VALVE GIVES BIG $ BOOST TO SOUTH AMERICA’S REALMS COLLIDE TOURNAMENT
Looks like the often down-played South America region is finally getting some deserved attention!
According to a recent Twitter post by Ramon Beltran, marketing director of South American 4D Esports, the second season of the local Dota 2 Realms Collide tournament will come with bigger rewards ($75,0000, to be more precise) thanks to the invaluable support of game developers Valve.
This is the second South American partnership for Valve in a single month: The developers announced a cooperation deal with Peru’s Movistar Liga Pro Gaming only a few days ago, that included a $45.000 prize pot collab for their largest tournament.

Biggest Tournament in the Region
In the organizers’ own words, posted via @Esports4D on Oct 16th: “Warriors from all across South America are preparing to compete in the BIGGEST tournament in the history of South America.”
Valve’s impressive monetary contribution comes as a breath of fresh air for a region that has often been disregarded in the larger esports scene, and one that was particularly struck by the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic, which forced the cancellation of the limited number of locally-based esports events. The increased $75,000 prize pot is a major rise to the first season’s prize, estimated at roughly $10,000 USD.
The Valve-sponsored Realms Collide event will feature some of the region’s biggest team names, such as Thunder Predator, Team Unknown and Infamous, and it is scheduled to kick off on November 9th, running until Dec. 6th, 2020.
