Major prize upped to $1,000,000 *
Time: 2016-02-24 00:29
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Valve announced that from now on each major tournament's prize pool will be $1,000,000!

* Update: Prizemoney distribution has been added at the bottom.

With the first major of 2016, MLG Columbus, looming around the corner in a little over a month from now Valve have announced that the total prize pool will be increased from $250,000 to $1,000,000.

The initially crowd-funded events have featured a $250,000 prize pool since their inception at the end of 2013, with 7 such tournaments having taken place so far.


The majors gain a big boost in prize pool

The Seattle-based company announced this evening that from now on each major will have $1,000,000 up for grabs to be distributed among the participating teams.

"...The professional CS:GO community has been growing at an incredible rate. CS:GO tournaments are now among the largest esports events in the world, drawing global audiences of millions of viewers, filling massive venues, and garnering higher prize pools.

Professional CS:GO has grown, and the CS:GO Major Championships are about to grow with it." - reads an excerpt from the official post.

MLG also revealed that the distribution will undergo a massive change, as teams that exit in the group stage will barely get rewarded at all, while the winner will run away with half of the prizemoney:

1. $500,000
2. $150,000
3-4. $70,000
5-8. $35,000
9-16. $8,750

The next major, MLG Columbus, is set to take place from March 29th-April 3rd in Columbus, Ohio, USA. The qualifier where the final eight teams (the Challengers) will be found is set to take place later this week from February 26-28th, and you can see which teams will be participating here.

Nice.

expected
2016-02-25 05:12:33
but if NiP gets 8th place 7k isn't enough for Friberg to get deluxe cheesburgers :/

So volvo, plz even out prize money

Not 500k to winner
2016-02-24 01:44:24
i agree with you, they could make 1st place like 300ish k and distribute the extra 200k with the non play off teams and the teams that are at quarters
2016-02-24 02:56:20
wtf? why should the teams that dont get past the groups get more money? most of them are on a salary anyway and you shouldnt get rewarded for going out in groups
2016-02-24 03:50:21
+1
2016-02-24 03:55:47
not all teams are on salary plus they need to pay back what they expended on travels, food, etc and if u think that a little team salary is enough to live playing cs ur are just retarded
2016-02-24 03:57:49
you know that the majority of the prize pool goes to the players right? the org pays for travels, hotels etc and if the org cant pay for the team i think the team needs to find a better org
2016-02-24 03:59:43
Exactly. And the 500k for 1st place is only a motivation for the teams to fight on. And 'More fairly distributed money'?? Like WTF? Where do we live in? Fucking Socialism? :D
2016-02-24 09:53:11
Then how do orgs make their money other than sponsors? For example if small orgs like Renegades make to tournament, how do orgs make money?
2016-02-25 19:07:37
And who gives a shit mate? Orgs have their own shops, fanbase, valve stickers, ads as well as sponsors. Some of them of course take a % of the money that one team wins. Thats basically how they earn money, not to mention that many orgs not only invest into cs but also sc2, dota, league etc. But in order to stay on the scene and prosper, basically most orgs need to have good players that can actually win something (firstly they need to give one's team the opportunity to develop, but thats obvious I guess). You wont achive shit (as an org) with uber-noob players. So there you go! No need to spread the fucking lan money more evenly like some kind of socialists because its not the IEMs concern how one's org is doing. The scene is a rat race... well... the whole job market is, in fact. If you cant keep your shit together then... well... either you find star players or you disband. As simple as 1,2,3!

U know that actually tournament pays for travelling and hotel?
2016-02-24 18:02:45
whoops mb
2016-02-24 19:41:17
ofc you can like from csgo salary
device said they got offered 10k per month so you can think that any team (maybe exept lg) get 5k atleast


NA maybe even more
2016-02-24 16:26:10
these salaries only happen to top teams, if a team from lets say russia gets to the major, they have an org with very little money and they dont have a salarie to live on, how are they supposed to be better if they cant play cs full time for living ?
2016-02-24 16:40:11
Because we all know a big name team is going to win it, a big name team with a lot of money. If they distribute the prize money money more evenly then we can help establish the smaller teams.

