The International 3: DOTA 2 championship with an unprecedented prize fund started




What is eSports? This is a competition in the various disciplines of the game around the world. Different in size and popularity. Different in prize pools. StarCraft II, Counter Strike, DOTA 2 – the game list is quite long. Today begins The International 3 – Championship DOTA 2 (development of Valve) with unprecedented in the history of eSports prize money: more than 2.5 million U.S. dollars.

On our site there is sometimes mention of the gaming industry, starting gaming mice and finishing filming the movie based on the popular game . That’s why we could not go past the most expensive virtual championship sports.

No joke: first prize – 1,391,590 dollars. Given that the first Ukrainian team won the championship, and the second took the second place it is, the chances of winning players from the CIS are quite high (although the Swedes and the Chinese are the favorites).

DOTA 2 – game in the genre of MOBA-based development Valve DotA (map of WarCraft III), whose community on Steam is estimated to be the biggest. At this point, the game just came out of beta status, but they believe that everyone else is in it (you can only get an account in the queue).

Despite this development of the game, the championship The International has broken all records in terms of prize money. Not surprising enough money from Valve, and advertising game, and the company is very good. As cybersport whole.

The International Championship of 3 passes on the traditional system of double elimination, the main action will take place from 7 to 11 August at Benaroya Hall in Seattle. Concert Hall Valve specially rented for the duration of the tournament. For prizes (8 places receive cash prizes) will battle 16 teams from around the world. In contrast to the WCS, recaps can be (and are) internationalized.
