Razer is proud to announce the $2.2 million win at The International 2015 by LGD, one of the world’s most recognized eSports brands, which is also sponsored by the company. LGD’s third-place Dota 2 win was part of a record $18.4 million prize purse crowdsourced in large part through Dota 2’s in-game marketplace. The International now stands as the most prestigious eSports event to-date. Matches were held in front of a sold-out live audience at Seattle’s KeyArena, former home of the NBA SuperSonics. Millions more fans watched the event unfold online.
