Today, on the 26th of August, 2020, Valve has recorded the largest prize pool in esports history: Dota 2's The International 10 now has $34,331k+ at stake, $32,731k of which was donated by the players through the Battle Pass, released 92 days ago. Over the same period, the previous TI's prize pool reached $32 million.


Every Battle pass holder will get 10,000 points for reaching this goal (approximately next week). The next goal is in $4 million from users, which will also grant additional Battle Pass points.

Here are the graphics on how the prize pool was growing compared to previous TIs.

However, Valve had announced a day before that they did not know when the World Cup would take place. On their Twitter, they complained about the COVID-19 pandemic and said they could not give exact dates even for the new DPC season.

Still, they've launched a series of videos and a hashtag #TIMoments, where people share their favorite memories and emotions about Dota 2's biggest yearly event.

Even with the OMEGA League running in full throttle, it is sad not to have The International this year. All we can do is focus on staying safe, wearing masks and do everything we can to fight the pandemic so we can get our beloved TI as soon as possible.
