Home I eSports I eSports I Ti7 Prize Pool Surpasses $19M Mark
The Battle Pass was released more than 50 days ago and the prize has already reached $19million, only around $1.5M behind last year’s TI total prize money. To put it in simple words, The International 2017 prize money is officially the second largest in eSports history, as of yet.
The crowd funding for the prize pool will close in less than 49 days. The Battle Pass weekend sale took place this weekend, which played a crucial role to bring the digits to $19M. Also, the Siltbreaker Campaign Second Act and Immortal Treasure III will also come to the game client soon. By looking at the pace of this year’s campaign for the prize pool, a new record will be set this year as last year’s $20,770,460 prize money mark will be crossed.
Less than a week ago, when the prize pool reached the $16M mark, the growth stopped. Some rumors started to surface which speculated that this year’s TI wouldn’t even reach the $20M milestone.
Although the game received quite a black lash as being called “dead game”, the DotA 2 community and Valve will now rejoice to see that this weekend’s sale has boosted the growth of the prize money in a matter of days.
The Bundle contained 80 Battle Pass levels as well as four of each of the Immortal Treasures I and II. The bundle was non-tradeable and was priced for $19.99 until June 26.
As with all other Battle Pass merchandises, no one could avail this offer twice (according to the DotA 2 official statement) and 25% of the sales go into to the Ti7 prize pool. However, you could purchase the bundle from the Steam store as many times as you wanted.
In the past week, a lot happened in the world of DotA 2 as Valve finally revealed which teams have been directly invited to TI7. Also, the qualifiers for the event took place over the weekend which exhibited exceptional skills of the players from multiple regions across the globe.
So, the hype is real for the biggest eSports event of the year with less than two months to go. Only time will tell what the final digits will be for the prize money.
