With the finals for Dota 2's The International 2014 eSports even approach, the prize pool just keeps on growing thanks to the ridiculous Compendium sales. In just over two weeks since its launch, the largest prize pool in eSports history has hit another milestone, with Dota 2's pool accruing another $1 million to top it at $10 million in funding so far.
The Compendium website
has been tracking funds since its launch, unlocking various in-game benefits for both those who purchase the digital book and for those who just happen to enjoy the game. Now that the $10 million stretch goal has been met, players will have the chance to predict the outcome of games they play in the early stages, pending a Valve update.
Team Matchmaking, 1v1 mid-lane practice, and a Favorite Hero tracker were recently added to Dota 2 during the steady flow of Compendium purchases. Currently no other tiers have been listed on the website past the $10 million mark, but we are sure Valve will be updating it soon enough.
The Dota 2 International finals begin July 18 in Seattle, Washington.
