“Tis said among artisan and warrior alike that there is no finer servant than a trusty smeevil. However, a hero who chooses a smeevil as their courier may soon find these clever critters taking new forms in order to gain assistants of their own. Inspired by the great battles they bear witness to, a smeevil may become emboldened to press ever more exotic beasts to their cause.”
As the tournament evolves, so too will your courier. Reveal new features for your courier by spectating The International matches, granting you new ways to customize its appearance and show off to your friends.

Flying Version – In Game Shots
Similar to some of the previous tournament couriers, Smeevil will track the amount of International games you have watched and will upgrade the courier’s effect based on the amount of games you have watched. For those of you that won’t be able to catch the games live you will be able to watch the replays in order to increase your total games viewed count.
PS: Watching the qualifier games will also count to this view count.
There will also be the possibility of unlocking a range of different colours for your Smeevil courier.
