We’ve already gone over the “Top 5 Highest Paying eSports Games“, but now I think it’s time we take a look at the 3 Tournaments with the Biggest Prize Pools in eSports Tournament History! I’ll break the news a bit early and let you know that they’re all held by Dota 2 and League of Legends! What a surprise, right?
Number Three: LoL 2014 World Championship
Prize Pool: $2,130,000.00
Number Two: The International 2013 (Dota 2)
Prize Pool: $2,874,407.00
Number One: The International 2014 (Dota 2)
Prize Pool: $10,931,103.00
If you’re not a Dota 2 fan, that last number could be pretty surprising actually. That number leads the Top Prize Pools over every other Tournament and game in eSports thus far. Some runner ups were Call of Duty, having dished out $1,000,000 the past couple of years, CounterStrike dishing out near $500,000 and even Halo not far behind.
