Video game heavy hitters pack Benaroya Hall

SEATTLE — Thousands of people flocked to Seattle for The International DOTA2 video game championships at Benaroya Hall from Aug. 7-11.

The event featured more than 10 days of team-based contests, with the winning team taking home more than $1 million.

Q13 FOX News’ Kaci Aitchison helped host the event. And while she knew little about the game, she “gained tons of respect” for the gamers and the crowd.

“They’re all really smart,” Aitchison said.

    I wish they would give credit to the people who made the splitscreen portion of the video… DotaCinema made that for their channel (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08SlUCv6Mpg)
