And so thanks to the crazy fans from China, the annual DOTA 2 World Championship named The International has become a professional game with the highest bonus history in history, surpassing the Fortnite World Cup with the number Bonus of 30 million USD divided into professional gamer teams and individuals participating.
The International 2019 will take place in Shanghai, China from August 15 to 25. Currently when watching on Valve's website, the total value of the prize has been at 30,155,158 USD until 4pm on July 22, and it will definitely increase again because it is still possible to buy Battle Pass as a level up for Battle Pass to receive gifts, thereby contributing a quarter of the money you spend on virtual goods to contribute to the prize. This number was initially only 1.6 million USD, Valve's money went from his pocket to the prize, and it increased to more than 30 million thanks to the money he bought for "books."
Last year, Europe's OG won after an impressive reversal against China's LGD, won 3 – 2 in the BO5 series, thereby winning over 12 million USD. This year Chinese people expect them to win the championship, and that is why the DOTA 2 neighbors love to give up money to support the tournament. The International's prize until now is always higher than the previous year, when TI8's total prize pool last year was only $ 25.5 million.
