Dota 2: TI 9’s Prize Pool Hits $30M USD

Dota 2's largest tournament of the year, The International, has hit a total of $30M USD for its prize pool.


The International has always been a very special tournament when it comes to Dota 2. Not only is it the most important and prestigious event of the year but it is also the one which offers the biggest prize pool. Some of the players won’t admit it (Sumail did last year), at the end of the day, money matters a lot, especially in Dota.

The International 2019 Prize Pool Madness

The International 2019’s prize pool has broken several records. Ever since Valve released this year's Battle Pass, the prize pool has increased a vast amount. In comparison, last years’ TI prize pool was “only” $21M USD by this point last year.

What’s even more astonishing is the fact that there's still nearly a month left until TI 9 begins. This means that the prize pool will continue to increase. Of course, Valve is to “blame” for this miracle because the cosmetics this year are just top-notch. Also, let’s not forget that they just released Invoker’s Young Persona. This will definitely boost the prize pool even more because, in order to get it, players need to get their Battle Pass above level 305.

 

Dota 2 Player Rewards

The $30M USD Milestone means that Valve is gifting players a free 10,000 Battle Pass points. This translates into 10 levels, which is not bad considering the fact that players get it for free.
