After sitting at $4 million only just three days ago, Dota 2 fans have kicked in an extra $1 million in prize pool funding for their upcoming The International 2014 eSports event.
Valve originally kicked in just $600,000 to start the prize pool off, with users pitching in the rest since its debut only just this weekend gone. The rather rapid increase is all thanks to a $2.50 donation from any player purchasing the Compendium, an all-in-one digital in-game book that offers users the chance to interact with fans and eSports players.
More details about The Compendium, which allows fans to keep up to date with competitors and matches, and its fundraising stretch goals are on The International's official site
. The International will be held at Seattle’s Key Arena From July 18th to July 21st.
