It’s time to mark your calendar and ready your wallets, because The International 2022 (TI11) Battle Pass is coming in September

After million tweets asking, and a reply under every post by a Valve employee, we finally have the date of the The International 2022 (TI11) Battle Pass. Announced in a tweet by Dota spokesman Wykrhm Reddy, we can now confirm that Battle Pass will be released on September 1st, 2022.

The tweet ends months of speculation. And it finally answers the question that has filled discussion boards, replies, and basically any conversation about Dota 2 for the better part of the last six months. 

This edition of the Battle Pass is starting slightly later than some might expect, with it starting just a month and a half out from TI11. However, we know from previous posts on the Dota 2 website, that the Battle Pass will continue throughout TI and after the event itself.

TI11 2022 Battle Pass Price Pool?

The question remains then, will this Battle Pass once again surpass all records? Traditionally, the TI prize pool has been supplemented by the Battle Pass, with 50% of the earnings going towards the prize pool. This has seen the prize pool for TI, already the biggest in esports, rise to in excess of $40 million dollars.

What’s more, with the Battle Pass continuing throughout TI and beyond it, we may not even know what the full Prize Pool is until after TI11 has concluded. This all leads to a crazy situation where fans of a team might be able to bolster the prize pool after the fact. Not happy with the prize your team gets? Well time to buy some more levels I guess!

Overall, fans are just excited for The International 2022 Battle Pass. Every year, Dota 2 fans, whether they care about TI, or just want the cool skins, voice lines, and other cosmetics, dole out hundreds of dollars individually, and millions upon millions globally. This year will be no exception. But we’re all holding our breath to see if this is the first year since its inception that The International Prize Pool doesn’t rise.
