DotA 2 International starts next week with Php787 Million prize pool




DotA 2 International tournament is scheduled to start next week and the prize pool has reached a record of Php787 million as of press time.


This is the highest prize pool for DotA 2 since the international tournament started several years ago. This amount could still balloon since there’s still a week left before the tourney starts.

The prize used to be funded only by Valve but this has been changed to include pledges from DotA fans via digital “compendium” which fans could purchase to follow the event and contribute to the prize pool. Last year, the prize pool reached Php491 million with the champion, team Newbee, raking in Php225 million.

A total of 16 teams are set to battle against each other starting August 3 to August 8. The tournament will be held at Seattle, WA in the United States.

    Sige lang mga bata ubusin nyo ang mahalagang oras sa dota. Magdamag kayo sa internet cafe para pag nalaos na yung laro e magjanitor o bagboy kayo sa puregold. Ok na din na dumami ang malulong sa dota para konti na lang ang pipila sa interview ng mga HR sa makati at ortigas.

      Inggit ka pre?

    • archie says:

      Bakit ako maiinggit? Pinupush ko pa nga ang mga bata na mag dota para mas marami ang magtrabaho sa mcdo at puregold. Pag mas maraming magdodota mas marami akong magiging casual employees. Mas panget ang record sa school mas may dahilan ako na wag bigyan ng increase.

      Bakit masyado kang sarcastic? Di malalaos ang technology. There’s room for improvement and enhancement everyday. Baka ikaw ung magulat one day at wala ka ng trabaho since computerized/robot na ang gumagawa? Di ka naman nila inaano, why don’t you mind your own business? Yung iba jan suportado pa ng pamilya and you don’t have any rights to judge them. Get a life, please?

      Robot papalit? Nasisiraan ka ng bait hindi mangyayari yan dahil lahat ay kayang gawin ng AI. Hindi ako mawawalan ng trabaho dahil ako ang nagbibigay ng trabaho at pabor sa akin ang dumami ang bumabagsak sa school dahil sa dota. Mga Philippine moba players talaga sobrang balat sibuyas. Kaya ayaw kayong kalaro sa global servers dahil sobra kayong pikon e. Iyak at depensa pa more.

      Tell that to COC players. :D

    • Scumbag says:

      Iyak? At first place sino ba umiiyak jan? Kung wala kang pake eh bakit ka pa nagcomment? Wala naman silang pake sayo. Admit the truth that mas mayaman pa ang mga DOTA 2 Players kesa sayo. DOTA 2 is my past time, not a profession. Kaya wag mo kong itulad kung bobo ka maglaro. That’s life, noob. :D

    • xxx says:

      nakalimutan ata ni archie na hindi lahat ng successful ay nakatapos ng pagaaral. Diskarte na ang labanan ngayon, kung nakatapos ka nga pero kulang ka sa diskarte dun ka sa kangkungan pupulutin.

    Naglalaro ko ng dota since wc3 pa (dota 1 sa pinoy) hangan naun. Pero nakatapos ako at nagtatrabaho sa isang bank dito sa makati. Sigurado ako nde lang ako ang may mgandang trabaho kahit adik sa dota. Kaya manahimik ka jan archie. Lakas ng loob mo magsalita ng ganyan porket anonymous ka sa internet. Ayusin mo buhay mo.
