Dota 2 - The International 2019
The Dota2 World Championship comes to its ninth edition, which runs from Aug. 20-25, promising to have the world's biggest (* again *) e-sports award.
With just over a month to start the tournament, the prize pool has not stopped going up and has already set records, surpassing last year's total prize pool. In 2018 reached the level of 25.5 million dollars, and in 2019 still 37 days before the start of the competition we already have 26.5 million dollars. It will easily be broken the goal of 30 million.

The rank below is created by me, has no validity, but I think I calculated fairly.
Being champion gives you 200 points. Second gives 80, after all twice in second is not worth any title. 30 points for the third and 20 points for the fourth.
*PSG.LGD is the former LGD Gaming, just the name changed due to its partnership with the club Paris Saint-Germain
