The sky is the limit for Valve Software's crowdfunded prize additional prize pool for the annual Dota 2 tournament The International, as contributions to The Compendium have now passed the $6 million mark.

$6 million had previously been the highest listed stretch goal for the campaign, and having met that, another nine have been outlined all the way up to $10M.
It’s been only twelve days since the Compendium launched, and already the prize pool for The International has risen to astonishing heights, rocketing beyond the $6,000,000 stretch goal. Now we’re introducing several new stretch goals to aim for. Head over to the Compendium website to learn more.

Haven’t bought a Compendium? Now’s the time make your mark on the biggest Dota 2 event of the year. Activate your Compendium to get the Evolving Battle Point Booster, Couriers, Loading Screens, HUD, a vote for which hero will receive the next Arcana item, upcoming Immortal items, and much more.
That's already a whole lot of change for a videogame tournament. The International 2014 will take place in Seattle on July 18th.

It makes me wonder what Blizzard are doing to promote their game as esports. Starcraft and WoW arena(died a long time ago really) are being left in the dust.
