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
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 ?
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.
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.
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
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.
Expected from the best esports game!
dont @ my name.
the most crazy fact about TI is no one has won it twice, we have 8 orgs - 40 diff players.
last year we saw break the cycle of regions, i hope this year someone win it twice.
anyway the best 2 weeks of the year for me.
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?
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.
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.
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.
No it never went down, 2015 to 2016 was not the biggest increase and it has not reached +9 millions from last year yet.
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
Its because its crowdfunded, 25% of their sales go to the prize pool, for csgo a cut of the sticker sales(not sure what percentage ive heard stuff ranging from 25%-50%) is given directly to teams/players.
