Prize Pool[edit]

The base prize pool was the same as the one used at the first and second Internationals. However, 25% of the revenue generated by the sale of the Interactive Compendium was redirected to the prize pool. The final prize pool was $2,874,380 ($1,274,380 added) USD.

Participants[edit]

Invite Procedure[edit]

13 teams were selected by Valve and were sent personal invitations to compete in the tournament and were announced during the week of April 23rd - 30th. The teams who were not directly invited had a chance to qualify through two qualifiers divided by geographical region. These invitational tournaments were appropriately named the Eastern Qualifiers and the Western Qualifiers. The winners of these qualifiers were directly invited to the tournament while the runner-ups of each tournament were flown to compete for the final spot in the tournament through a qualification game in Seattle.
