Show me the money; New Battle Pass, No Crowdfunding

Valve released a new Battle Pass but where is the money going since TI10 is fully funded and they have not reported what the funds are earmarked for? 

 Along with Nemestice comes a Battle Pass, which has a ton of stuff in it, including the much-awaited Spectre Arcana. 

Sweet right? Who doesn’t love a new Battle Pass with all the bells and whistles to throw our money away for? Well…. it turns out…. not many. 

The TI10 prize pool is already fully funded and has been for some time, thanks to the Battle Pass released last year. 

The final total for the TI10 prize pool has clocked in at $40,018,195 when the crowdfunding and Battle Pass purchases ended this past weekend. That is a 2401.14% increase from the original base amount of $1.6 million.

Only 25% of the sales contribute to the prize pool meaning that $153,672,780 has been spent on purchases by fans across the globe.

The previous year, The International 9 prize pool reached $34,330,068 ($32,730,068 added).

So inquiring minds want to know “What is this Battle Pass for?”

There is no clear indication whether this is a standalone Battle Pass or whether a percentage of the money from it will be used to sponsor any of the upcoming tournaments or DPC League Season 2022. 

It has ALWAYS been the case that the Battle Pass earnings were earmarked for International Prize Pools.
