international and cannot do it, he should be able to return his ticket directly to valve.
