Price money to world cup set records
The World Cup prize money once again sets the record. If you could only guess what game we are talking about. It’s like sooo unpredictable, right?
It’s only a little over a week before the biggest tournament in Dota 2, The International, kicks off, but the prize money for the competition continues to rise. No wonder, in fact. This happens almost every year: people get agitated about the upcoming event and keep buying in-game goods dedicated to the event.
The prize pool has reached over $ 32 million, which is impressive. It is the highest sum ever for an esports tournament and the winning team receives half of the sum.
Dota strikes again. Or it’s better to say that Dota fans strike again, cos we know that The International prize pool mostly comes from the pockets of players all over the world. And this time they have spent a lot.
The prize pool for The International increases every time a Dota 2 player buys some exclusive content in the game, called a Battle Pass. The typical content of a Battle Pass is skins for some specific heroes in Dota 2, player cards, and event-dedicated challenges.
The International 2019 begins on August 15, when 18 teams will be moaning about the enormous amount of money.
