The starting prize pool was announced earlier in the year at $1 million, but thanks to REQ Pack crowdfunding, an additional $500,000 has been added to the pool, with the total continuing to increase every day.
ESL says that more details on the event, including format, registration and more are forthcoming in the coming weeks.
