Craziest Video Game Tournament Ever: TI5

We have all heard of the MOBA Dota 2, and this year’s annual tournament is even bigger than last year.

The main event started on August 3rd, and it ends on the 8th. The TI4’s prize pool was $10,930,698 in total. The team Newbee took home the grand total of about $5M.

However, this year, it is even bigger. TI5’s current prize pool is $18,048,880, and it is to get bigger.

You’re probably asking yourself, “how the hell can it get bigger?” The answer is simple. Dota 2 has an in-game item, called a Compendium. The Compendium can give the player cosmetics or other types of items. It is about 10 bucks, and 25% of it’s sales go to the prize pool.

Tune into the epic tournament on Twitch, YouTube, and ESPN, or watch in person!
