The Making of International 10 Prize Pool
Courtesy of Covid-19 affecting most Esports activities, Ti10 was also amongst the list. Fans became enthusiastic about the fresh content when Valve launched the TI10 Battle Pass. Despite the event postponed, players were still able to make a contribution to the prize pool through purchases of battle passes.
The arrival of the Ti10 Battle Pass each year is highly welcomed by the Dota 2 community. The developers, taking into account, consistently show affection for the Dota 2 audience and overwhelming figure of Battle Pass buyers with various unique items and hero cosmetics.
This year’s Battle Pass’s highlight cosmetics include the Anti-Mage female persona, the Pudge persona and the Wraith King, Queen of Pain, and Windranger arcanas. Besides these feats, more items like Immortal Treasure 3 and Trove Carafe have yet to make an introduction.
The History of Dota 2 and Esports is in the Making
TI9, with a massive prize pool of $34,330,068 in the previous version, exceeded the TI8 prize pool and comfortably created history in Esports.
Although there would be no actual event in the coming months, The International 10 is looking pretty good. It will be interesting to see whether the Ti10 prize pool hit the anticipated $40 million target. Also, Ti10 Battle Pass will continue selling Battle Levels until it expires on 19 September 2020.
