What is the Dota TI9?


The TI9 just begun, and the stakes are enormous. With a prize pool of around 32 million dollars, the TI9 is one of the most anticipated and competitive esports competitions in the world. You may be wondering why the TI9 has such a large prize pool, or what it even is. Well, the TI9 stands for the Dota 2 competition called The International 2019. The way that qualifying works is 12 teams qualify through the Dota pro circuit, and 6 teams qualify through regional qualifiers, meaning there is a team from China, Southeast Asia, North America, South America, CIS, and Europe. The reason that this tournament is such a big deal is that it is the concluding tournament for the Dota Pro Circuit for this year, meaning that whoever wins the TI9 becomes the best Dota pro team in the entire world, which is why there is such a large prize pool.
