The first day of The International 10 Battle Pass , but the prize pool for TI10 is already surging forward at a record-breaking pace.
At the first day mark, RM37.4 Million ($8,587,734) has been raised by the latest Battle Pass, according to the Dota 2 Prize Pool Tracker. The previous first-day record was achieved last year, hitting RM34 Million ($7,814,391).
For comparison, TI4 just six years ago took more than 22 days to cross the RM34.8 Million ($8 million) mark.
The champions of TI9, OG, were famed for their liberal usage of the Battle Pass-associated voice lines and sprays.
The Battle Pass’ delayed release seems to only have drummed up even more excitement in the community—and Valve has delivered with a plethora of cosmetics and features. This year features two Personas and three Arcanas for some of Dota 2‘s most popular heroes, transforming the ever-popular Pudge into a fluffy doll and genderbending the iconic Anti-Mage, while providing new sets for Wraith King, Queen of Pain, and Windranger.
