Educational program on the main tournament on Dota 2: how to win 24 million dollars - RIA Novosti, 8/7/2017


Tournament on Dota 2 The International 2016
MOSCOW, 7 Aug — RIA Novosti, Ivan Vorontsov. On the seventh of August the playoffs of The International 7 — the informal World Cup in Dota 2 which prize fund has come very close to a mark 24 million dollars start. We answer the main questions of the main cybersports event of year in the world. Why The International is so important? In 2011 the Valve company (the developer of the game Dota 2) has invited 16 strongest teams of the world on Dota for participation in a tournament which main objective was in advance of a new game, however TI 1 had a distinctive feature — enormous prize fund: 1,6 million dollars, and at once one million got to winner team. By then the cybersport existed for a long time, however volumes of prize-winning were far more modest — by 2010 in the world has been played in the sum less than six million dollars, and Starcraft II were the main disciplines and Counter-Strike.TI 1 has turned consciousness of developers, players and various brands. Counting of history of modern cybersport — a full part of show business is conducted with that tournament. Where does pass? In Seattle, on Key Arena. Earlier this platform was house for local basketball club — Supersonics, pass all largest concerts in the city here. Capacity — is more than 15 thousand people. The cost of the ticket for decisive matches on Friday and Saturday is 200 dollars, and in all six game days — at once 300 (18 000 rubles). Whether it is worth mentioning that there are no tickets for a semi-final and the final on sale any more. From where 24 million in prizes? Prize fund is formed as follows: Valve provides only habitual 1,6 million dollars, other money comes from ordinary players to Dota 2. They can buy the so-called compendium and within about two months to increase his level, investing own money. Together with increase in level users receive various in-game values (generally the objects changing appearance of characters) which at the same time don't influence balance of the game in any way. From all "investments" of users 25% go to prize fund — simply to consider that Valve will earn more than 75 million dollars to tax deductions. Nobody can raise as much money? Can, but don't do for different reasons. For example, Riot Games, the League of Legends developer — the most popular cybersports discipline in the world — can offer more, only prefers to use means differently. Actually Riot pays a peculiar grant to players in one and a half tens regional divisions. Similar approach allows to concentrate at the game and not to depend so on results.© RIA Novosti / Dmitry Vinogradovamfetamin and cybersport: a gold-rush without doping контроляDota, as well as many other cybersports disciplines — a moment game. Literally two-three won matches define whether your team will win, for example, 350 thousand dollars or won't go to The International at all. Similar approach seems to many experts wrong for what Valve periodically to
