$11 million: TI prize pool continues to break records

posted by SmittyW.,
It's been less than a week since the release of the new Battle Pass, yet the prize pool of The International 2019 has almost grown to $11 million. It seems as if this year's prize money is going to set another record in esports.

Last year it took the community more than three times as long to collect the same amount of money. By now, Dota fans have added some $9.5million on top of the $1.6 million base prize pool. This is an increase of $2.4 million.



If people keep on spending so much on the new Dota in-game content, the record of 2018 is going to be broken in no time. Also exceeding the $30 million that are going to be distributed at the Fortnite World Cup is a strong possibility.

Have you already purchased the new Battle Pass? Do you think Dota is going to overtake the Fortnite prize money eventually?
