Valve's International Dota 2 Championship prize pool hits $15 million

03/07/2015 09:48:53

Dota 2 developer Valve has hit a new milestone for the crowd-funded prize pool for The International Dota 2 Championship, crossing its stated goal of $15 million in total cash prizes for the tournament.


Valve opened the fifth International's prize pool at the end of April of this year with a base amount of $1.6 million. This was then supplemented by the TI5 Compendium, a digital companion and program for the tournament including a leveling system, challenges for players to complete and rewards to unlock — along with microtransactions aplenty. Higher levels reward players with Compendium-exclusive in-game items, including character skins, couriers and pets.


Players can continue to buy Compendium points and unlock additional rewards in Dota 2 until the conclusion of TI5, which means the prize pool will in all likelihood continue to grow.


Valve's 2015 International Dota 2 Championship begins on August 3 and goes through August 8.
