Only three days since the TI5 compendium was released, sales are going through the roof, outpacing the TI4 compendium purchases in the same time frame by over 36%.
Merely 63 hours after the TI5 compendium became available, The International 5 total prize pool had already broken the 5 million dollar mark, showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
At 1 pm GMT, on May 4, the total prize pool has reached $5,286,879. If we take away the $1,600,000 Valve chipped in, we’re left with $3,686,879 raised by the community.
However, only 25% of the proceeds of each sale contributes to the tournament’s prize pool. Therefore, the Dota 2 community actually spent $14,747,516 on TI5 compendiums and compendium points, over three days, leaving Valve with a $9,460,637 gross profit.
Should this be an indication of the trends to be expected and continued, The International 5 prize pool could potentially surpass last year’s record breaking prize of $10,931,100 – the largest in eSports history.
In order to raise the total prize pool to this year’s $15 million goal, the Dota 2 community would have to spend $53,600,000, leaving Valve with over $38 million on their hands.
