This October, the prestigious DotA 2 tournament The International will be held in Singapore. This will be the first time the annual tournament is held in Southeast Asia, after traveling from the US to Canada, China, Germany and Romania.
Valve announced the good news for the Southeast Asian gaming community through a Twitter posts. However, the post only publishes the most basic information possible, the time frame and the venue.
Valve announced that this TI will be held in Singapore.
Every time The International (TI) takes place, the community whispers huge numbers of bonuses. The last three TI periods, taking place in 2018, 2019 and 2022 witnessed an increasing amount of money; we have 25.5 million USD, 34.3 million USD and 40 million USD respectively. When gamers raise the Aegis shield, they immediately become millionaires, money and fame will motivate teams to do their best.
Information related to the prestigious tournament will soon be announced by Valve. Right now, teams have been preparing for the TI qualifiers, and gamers who are passionate about the legendary MOBA game are ready to “donate” for the growing prize pool. This is also the reason why TI’s prize pool is so large.
Surely this year will be different, when Southeast Asian gamers – who are very passionate about e-sports – will have the opportunity to witness the teams competing on the big stage.
