The Dota 2 International prize pool just keeps on trucking along, passing the lofty $8 million mark over the weekend.

The huge prize pool is for The International 2014 — the biggest Dota 2 tournament of the year — and Valve is documenting the astronomical growth of the purse on the MOBA game's website. The prize pool is funded by fan donations and support stemming from the release of The Compendium, with donations unlocking various tier rewards ranging from new hero skins to game modes for both Compendium owners and the general public.

Since its debut a few weeks ago where it surpassed $4 million in just under a weekend's worth of being live, the compendium sales have since broken record after record, making it the largest prize pool in eSports history. Currently stretch goals go all the way to the $10 million mark, with the final tier offering a "victory prediction taunt" that will let you cast your vote early in the game on who will win.

For more on the Compendium and its features make sure to throw a successful hook at the official website. Don't know what Dota 2 is? Check out our review by the most obsessed Dota 2 fan you'll ever find, David Harrison.
