Valve was able to overcome the bar of $ 20,600,000 in 31 days. Last year, The International 2019 for the same period was able to earn $ 16,400,000.
Over the past two days, there has been a particularly sharp jump in the increase in prize money. Over this period, more than $ 4,000,000 was added to The International 2020 prize pool. This move is related to the release of the Battle Pass kit, which included 120 levels and several Immortal-grade chests.
Recall that previously Valve cut the prices for the Battle Pass for players from Russia. The combat pass was released on May 25, and with its release, guilds, mini-games in mini-pauses and other functions became available to players.
