The prize pool for the Dota 2 esports tournament The International 2020 has set a new record. At the moment, the tournament has a little over $ 34.4 million, and the amount continues to grow.
The prize pool is generated from deductions when players buy a Battle Pass, so while gamers pay for it, the prize pool will increase. According to previous statements by Valve, the current Battle Pass will be available until September 19, so the amount will definitely have time to increase slightly. However, while the fate of the tournament itself is unclear, since due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the start had to be postponed, and it is not yet known whether The International will start this year.
As for the amount, it will be divided in a certain proportion among the top 18 teams, with the winner of the tournament receiving almost half.
