China alone had almost a million viewers, while in Russia, the total number of fans online was 164,000. This is a record for the major, where the prize pool is $1 million, with first place receiving $500 thousand. Compared with the largest annual DotA 2 tournament – The International – it is not the tournament with the biggest money. But that’s the beauty of eSports that the number of zeros in the prize money doesn’t matter but the skill of each individual participant and the whole team is what makes the tournament alive.
