In case anyone still needed convincing that esports is truly massive, the Dota 2 tournament to be held next month just accrued over $30 million in prize money. That’s the largest pot ever offered for such a competition, and judging by the amount it’s increased in just the last few months, it’s going to be even more massive this time next year.

The 2019 Dota 2 International, the largest tourney for players of Valve’s MOBA, currently has a prize pool of $30,200,471 (at time of writing — it’s still going up). That makes it the biggest ever offered for a single esports event, though that’s not really a surprise when you consider how the money is raised. For those who don’t know, the base prize money is augmented by a portion of battle pass sales, meaning it increases every time someone buys a Dota 2 battle pass. So it could potentially be even more money by the time the tournament happens in August.
