    why would that matter
    Because if they don't shrink it down than that means that they will allow maps to be larger.

    Leaks of minor things:
    http://www.gamersbook.com/scene/news...scom-by-valve/
    http://www.gamersbook.com/scene/news...-6vs6-matches/

    First one details an invite, which mentions minor details about the event; 2nd one shows an example of a Dota 2 server, including 6v6 action.

    Some of the most interesting stuff from the first being:
    The Event will be held on-site at Gamescon in the Cologne Trade Fair Center. Valve has secured a large booth on the Gamescon show floor for the Event. We will need you to be present in Cologne from at least August 16th to 22nd, to prepare for and participate in the Event.
    So this certainly isn't going to be a modest showing.

    it's not 6v6, it's most likely spectators.

    That doesn't sound familiar at all.

    I hope it kind of has the same layout as LoL, but it will be better because it is Dota.

    Yup. Here's a podcast where he talks about it a little (around 34 minutes in). He does a quick example of two of the seven characters he plays and mentions that it's likely to come out in the fall.

    Pretty insane how a 2005 or 2006 gaming rig could run this. Valve is doing a great job with keeping the specs down.

    My computer doesn't meet the minimum system requirements, yet it can run Alien Swarm and Left 4 Dead 2 with only minor graphical issues (mainly water). I love Vavle's optimization.

    I thought it was well-known that a lot of Valve games have awful, awful optimization if you don't have an excellent CPU.
    Like how TF2 and L4D1/2 had all of that trouble with multicore rendering, and how Alien Swarm actually asked for a bit more than its system requirements..

    I have a pentium 4 and I can run all Valve games. I'm pretty sure it's a single core.

    No, I've had friends who had 2.4ghz Quad cores and a 9800GT and they're forced to run TF2 at like 20 - 30s fps. Multicore rendering use to be bugged for a lot of people; there were loads of complaints on and off SPUF about people with excellent rigs getting fps in the 30s, 20s, or teens with multicore rendering on.
    On my old computer, I use to have massive framerate drops into the 20s and 30s during regular firefights in TF2 on my 2.2ghz Intel Pentium Dual Core (basically a C2D with less cache) and radeon 4670. My Phenom 1055T runs all the Source games fine though, personally.

    EDIT: He's a perfect example, just one out of a thousand though
    http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...php?p=23450816
    Without deactivating the use of a core, he gets 10fps.

    It's also well-known that Source favors clock speed over core number.
    EDIT:
    Come to think of it it's more that Source has a very bugged and fickle way of handling processors, not necessarily that it's lousy optimization.

    So, you are saying that by having a bad processor, I actually avoided performance issues?

    Pretty much, yeah.
    It's the way Source is programed to use the CPU.
