Dota 2 International 2015 Compendium Bristleback Announcer Unlocked

by William Schwartz


The prize pool for the Dota 2 International 2015 tournament has just reached a colossal $13,000,000 which means another stretch goal has been unlocked.

By passing the $13 million stretch goal owners of the Dota 2 International 2015 Compendium will receive a Bristleback themed announcer pack, when it has been made by the game developers. Valve has released an interesting description of the pack: “Let the rough-and-tumble wit of Bristleback lead you to your next victory with the Bristleback Announcer and Bristleback Mega-Kills items.”

Valve initially set the basic prize pool to $1,600,000 with fans able to increase the prize pool via purchases of the Dota 2 International 2015 Compendium and Points. When a player buys a Compendium, or Compendium Points, 25% of the cost is automatically added into the prize pool. This means that $11.4 million has been added into the prize pool by fans of Dota 2.

The next stretch goal is at the $14 million mark where Valve will design new weather effects for Compendium owners. The final, currently announced, stretch goal at $15 million is a “special” Axe Immortal item and a longform comic. The Axe Immortal is most probably going to be a new weapon and ‘dunk’ animation, as Valve have commented that Axe would be able to “chop his enemies to pieces with his new Immortal item.”