This current prize distribution is basically helping the rich and shifting on the poor

2016-02-24 00:40:46
Yeah
2016-02-24 00:41:55
Prize is so high for winner and so sustainable competition. It should be around 300k$ and the rest should be distributed more equally.especially more money teams at 8- 16th places had, provides more competitive cs world.
2016-02-24 20:32:07
Oh, I am first now. Sick. Kappa

Well, it was about time after all those Majors. Hopefully it will reach Dota2's size :D Or at least get close to it :D
2016-02-24 10:42:22
Yea as long as the prize pool gets progressively bigger it's fine
2016-02-24 10:50:16
It won't, since TI is once a year, Majors are usually 3 or 4 a year.
2016-02-24 11:43:01
They could just make the operations add money to the price pools, or reintroduce eSports cases
2016-02-24 11:52:38
Valve didn't do jack shit.
It was the Seattle company who decided to increase the prizepool

2016-02-24 00:30:14
1.6 million from Valve. The rest is crowd funded.
2016-02-24 00:32:02
it's 3 million from valve for their majors and 1.6 million + compendium(18 million+) for the international
2016-02-24 01:00:57
Still better than forever 250k
We all know CSGO is like the unwanted child of Valve
2016-02-24 00:32:23
probably over 20 million, but it's community funded
2016-02-24 00:32:31
Time to crowd fund Majors boys, see if it gets to 20M
2016-02-24 00:33:11
Never been above 20 mill. Might next time, but not yet, and the vast majority was community funded.

2016-02-24 00:36:41
the csgo majors have more then dota majors :) i hope you see my point without telling you ;)

each team?
2016-02-24 12:28:16
divided by the 16 teams..
2016-02-24 12:51:36
not divided. depends.
2016-02-24 15:35:37
but DotA2 have big prizepool only to beat LoL with force and make it more popular, CS:GO is growing without this kind of PR. But still right step.
2016-02-24 01:36:46
I agree but the small prizepools of 250k$ were getting a little embarrassing. We were out shined by pretty much any other team based eSport. Even tho CS is the third biggest eSport in the world (possibly second)
2016-02-24 01:42:22
Ikr, especially from Intel :> poor company with no income from commercials, everywhere you look :'(

Hope they will put more money now to smaller LANs or make more of them, and without T1 teams.

2016-02-24 00:56:12
More than 250k is good!

But most people here seems to forget what happened to the dota2 community after they got shitloads of money for their "major"..

All the teams stopped attending other tournaments, and we as a community was left with just one tournament a year that had the best teams.

Im afraid this will happen to csgo as well :(
2016-02-24 00:56:41
ELEAGUE Season 1 Prizepool is 1.2 million besides it was a joke this whole time since teams got 5x-10x more money in stickers then for winning the major.
2016-02-24 01:03:15
Of course. I am just saying that I don't want the top teams to not care about other "smaller" tournaments. It is good for the community and scene that we got multiple tournaments with top teams attending.

Rather than _1_ tournament each year, which is happening in dota :)
2016-02-24 01:04:45
its only 1 million lol not 20 big ones like Dota and if anything this will encourage the other Esport orgs to up their salary pools to match the the Major or risk being relegated to T2 teams. Teams will always play but as the game grows so must their salaries. Remember in 2014 all the non majors had prizepools of only 30-50k now today we have 500k and 1.2 million non majors.
2016-02-24 01:10:02
So basicaly, you want more tournaments like Barcelona, aka ez money for top4 T1 vs top4 T3.
Okay, better make more small tournaments, 20$ 1st place, 5k$ second and put fnatic for each vs low teams? :O

Post edited 2016-02-24 01:33:37
2016-02-24 01:32:46
No, thats not even close to what I am saying..

I would rather have 4 x 250k tournaments than ONE 1mill tournament each year.

But like I said, we have more than one major each year, so this wont be an issue atm.
2016-02-24 01:38:32
That's the thing. But imho there is already too much of big tournaments. I remember two DH's/year and look now. Will see, have more pro games to watch is ok, but I hope it's not too much.

