Valve extends TI10 Battle Level Bundle sale after huge prize pool jump

Valve has listened to fans, and looked at its bank account, and extended the Battle Pass Level Bundle Sale to July 2.

The Battle Pass Level Bundle Sale arrived as expected on June 25. Traditionally, the event is a weekend sale to offer a great deal for Battle Pass owners and boost the The International 10 prize pool.

The bundle includes 120 Battle Pass Levels, nine Immortal Treasure I, six Immortal Treasure II, and three Immortal Treasure III.

Despite the late release of TI10 Battle Pass, it did not affect the annual Weekend Sale which surprised some fans. The Battle Pass Level Bundle Sale goes hand in hand with Steam’s Summer Sale.

In 2019, a bug allowed users to buy multiple Battle Level Bundles, allowing them to balloon their Battle Pass at a significantly lower price. The initial rule was one bundle per one account only, but the community found a way to get around that rule. Players could buy the bundle on Dota 2's website, through the in-game Dota 2 store, and on Steam market. Valve tried to address this issue last year by giving the owners who only purchased one bundle the option to purchase another one. Valve found something of a compromise this year by offering players the opportunity to buy two.

The bundles cannot be gifted or traded.

Though some speculated that TI10 prize pool wouldn't break the record set by TI9, the Dota 2 community has proven otherwise. TI10 is set to shatter the $34,330,068 record set by TI9, with the prize pool closing in on $25 million with over two months remaining before the battle pass ends.

The Battle Pass Bundle drove what has been an $8 million dollar jump in the TI10 prize pool over the last few days.

Fans have pointed out that the Weekend Sale was released early and it might be an indicator of a second sale before the Battle Pass season ends.

There’s still a lot of exciting stuff in store for Battle Pass owners. Anti-Mage’s Hero Persona and Windranger’s Arcana are the top two most notable upcoming rewards.

Players can purchase the Battle Pass Level Bundle for $29.99.
