Prize pool Dota 2 The International 2018 reached .8 million
Dota 2 The International is one of the biggest eSports events of the year. The event started last week and runs until the final on Saturday. And the prize pool this time again set a record… but almost insignificant in comparison with the previous year.
If in 2017, proceeds from the sale of compendiums allowed to reach $ 24.78 million dollars, but this year managed to collect 24.8 (collection is ongoing, but a large growth is not expected). That is, the increase is negligible and in the following years the prize pool can begin to decline.
But even with the stagnation of fees, the prize Fund is still insanely huge. At the same time she Valve invested in him at least $ 2 million. The remainder of this year came from the sale of the military crossing. It costs $ 10, of which 25% goes to the prize pool. The same applies to additional costs in the framework of the pass.
According to the CNBC, last year in all tournaments Dota 2 total prize payments amounted to $ 38 million. Quite a serious figure, however, this year a couple times walked Fortnite. Epic Games has decided to invest 100 million dollars in tournaments 2018-2019 season.