Don't get me wrong , it's a good thing but for crying out loud , do something about that anticheat or whatever.
2016-02-24 01:05:07
You are deluded if you think that pros from top10 are cheating

Wtf is this low minded community
2016-02-24 01:10:05
Actually it's you who's low minded and deluded since a couple of pros got caught cheating in the past , you know?

You really have to be the most retarded person playing/watching this game to believe that the scene is clean right now and that the temptation to cheat won't be bigger with $1mil prize pool.
2016-02-24 01:14:04
Did they get caught on lan? No?

And who where they? The only real pro - KQLY

rest onliners with low nab Sf
2016-02-24 01:16:41
But they did get caught , and it really doesn't matter when or where they got caught.
The fact is that they were cheating for quite a while and only got caught because they were retards.
Also , we don't really know when they cheated , was it only online or at lan but if they took that path of cheating they did it to win big cuz it wouldn't make sense to risk your career for small prizes.

Anyway , they only got caught because someone ignored the warnings to not use the cheat and the source code got in esea's hands and then in valve's but think about all the other players that we're careful and got even more careful after this episode.

no worries boii, at majors pc's are very securised and games are 100% secure :)

imagine if a pro would cheat and be vacced live? Prison for him.. so no WORIEEEZ
2016-02-24 01:35:47
No , they're not.

100% secure and cheat free would be absolutely no internet access.Everything setup with location based servers.
And most important thing , list with every player gear and the organizers providing said gear every match.

Now that would be 100% secure.
2016-02-24 01:38:11
and what can you actually know about securing at majors or other lans?

after DH Winter 2014 it's almost impossible to cheat on lan

online? sure but all big qualifications are being played on lan anyway

almost 0% chances that someone will be able to use cheats on a major or major quals

i obviously can't claim there are cheaters in majors but calling people deluded or mental is a bit too much. For such big moneys people will do everything to win, and it's a fact that many players dodged vac when esea revealed they found about those kernel-level cheats. hopefully nobody's cheating at that level but it's a possibility.
2016-02-24 01:52:10
Nice price money distribution. Let them grind for that paper.

500.000$ first and 150.000$ for second is a totally retarded difference
2016-02-24 01:48:15
IMO it should be 1 mil for first and nothing for the losers.
2016-02-24 01:52:06
I hope you're joking because if it was "winner takes all" teams like vexed (qualified for 2 majors in a row) or E-force wouldn't have had the opportunity to grow making the competition less interesting thus making it impossible for the top 3 or 5 teams to earn really big amounts of money.
If it was Fnatic winning uberly insane amounts of money 50% of the time and the rest of the time either NaVi, NV or LG then NiP or VP wouldn't even try and they would quit.

So the game would be played between 5 teams or less.

So obviously teams around 15-20th rank wouldn't develop and the game wouldn't grow.

404 logic not found, but expected from your username. They all make tons of money off the stickers, no team would ever turn down a spot in the major even if it was winner takes all, now if it was winner takes all sticker money and prize money then there might be problems.
2016-02-24 02:01:50
The stickers money is gone, now you have to play to win $$, not some sellout.

Bad b8 i knw
2016-02-24 02:03:45
Wouldn't work, all the money from the stickers is funding the prize pools, events, and teams who are participating in the events as well as Valve.
2016-02-24 02:11:58
This dude be like

IMO Winners takes it all because my fav team is Fnatic

2016-02-24 01:50:48
Nice, that's a notable upgrade

I think the next major will be the best one we gonna watch so far. Teams must be grinding hard right now.

Now make majors with 32 teams instead of 16, improve the group stages with better systems and we are home for a while.

Post edited 2016-02-24 01:55:43
2016-02-24 01:52:37
32 teams lol I hope your joking
2016-02-24 02:10:31
why not? :D

Obviously, with an even bigger prizepot.

I like the idea of watching a more complete tournament.
2016-02-24 02:11:41
It would be better to stay with 16. Theres simply not enough talent for 32 squads and splitting the prizepool 32 ways isnt good.
2016-02-24 02:12:57
Is the money splitted in 16 ways right now?, nope.

