Dota 2 tournament The International boasts $10m prize pool

The International 2014, this year’s rendition of Valve’s official Dota 2 tournament, has garnered more than $10m for its prize pool.

The game’s official site currently shows the pool at $10,120,673, with more than half of the amount raised in around five weeks time.

The figure is driven by Dota 2’s community through the sales of The Compendium, a digital offering that gives access to various ways of participating with The International tournament.

Valve itself put in $1.6m into the pot, and the community has since added $8.5m – surpassing every one of Valve’s 22 stretch goals along the way.

The winner of the tournament will receive a minimum of $5m at this point, and that amount is expected to rise further ahead of next month’s event. It takes place in Seattle July 18th-21st.
