Dota 2's circuit and Valve are often under heavy scrutiny for the discrepancy between majors, which ultimately has The International weighted much more heavily than other events. Ultimately, Riyadh Masters brings a prize pool that comes close to rivaling the international at 15 million dollars, whereas most other majors typically hover around the $1 million USD mark. Sustainability often comes to question in top esports titles, and as such, most have moved to a regular season into playoff models, whereas Valve's titles, Dota 2 and Counter-Strike, have maintained their open circuit. Riyadh Masters is an event spanning 8 weeks at the heart of Saudi Arabia and will be featuring new challenges and experiences to be unlocked with each week.