Not enough talent?, pretty sure cs scene has 32 capable teams all around the world. That anyway won't change the identity of the winner, the winner will be always the best :)
2016-02-24 02:14:33
Finally, I guess that having Malmo and Katowice with 250k and not being Majors pressured them into upping the prize pool. Now let's hope that we will get rid off Bo1 group stage and we should have much better tournaments.
2016-02-24 01:52:52

top tier teams?

100%
2016-02-24 02:12:17

2016-02-24 03:34:53
I vehemently disagree with the prizemoney distribution but at least it's a step forward

EDIT: Now that I think about it, with the way sticker money works, the teams that go out in the groupstage still see a nice payday. I guess this just incentivizes teams to win--stickermoney shouldn't dominate the equation

Post edited 2016-02-24 03:41:57
2016-02-24 03:40:07
Exactly. Lets say every team gets $500k from stickers.

Being the first CS team to make $1m in an event would be a target to fight for.

If the winner makes $750k and 9-16 makes $530k then I'd go to MLG as a holiday
2016-02-24 13:28:16
wow, there's a massive gap between 1st and 2nd...that's unfair, unless Envy wins and fnatic is 2nd.

well motivation comes when you get much money

if they get 15k, they`ll say... meh, we`ll just play like bots and still get some money

i would do 750k for first place, 200 for second place, and 50k for the loosers

Money is fine. $150k = $30k/person for not being a winner, pretty good deal

For those that don't compete (9-16) $8,750 should be enough to cover their flights so they're no worse off

sticker money is a nice bonus. Gonna buy $2k worth of adreN stickers
2016-02-24 11:50:22
Doesnt valve pay for hotels & flights?
2016-02-24 11:59:52
oh, then definitely fair

Giving them a good chunk of money for playing shit (9-16th) isn't going to encourage them to improve. Just give them a little taste then show them what they could have if they're able to improve
2016-02-24 12:06:57

2016-02-24 23:25:56
Dota International 2011: $1,600,000.00
League of Legends Season 2 World Championship 2012: $1,970,000.00
Dota Source 2: 2014 closed beta, 2015 open
CGS 2007 (CS: Source): $477,500.00 (was it even Valve to host it?)

CS:GO Major 2016: $1,000,000

As if Valve ever cared about community. Nope. They pay attention to what is bringing more money. So obvious.
2016-02-24 13:17:36
wasn't DOTA like $23 million?
2016-02-24 13:33:47
TI5 was $18,400,000
2016-02-24 14:26:35
lol world championship=1 per year=$1,970,000 per year
cs majors=3 per year=$3,000,000 + stickers per year
cs>lol
2016-02-25 00:50:21
Insane!
2016-02-24 13:28:25
holy shit!
2016-02-24 13:31:19
It's good, now the competition will skyrocket, same was with Dota 2.
2016-02-24 13:48:58
They should add the sticker money to the prize pool in the same way the premier league does it but less balanced (1st place only gets 50% more than 20th place -- wtf!)

assuming $8m sticker sales like last time
Valve keeps $4m but adds $1m to prize pool

1st: $400k + 19% -- $1.92m
2nd: $200k + 13% -- $1.24m
3-4th: $80k + 10% -- $880k
5-8th: $40k + 6% -- $520k
9-16th: $10k + 3% -- $250k

I'd be up for a bootcamp for a share of $2m

Nice! At least something is happening to right side! That`s right that in majors teams need to get big prizes!
2016-02-24 14:09:37

>MLG also revealed that the distribution will undergo a massive change, as teams that exit in the group stage will barely get rewarded at all

Thats not true at all. Teams that exit in groups get propotionally more than they used to.

Old distribution:
1. 40%
2. 20%
3-4. 8.8%
5-8. 4%
9-16. 0.8%

New distribution:
1. 50%
2. 15%
3-4. 7%
5-8. 3.5%
9-16. 0.875%
2016-02-24 15:00:05
