Dota 2’s International Prize Pool Distribution Revealed, Newcomer Streams Promised
With the International playoffs starting up on the 8th, Valve has revealed many details about the tournament through the Dota 2 website. This information includes just exactly how the $10 million prize pool - the biggest prize pool in the history of eSports - is going to be split. The first place team will receive 46% of the total, or rather, almost $4.8 million. On the other end, teams coming in 13 and 14th place will receive 0.2% of the pot, which still comes out to over $20,000.
In addition, Valve also announced their plans for streaming the International games. Users will be capable of ‘DVR-ing’ matches they’re interested in watching later, and Valve will also be rolling out a Multicast option for Phase Two of the event which will allow users to watch action from four games at once. 
Valve has also announced the Newcomers Broadcast feature. This will give users who are new to the game an opportunity to watch games in the International with commentary designed to help these users understand the games better as they watch.
