If you’re not heading to TI 3 in person we’re going to be reporting back for you, but that’s not the only way to enjoy the world’s most incredible e-sports event. On Sunday, August 11th, bars across Canada are hosting Pubstomps: the very best way to enjoy TI3 other than being there.

There are 5 venues currently holding Pubstomps, so let’s take a look.


Vancouver Dota 2 International Pubstomp

EXP Bar in Vancouver

Thrown by UBC eSports and EXP in conjunction with a host of sponsors, this one’s in the heart of downtown Vancouver. Skytrain access is off the Expo/Millenium Line, and there is parking available at Cambie and Pender (please don’t drink and drive.) Doors open at 12PM Noon PDT.

Tickets can be had at EventBrite and are $5 prior to the event ($10 at the door). You can check out the Facebook Page for the event here.

Ottawa Pubstomp / BarCraft August 11th at Funhaven!

FunHaven, Ottawa


It’s a combination of Dota 2 and SC2 Regional WCS Finals (nice one, Blizzard…) at FunHaven in Ottawa. Here’s what they have to say about the location:

“For those of you who drive, there is plenty of parking. For those of you bus, it’s a 10 minute walk from the Iris Transitway station. For everyone else, it’s a bit far out but hope to see you there all the same!”

Doors open at 3PM EDT, and a $5 cover nets you $5 worth of FunHaven gaming credit.
