With the World Championship Finals just completed this past weekend it is good to see some of the facts behind this monster of a game.
In case you missed it the Season 2 World Championship just finished with a prize pool of over $2,000,000 and a first place prize of $1 Million. With over 20,000 people attending the finals and 900,000+ viewers watching a live stream the Taipai Assassins took home the $1 Million Grand Prize
It’s hard to believe some of those statistics but they are all true! With users averaging over 1 Billion hours played per month it is easy to see why the game is such a heavy hitter in the industry today. But is it enough to justify $1 million in prizes? Will that drive even more fanaticism into the game?
