Can TI10's Prize Pool touch the $40 Million Mark?

The prize pool of The International is soaring new heights this year as well as it has reached beyond the $39 Million mark. The 2020 prize pool is already setting exorbitant amounts for itself to accomplish next year and with another 10 days left till the Battle Pass expiration, the prize pool can reach even higher levels and we can witness a milestone of $40,000,000. As Valve had mentioned earlier, an added incentive of reaching this landmark will be 10 extra levels for every Battle pass owner.

Valve also released the Immortal Treasure 3 on the same day and stated that the Arcana Vote Results will also be revealed on October 9. The release of Immortal Treasure 3 has also likely resulted in a significant boost to the prize pool.

Despite a dismal state of the Dota 2 competitive scene and the subsequent declining player base at the moment, this immense contribution to the prize pool highlights the love, the community has for the game. TI10 has become the first esports tournament to achieve such huge prize money, all thanks to the dedicated fans of Dota 2.
