Valve's 6th International pro tournament for Dota 2 today broke the eSports prize pool record. The 16 best Dota 2 teams in the world will fight it out for a share of the record-breaking $18,580,479 (at the time of writing - the live updated total can be found here) prize pool next week and the winning team of five can expect to walk away with around $7 million.
The record was previously held by last year's Dota 2 International, which managed to achieve a prize pool of $18.4 thanks to community contributions (in the form of a cut of the revenue generated by a purchasable in-game compendium for the event and other cosmetic DLC Valve released for the game).
The continued growth of the player base and a similar compendium-styled round of DLC has propelled this year's total to new heights and it will probably break the $20 million mark as there are still just over two weeks left to go before DLC purchases stop contributing to the prize pool.
