Is the Battle Pass for the International 2021 Canceled?
Every year, besides being excited for the many bets offered by Esports betting sites, people are also eagerly waiting for the Dota 2 International battle passes. Battle passes are a good way to obtain skins and many other things while also directly supporting the big event. But after The International 10 was postponed and a new date was confirmed, people started getting worried. Many believe that the Battle Pass will be canceled.
Will Attendance Be Possible?
At the moment, it is unclear whether The International 2021 allows fans to attend. Valve wants to make sure everyone will stay safe, so it’s not clear yet whether the Dota 2 International will have a media or crowd presence this time.
While things are expected to be better in August, it’s still too early to say what is going to happen at the event.
Is the Battle Pass Cancelled?
According to news released recently, the prize pool for The International 2021 would be as high as $40 million. This amount was generated thanks to the Battle Pass back in 2020. People assumed that in 2021, another battle pass would be offered. However, Valve might do something else with the amount, which may cancel the battle pass. So, everyone is wondering what is going to happen with the $40 million.
“We’ll be shipping two separate events over the coming months instead of one overarching summer event.” Valve declared. “The first will arrive in mid-to-late June, and another will follow sometime after The International ends. Neither of these events will fund The International prize pool, as the TI10 Battle Pass prize pool remains to be claimed.”
People are disappointed not only because there may not be any battle pass this year but also because Valve mentioned how the prize pool money will not be added to the prize pool of the Dota 2 International. So, chances are it might not be given to the eSports professionals that participate in the event.
In the meantime, people at least have the chance to check betting sites and place bets for their favorite team. Bets will keep the event exciting, even if Battle Passes will not be released this year anymore.
