Its not even so much about the companies behind the games. Its more because Valve allows players/fans to buy compendiums which give buyers cool cosmetics and other stuff and enables them to unlock all sorts of stuff.
A portion of each sale goes towards the prize pool of the tournament. And they set milestones. For each milestone, which is essentially when the prize pool reaches X amount in set intervals, Valve unlocks more perks/rewards for all compendium buyers.
IT works really well as you can tell as they have consistently been able to break prize pool records.
Actually the players are mostly responsible for the prize pool by buying compendium or compendium levels. (and treasure chest for skins I think).
Dota players also get incomes from organisations eg: navi fnatic etc, etc, we’re talking about the income from riot not from sponsors or clans etc because dota players receive that swell.
Riot sponsors a league called lcs were every player participating gets a monthly income from riot as well as the organizations paycheck. A steady income is way way better than a bigger price pool at the end of the year.
so how prize distribution have changed in 2 years? At least there is majors now. Also 50 players make just 10 teams which is less than competed in the ti6. Not that the 13th-16th get 0.5% of prize pool 🙂still 20k
The 100th highest earner in dota makes almost the same as a top 25 player in lol and the top lol player onky earns the same as no.60 in dota, you say after the top 100 the earnings drop off in dota and become lower then lol, please show me some data to support that statement, also riot doesnt support players below the top 100, so why would they out earn dota players after the top 100 when they dont recieve salaries OR high prize pools – makes no sense and is inconsistent with the evidence we do have. A lot of times these players are still very young.
They needed E3 to announce new content was coming to Battlefront II that game in itself was a dumpster fire that needed an E3 Announcement to gain attention again cause it started out as the biggest dumpster fire in the history of man kind
I think the ship has sailed on Battlefront 2. They announced a new Star Wars game coming next year, it was surrounded in the conference by a bunch of “meh, ok fine” and when it dropped it had almost no impact. Then it was bookended by EAs new approach to alienate gamers, free to play (pay to win) mobile games. This fixed nothing for them.
I don’t believe Bethesda needs their own conference. I really don’t. Have your games at E3 but as a whole they could easily be shown during Sony, Microsoft and Nintendos showcases.
Same sports games for the last 10 years, but with more cancerous progression systems designed to force money out of you, we don’t care but the other games we’re releasing, oh and remember that amazing game series command and conquer you loved as a kid? Well get ready because we killed it and raped the corpse by making it a pay to win phone APP!
Every company stays in a circle of specific titles, that go on and on.
EA has Battlefield, Battlefront, Fifa, NFL,NBA blah blah blah now it gets Anthem and Sea of Solitude.Every game is a shooter for God’s Sake….even if it’s an off shoulder cam it is still a shooter.They had one beloved title from old days, Command and Conquer, and now we see a mobile announcement that i believe it will not get much attention.Where this whole developement goes? To fancy Graphics? 4k Res? Where is the creativity? in Sea of Solitude? If this was an announcement for Nintendo Switch, everyone would say (oh come on!!! Not another indie, give us some cool stuff etc.)
Haven’t seen something good from EA for a long time. Last game I played really much was Battlefield : Bad Company. Dont know where this plot goes…But I believe the company needs Writers. As many out there do.
