the money is in asia
2019-07-21 14:25
alot is from asia but average EU player spends like 10 euro for battlepass +levels which equals 10*500000=5M euro and thats more than csgo major +stickers probably. But I bet if csgo does something similar, operation +levels that rewards you with keys etc they would reach 20m easy. But this would "crash" normal skin values and that is not what valve wants
2019-07-21 15:03
csgo doesnt have the playerbase to reach 20+ mill let along for it to be easy

lol why are you that sure? volvo doesnt support csgo as much as dota because dota has riot as their rival
2019-07-21 16:25
rival ? valve doesnt give a single shit about riot , they have their own product and it makes them money its business rivalry is created by the community , out of everyone in csgo player base do you think more than 20% are willing to spend money on financing a tournament with that low number and valve 75% to them 25% to the tournament fund what makes you think that you can reach 20+ mill easy ?
2019-07-21 19:16
if financing the tournament you get reward alot of people will

i was in that community believe me cs much worse than anything. at least average age of dota much higher.in cs, even on global mm some -16 toxic slav kid starting toxic about nothing.i never seen that in dota high rank maches.
2019-07-21 14:48
You sure haven't played more than a month. Dota is full of ruiners and crybabies who destroy their items if they aren't let play solo mid/carry.

toxic is good
2019-07-21 14:49
It is way more toxic than CS lots of people simply throw because they can't go mid (and it's way more common than in CS, I very rarely get teammates who throw because we're doing badly). That being said, half the time people just don't communicate, but if you compare the toxicity level, DotA 2 is worse. But it's still a million times better as a game than League.

It's crowd-funded. Although Chinese investors play a huge role in the prize pool, it would've been the same if it was hosted in NA once again.

2019-07-21 14:32
yes, its 30 million, because only 25% of compendium goes to the prize pool, the rest gaben take, so the prize pool its 30 million
2019-07-21 15:15
So is that right yeah? Example winner TI just got part 30 million not all 30miilion you bring home that why im not surprise,, even you need share result not just player winner

Its not 30 million to the winner, its a 30 million prize pool, so its split among the top teams with higher up teams getting by far more.

In fact it is 120 millions on which Gaben take 3 parts and leave 1 part for all TI players.

Watching the terrorists align their crosshairs for smokes 1.5 minutes into the round is entertaining and fast-paced? hmmmmm
2019-07-21 14:53
Boring? No. Best for viewers? No. IMO CS is still superior in terms of viewing experience but not by a large margin. Dota is still very entertaining and the hype around TI is amazing. Higher viewer peaks? Lmao Dota has much more viewers because China. Also Dota prizepools>>>>>>>anything Also more majors, 4 majors this year+TI

ure stupid if u think csgo is more entertaining to watch than dota 2
2019-07-21 14:58
You clearly don't watch dota
2019-07-21 15:02
L M A O so you like watching player standing afk for someone to push for a minute. then stand in smoke execution where 15 secs totally decides how the round goes. win a pistol then win a anti eco then full eco = win 20% rounds for victory. shit events where some random team makes a fluke run and never wins anything. shit format where same teams are direct invites just because they were top 8 last major, no matter how they play recently. dota maybe a slow game but nothings more kreygasmic than watching a 40 min team fight. not to mention TI9 alone has more prize than twice of all majors in 6 years / all csgo tournaments in a year. so you can cry all day.

I'd like to see LGD or Vici Gaming taking it all, since its in shanghai and china are angry after last year. or maybe puppey taking his 2 nd TI as he and kuro are the only ones who made to all 9 TI's.
2019-07-21 15:10
I'd like to see OG win again, to break the 2 wins record and the 2 win back to back at the same time. But Secret is favorite I believe.
2019-07-21 16:17
So far so good
2019-08-17 16:17

Most of the prize poll is crowd funded though the Battle Pass (i contributed myself) Now tell me, what does csgo has to offer? Game full of cheaters with a joke of anti cheat and 64 tick servers. Who would spend money on this?
2019-07-21 15:08
>"Game full of cheaters" >static.hltv.org/images/bigflags/30x20/BR.. >must be silver
2019-07-21 16:02
People aren't crowd-funding TI because they want to, that's just a biproduct of them wanting to buy battle passes which a lot of people use to make money off (I'm not sure if you can still, but I do remember you used to be able to literally just sell a small fraction of what you got from the battle pass, and get more money than you spent). It would probably be same case (although a lower amount of money) with another operation if they used 25% of the sales to contribute to major prize pools.

ez money for ma boy RTZ. Dota2 is always entertainment to watch, so they deserved that prize pool.
2019-07-21 15:53
dota has always led since 2012 idk why you act surprised. CSGO despite not being paid more is actually doing really well. Fortnite 2yo game has overtaken us too I think but it doesn't make their sport more spectator-friendly. You still earn a decent amount of money unlike a decade ago just be grateful for csgo to give you the easiest money of your lives.
2019-07-21 15:59
Because it's a very large new record? Between 2017 and 2018 the prize pool actually went down, and the largest increase was 3 million between TI 2015 and 2016, but now it went up by almost 9 million which is insane.
2019-07-21 16:08
No it never went down, 2015 to 2016 was not the biggest increase and it has not reached +9 millions from last year yet. 2013 $2,874,380 2014 $10,923,977 2015 $18,429,613 2016 $20,770,460 2017 $24,787,916 2018 $25,532,177 2019 $30,003,818+

Valve doesn't have to organize 30 million dollar competitions to csgo because csgo has zero competition whereas dota 2 is constantly competing with league of legends, that's why it feels like valve is shitting on csgo in general compared to dota 2

What? It counts. Do you think Valve releases a new Dota 2 patch every month? They tweak bugs and improve other minor aspects as well, nothing major.
2019-08-17 16:41
I'm not saying that it's 30 million, but the players in the tournament get a lot more than just 1 million from stickers and other stuff.
2019-07-21 21:38
I made a post back during IEM Katowice about how Valve should have used the money from the pass for the Major towards the Prize Pool it probably would have netted at least a few million.
