The International 2014: Dota 2 Championships
The International Dota 2 Championship is the world's largest Dota 2 tournament, based on prize pool. This event is the fourth tournament to bear the name 'The International.' It is commonly referred to as "The International 4" or "TI4".
Valve announced The International 2014 on March 31, 2014, which would take place from July 18 to July 21 at the KeyArena in Seattle, which is a venue with a significantly larger capacity than Benaroya Hall from the previous two years. The tickets for the event were sold out within an hour of going on sale on.
Eleven teams would receive direct invites based on their performance throughout the year. Four teams were determined by regional qualifiers, and one team was determined by a wild card qualifier between the runner-ups from the regional qualifiers.
The interactive compendium returns once again, with a quarter of its revenue going towards the tournament's overall prize pool. When certain prize pool milestones were met, rewards were unlocked, including a new Dota 2 game mode and visuals. Eleven days after the compendium went on sale, the prize pool had been increased from Valve's original $1.6 million to over $6 million, with all the rewards having been unlocked. By June, the total prize pool reached over $10 million, the biggest prize pool in e-sports history.
