DotA 2's The International prize pool hits $6 million
The International, the DotA 2 tournament backed by Valve, will take place from 18-21 July and will feature a prize pool of $6 million thanks, in part, to support from the community.

As with last year, compendiums were sold with $2.50 of each sale going to the prize pool. The Compendium is an interactive book that allows spectators to interact and participate with the event, while earning rewards. A variety of stretch goals were announced, including a new game mode, chat emoticons and special HUDs, and all have been unlocked thanks to the prize pool hitting $6 million.

The International 2014 will feature a total of 16 teams, 11 of which were invited, 4 who qualified via regional qualifiers, and 1 wild card qualifier. Tickets for the event have sold out, but it will be covered live on and is sure to boast impressive viewer numbers once again.

If you’re interested in finding out more about DotA 2 and The International, Valve released a documentary titled Free to Play, which shows the scale of the event and just how much it means to those involved.
