[Update] TI8 Sets Record For Largest Prize Pool Ever; Community Is Not Happy

Update: Something seems to be changing. Maybe our call has been heard. Stay tuned for more updates.

After The International 2017 which set an all-time record for the largest prize pool in the history of esports with a massive final amount of $24,787,916, everyone thought this was it. This was the limit. Well, Valve has proved us wrong yet again as the prize pool for The International 2018 is now currently sitting at $24,801,253, completely annihilating the prize pool of the last year’s TI tournament.

The International 2018’s Prize Pool has officially surpassed that of last year’s, making it the new largest prize pool in the history of esports as it climbs to almost $25,000,000. And to celebrate this new milestone, Valve is giving away 10 free Battle Pass levels. However, it seems the community is not pleased with these so-called rewards.

According to many users, it seems unfair that Valve is giving away only 10 Battle Pass level, after it made almost $100 million dollars in revenue, out of which $25 million is being kept aside as the prize pool for The International 2018. Just check out some of these responses down below:

We do agree with the community as 10 Battle Pass levels are nothing compared to the prize pool but since the developers have corrected their actions in the past, there is still a chance we will see a compensation for this record-breaking milestone.

Comment below and let us know what you think of all of this. Do you think Valve should give its Dota 2 players a much greater reward or is 10 Battle Pass is enough?

Unlike Professional Dota 2 players, Dani is toxic, aggressive and has zero gaming sense. But, his timely puns make up for everything. He has been playing Dota 2 since it was in its early access stage. And when he’s not, he spends his time writing about it.
