$20 Mil Dota 2 International Main Event Starts Today

With a record-setting, community funded prize purse of over $20 million, the sixth annual International Dota 2 Championships begins today at Seattle’s Key Arena.

The International’s Main Event features 16 of the world’s top teams battling for a spot in Saturday’s final match.

Those unable to attend in person can tune in via many international broadcasts, on traditional screens and via the Dota VR Theater. A host of local venues are again hosting pubstomp broadcast events as well.

The International was first held in Cologne, Germany during the 2011 Gamescom with 16 of the best Dota 2 teams in the world competing for a grand prize of $1 million.

In 2013 the prize pool was bolstered beyond Valve’s contribution by Dota 2 player participation in the Interactive Compendium, driving the total prize pool to over $2.8 million, up from $1.6 million.

This year the Compendium has driven the prize pool over $20 million.

Dota 2 is a free-to-play, online action strategy game created by Valve (Bellevue, WA based makers of multiple game franchises and the leading online distribution platform, Steam).
