About the camp
Why a camp?
You can read more about the background of this idea in Waga’s posts on reddit:
Can I talk to past and future coaches and/or attendees of the camp?
We have a public Discord server set up for the Dota 2 training camp. Simply join and ask your questions, and you can talk in real time with camp admins, coaches, and attendees!
Will everything be in english?
Will I be able to discuss various topics with the coaches?
Absolutely, there will always be a couple of coaches available during free game and since we eat all the meals together you’ll have plenty of opportunities to talk to them throughout the week.
What is the average age?
Will there be vegetarian food available?
Yes absolutely, just let us know of any food preferences or allergies that you have in the attendee form.
Where do I submit information about myself as a player/attendee?
Closer to the camp you will all be asked to fill out an attendee form where we collect information about you as a player, expectations, requests and practical information like food preferences/allergies, transfer from train station etc.
Travel, Tickets & Transfer

Do I need a visa?
For most visitors coming to Sweden, a visa is not a necessity. Citizens from certain countries might however be in need of such documents. If your country is on this list you will need a visa. When applying for a visa you will need an invitation from us. Send an email to us with name, birth date and nationality and we will provide you with an invitational letter. Please make sure to start the process in good time before the camp, bureaucracy can sometimes consume a disproportional amount of time …
Where do I fly to/from?
How does the transfer from Alvesta work?
Let us know when you’ll arrive at Alvesta and we’ll plan the transfer between the train station and the camp as smoothly as possible for everyone. Last year everyone was picked up by Waga in a Tesla.. 😉 We don’t want to make any such promises but some sort of transfer will be arranged by us, that will work with everyones train tickets/flights.
Do you know if anyone is planning a road-trip through Europe like last year?
Not that we know of, but if anyone wants to share information about any such trip we can help spread the word.
Try asking in our discord server:
What does your travel guarantee do?

If I rent a computer, will it be available at all times or only during sessions?
Yes, you will have your own computer and it will be available 24/7.
How well will the rented computers support Dota 2?
The rental PC:s are gaming computers from a gaming center so the support is good. If we notice any problems with a computer we just replace it with one of the backups.
Should I bring my own peripherals?
Yes, please do that! (we will have a couple of extra sets if anyone should forget)
Can I bring my own computer?
Absolutely, but please make sure you have any necessary adapters
Booking, payments etc.
My bank asks me to specify full address (incl. city & country) of the recepient when making a transfer, what is the correct address to use?
Dota 2 Training Camp
Håknarp 2 (street)
56195 (postal code)
Lekeryd (postal address)
if you have any questions the answer’s probably just one email away 🙂

After I’ve booked a spot for the camp, is there enything else I should do?
Pay the fee perhaps? 😉

Sightseeing in Sweden
There wont be a lot of time for sightseeing for the attendees but any friends or relatives who join us during the week might be interested in what Sweden has to offer.
Have a look at “visit Småland” to get som inspiration. (“Småland” is the county where the camp is located)
You can easliy get to either Swedens capital “Stockholm” or Denmarks capital “Copenhagen” by direct train from Alvesta (appr. 3h, both destinations).
