The multi-million dollar tournament is being partially crowdfunded again this year by sales of the Compendium.

The Compendium website now shows the total prize pool has topped $4 million, unlocking a Mini Pudge companion.

Valve's original stake was $600,000; the rest of the funds are have been raised by the $2.50 pot contribution from the $10 Compendium cover price.

That's over 1,360,000 sales since the scheme launched last week.

Wow.

Valve has stretch goals in place right up till $6 million - which suddenly seems perfectly reasonable given

Thanks, Ausgamers.
