Is this an official or an estimate? Will it be continued? Why only 3 teams? ;/

After all, every subsequent team there earns almost the same amount of money, which does not change the fact that these are dizzying sums of money. If dota teams are so rich, what will happen in 2-3 years?


It’s all right. This is the official data from the finished tournaments with the total amount of prizes won.

Unofficial results are much higher and can be very different from the tournament results because many sponsorship contracts and other agreements cannot be publicly declared.

For example, also players themselves earn even on the popularity. Here similarly like with football players. Some celebrities may gain more from just being active in community media than from playing the game. Football or Esport. There is a similar analogy here.

So, explain to me why is DOTA so unpopular in Europe?
