Dota 2 Crowdfunded Prize Pool Exceeds Last Year’s $2.8M in Less than a Day

Dota 2
Valve

Valve’s crowdfunded Dota 2 2014 world championship, The International, has surpassed last year’s prize pool in less than 24 hours.

In order to help pay for the big prize for its 2014 world championship Dota 2 tournament, Valve started selling the Compendium and has broken its 2013 prize pool during the first day of its crowdfunded campaign. Valve’s Dota 2 Compendium costs $9.99 and allows fans to join a fantasy league (no, not that kind of league), which gives exclusive access to live match streams, the ability to make predictions and a reward-like system for choosing the winners.

Valve is also contributing stretch goals that depend on where the crowdfunded campaign for the prize pool ends. Last year, Valve’s prize pool totaled $2,874,381. Currently at $2.9 million in less than 24 hours since the campaign’s launch, Dota 2 will be getting an All-Random Deathmatch mode in the future just for making last year’s quota. When the campaign reaches $5 million (which it likely will), Dota 2 will be getting a 1v1, mid-lane-only matchmaking option. Finally, breaking $6 million will let Compendium owners customize one of their starting base’s buildings.
