The Dota 2 International 2015 prize pool has today passed the $9,000,000 stretch goal.
Rising from the basic prize pool of $1,600,000, 25% of the price of purchases by gamers of the Dota 2 International 2015 Compendium and Points is automatically added into the prize pool. By passing the $9 million stretch goal owners of the Dota 2 International 2015 Compendium will find they now own the Wyvern Hatchling courier.
Players can also unlock additional skins for their Wyvern Hatchling courier by levelling up their compendium. There are multiple ways to level up a Compendium. To name only a few players can gain levels by buying Compendium Points, complete Hero challenges and make International based predictions.
The next stretch goal is at $10 million and will see the third and final Immortal Treasure being unlocked. Future stretch goals after the next Immortal Treasure include a Desert skin for the Dota 2 map and a new Music Pack. The International 2015 still over 75 days away so it looks likely the total prize pool will eclipse that of last year’s event and unlock all of the prize pool stretch goals.
Valve has also released a couple of small patches for Dota 2 over the last few days. Here are the notable changes and fixes:
- Fixed a bug that could cause the last player on Dire to be unable to purchase items
- The hero who gets a kill is now always considered as part of the AOE for gold bounty purposes
- Moon Glaives now properly kill Zombies (they now work like Flak Cannon and Split Shot)
- The courier’s “Retrieve Items” ability and the “Courier Deliver Items” button will now work properly if you have items on the courier but no items in the stash
- Fixed a recent bug with Techies’ Land Mines when flying units were nearby
- Fixed the smaller Mud Golems not leashing back to their camp
- Added missing portraits for unlocks for the Virtus Werebear courier
- Fixed VMT error for Vengeful Spirit submissions through the workshop
