TI11 Raises Less Money Than TI10 and TI9 in First 10 Hours
Following the release of The International (TI11) Battle Pass, it was expected that the prize pool record would be broken yet again by the community. However, this year’s Battle Pass prize pool did not manage to reach the $5 million mark in the first ten hours of release making it the least successful battle pass release since 2018. Considering the fact that the duration of the battle pass is also shorter than the previous versions of it, it looks like TI11’s prize pool may not break TI10’s record $40 Million USD.
Valve announced earlier today that there would be two parts of the Battle Pass for this year, the first one for TI11 and the second one will be released on November 3rd, in conjunction with Dota’s Diretide event.
TI11 Battle Pass Raises Less Money Within The First 10 Hours.
When Valve released The International (TI11) Battle Pass earlier today, it was expected that the prize pool record would be broken yet again by the community. However, this year’s Battle Pass prize pool did not manage to reach the $5 million mark in the first ten hours of release, as the Dota 2 Prize Pool tracker shows that TI11 is currently third in the comparison, below The International 2019 (TI9) and The International 2021 (TI10) prize pool records.
This might be due to the community’s reaction, seeing that the Battle Pass will be released on two separate occasions which might cause the players wallet to be a bit tight as they have to save for two different Battle Passes.
TI11’s prize pool will slowly increase as the Battle Pass was only released today. However, the decline in revenue within the first ten hours might concern Valve as it indicates a decline of purchases for the Battle Pass.
TI11 Battle Pass mainly features two Arcanas, two Hero Persona’s, Sticker Capsules, Voice Packs and the return of Cavern Crawl. The Battle Pass also includes custom towers, cosmetics, sound packs and more as the first part is released today to the public, with the second part releasing on November 3rd.
