Although the prize pool of this year’s TI is heading toward being one of the lowest in 10 years, with it being around $3 Million USD, the games might still be as intense as they were in past years, since it is the biggest celebration of the game.

Will Team Spirit secure its second TI victory, matching OG’s record or will Topson work his TI magic to lead Tundra to a consecutive title and at the same time become the only player with three TI wins in history? Or perhaps Talon Esports will embark on a run for the ages, gifting Southeast Asia its inaugural TI title? Get ready for TI12 as some captivating storylines are set to unravel.
