Well, it seems like the little red dot is going to have a particularly spicy October, and that probably goes double for our local Dota 2 community. After all, it's not every day (or even every decade, for that matter) that your country is selected to host what is arguably the world's most well-known esportstournament.

In atweet published on Sunday, Valve announced that this year's iteration of Dota 2'sThe International – referred to informally as TI11 – will be held right here in Singapore, and if previous non-Covid-affected tournaments were anything to go by, we can definitely expectsold-out crowds over at the competition venueswhen October rolls around.

Speaking of the venues, based on the image provided by Valve (above), TI11 will unfold at the Singapore Indoor Stadium as well as the Suntec City Convention Centre, though they do refer to it as the "Suntec Arena" here. Regardless, putting aside the fact that we were actually selected to host TI11, the other question that's probably on the community's minds is how big this year's prize pool will end up being.

After all, The International is never shabby when it comes to "the money", so to speak. The prize pools tend to increase each and every year, and for reference, the last iteration of it, namely TI10 featured a whoppingUS$40 million pot by the end of the tournament, with champion Team Spirit taking home almost half of it. As such, it's probably fair to expect that this year's iteration will hit at least US$42 million at the very least, and of course, all eyes will be peeled to see which team walks away with the Aegis of Champions.
