SC's payout are actually small compared to LoL
i don't think DOTA's passed LoL's 5 million dollar prize pool, but i could be wrong.

And this is coming from a SC fan where we look down on LoL lol
It didn't but IIRC LOL's $5million prize pool is spread out over multiple tourneys whereas the International was one single tourney ($3 million). Not just that though, but the production values for the International were insane. Not only were you able to spectate in client but they also hired a TV production company to setup their livestream.
