Dota 2 International esports tournament

Early this morning, the prize fund for the upcoming Dota 2 International esports tournament crossed the $10 million mark. Remarkably, just $1. 6 million p2000 skins of the prize fund was provided by Valve; the rest was contributed by members of the Dota 2 community who were eager to get their hands on some in-game items, and to support their favorite teams and the nascent esport as a whole. With a prize fund of over $10 million (and still another three weeks to accrue an even larger pot! ), The International 4 is now larger than The Masters golf tournament. Viva la esports!

The $10 million prize fund is even crazier if you consider that only 25% of Compendium sales went towards that total. Each Compendium (an interactive digital guide that accompanies the tournament) costs $10, but only $2. 50 from each sale was added to the total; the other $7. 50 filled Valve’s coffers. If we remove the $1. 6 million that Valve originally contributed to the prize fund, this means Dota 2 players actually paid $33. 6 million to boost the fund by $8. 4 million. Valve pocketed the remaining $25. 2 million. Not bad for a free-to-play game developed by a company with around 300 employees (that would be a take-home bonus of $84, 000 each, in case you’re wondering).

The traffic volume for watching Dota2 matches is growing every year, as well as the prize pool of tournaments. A large number of professional teams attract new players to the world of DotA2. I myself became one of the fans of this game 3 years ago. I can’t boast of high ratings but I like the process of the game in any case. I also do not neglect rates, especially on The International. I know a few good sites that help you get up-to-date information about the match first hand, for example, dota 2 live score. This is a good option for those who are often busy.

Dota 2 really is more than just a game now. I mean, the amount of players is crazy high, there are tournaments, marketplaces where you can buy Dota 2 accounts, that's so cool. Sad that now I don't have much time to enjoy it all.
