Dota 2 has a reputation for having the biggest prize pools compared to other esports tournaments. The International has the highest prize pool of all esports tournaments, with a total purse of $24 million USD. TI10, which took place in late August 2019, featured a total prize pool of $20 million USD.
The International 2019 was the biggest DOTA 2 esports event of the year in terms of the highest prize pool
The International 2019 was the biggest esports event of the year in terms of the highest prize pool. It was a record-breaking event that drew in over 30 million viewers and had a prize pool worth $25 million. This makes it number one on our list of largest esports tournaments with the highest prize pools ever seen by this point.
OG is the first European team to win The International.

The championship was held from August 2nd – 13th, 2018 in Vancouver and Seattle. The event had a total prize pool of $18 million USD, making it one of the most lucrative esports events in history. This year’s Dota 2 tournament was won by Team Liquid (TL), who defeated Team Secret 4-3 after playing against them for three days straight at Seattle’s KeyArena arena. It was also an all-European roster that made it happen—OG’s lineup included mid-laner N0tail and support player Misery who were both born in Germany but raised elsewhere before joining OG in mid-2015 along with Evil Geniuses’ Artour “Arteezy” Babaev as well as former Cloud9 member Kurtis “Aui_2000” Ling who left C9 due to differences between him and other members within their organization; he eventually joined Na`Vi where he would play alongside Dendi until October 2016 when both players parted ways due to personal reasons (Dendi wanted more freedom while Aui_2000 felt restricted).
Team Liquid and Newbee are the only teams that have won twice TI with Team Liquid winning consecutively.
Team Liquid and Newbee are the only teams that have won twice TI with Team Liquid winning consecutively. They also happen to be the only two teams in history to win back-to-back tournaments (TI7 & TI8). For example, if you were a betting website and were looking for a team that was likely to win again at The International 2019, you would most likely pick Na’Vi or Virtus Pro because they have been doing well so far this year. But if I told you that there was another team out there called “Team Liquid” who had been consistently placing well at tournaments since 2016 when they first competed during The Boston Major – one of my favorite events as an esports fan – then wouldn’t it make sense (if nothing else) not just because they’re good but also because they’re connected somehow?
China has hosted all TI events except for one.
China has hosted all TI events except for one. The first International was held in Cologne, Germany, and it was won by Na`Vi. In 2011, TI2 was held in Los Angeles and won by Invictus Gaming; they became the first team to win back-to-back titles at an international tournament (and still hold the record today).
The third iteration of The International took place in Seattle; this time around it was sparked by Team DK’s victory over LGD Gaming at The Summit 3 tournament which lead directly into their eventual victory as well.
Finally, after five years of waiting for an event like no other before it—one with such high stakes that even its host country had to wait until 2017 before hosting again—TI4 finally made its debut last summer when it returned home from Europe once more but this time went down southward instead of northward across continents!
TI10 will be held in Stockholm, Sweden, making it the 2nd time TI hosts outside Asia.
The first time TI hosted outside Asia was TI5 in Seattle, USA. The second time TI hosted outside Asia was TI9 in Shanghai, China. And now, the third time that it will be held in Vancouver, Canada.
The prize pool of this tournament will be $25 million USD or 43% higher than last year’s prize pool of $18M USD. This makes it one of the largest eSports events ever held by Valve Corporation (owner of the Dota 2 game).
TI4 had the lowest prize pool of all TIs with a total purse of $11,000,000 USD.
And so, the winner’s trophy is a concept that has been around for many years. It’s a symbol of victory and it’s meant to be given to the winner of each tournament. In Dota 2, however, there has never been one.
The first International took place in Seattle in 2011 and saw some great games played by teams from different parts of the world who were eager to show off their skills against each other. The main prize pool was $2,000,000 USD with an additional $100k going towards teams who did not make it into the top 8 at TI4 (this amounted up over time).
Dota 2 has the highest tournament prize pool among esports history
The Dota 2 Pro Circuit has been going strong for nearly a decade now. TI9 had a prize pool of $25,000,000 USD, TI10 had a prize pool of $25,000,000 USD, and so on. We can see that this tournament series is getting bigger and bigger every time! In fact, this year’s event was the largest one ever: it had over 21 million dollars in prizes!
The next season will start soon with its first tournaments taking place at this very moment!
