The organizers of the upcoming The International 2019 postponed the dates of ticket sale because they think that the platform Damai, which had to work on the distribution of them, might sell tickets to speculators.
Such problem appeared before the start of League of Legends 2017 World Championship, which LAN final also took place in China. After tickets went on sale there, the website was working with regular issues. When all issues were fixed, it appeared that all tickets had been bought by bots. The same situation happened before the beginning of The Chongqing Major 2019. After the same problems, the website was fixed and offers with prices, which were four times overvalued, began appearing on the Internet in 5 minutes.
The International 2019 will take place in Shanghai on May 20-25. The starting overall prize pool will traditionally begin with the sum $1,600,000 and will be donated with the help of players’ purchases of Compendium and its levels.
