TI12 Prize Pool and Standings: What’s at Stake?

Valve has decided to move away from the traditional Battle Pass system, which has historically played a crucial role in funding the prize pool of previous TI events. 

As of October 11, the prize pool for TI12 stands at $2.962 million. However, this figure is expected to increase, with the deadline for purchasing the Compendium set for November 17. The Compendium traditionally offers fans various in-game rewards, Battle Pass levels, and a share in the prize pool.

This change in the prize pool system might result in a lower total compared to previous years, as not all Dota 2 players purchase the Compendium.

TI12 Groups and Teams: Who’s Competing?

A total of 12 teams received direct invitations to TI12 based on their Dota Pro Circuit rankings. The remaining eight teams earned their spots through regional qualifiers. Let’s take a quick look at the invited teams and their rosters:
