Dota 2 – International 2015
The fifth installment of The International, a DoTa 2 championship took place at the Key Arena in Seattle, Washington. Qualifier phase started on May 25 and the main event took place somewhere from August 3 and August 8. And how much was the overall prize pool for the entire tournament? Only a whopping $18 million, the winning team called Evil Geniuses took home $6,634,660 of the prize; so each player of the team received more than $1.3 million. The prize they won is a significantly large amount of money especially if you take into account that they won similar tournaments that took place months before the DoTa 2 Championship; they took home over a million dollars then. Who said you had to win to become a millionaire? Teams that came in second to sixth place received over a million dollars too.
