For anyone who can still remember about an alleged Saudi Prince that spends thousands of dollar to get to the top of Dota 2 Battle Pass leaderboard. As reported by Dot Esports, the alleged Saudi Prince reaches lv. 9,000 in just a matter of two days. Today, four months later, he just reached more than level 100,000 making him the biggest spender for this year Battle Pass.
The alleged Saudi Prince a big fan of Dota 2 has been playing the game since 2016 with an IGN (In-game name) on steam of Purrrrrfect Angelic Cake Yuki. Since 2018, he has been participating in every Battle Pass event and topped the Battle Pass leaderboard reaching lv. 101,127 in 2018 and lv. 100,820 in 2019.
For this year, he reaches lv. 100,109, spending him a total amount of $41,676 (PHP 2,020,785) and 25% of that amount will go to the prize pool of the International 10. Considering the Dota 2 The International 2020 was delayed due to the pandemic and reportedly pushed back until 2021, he might further level up his Battle Pass to more than lv. 200,000 by the end of this year. Well, that still depends if there is a new challenger for his current in-game throne.
What’s more interesting, all of the Battle Pass you’ve purchased in the game are not automatically be redeemed all at once, you need to click through all of them to claim each of the rewards. Some comments in our social media post even jokes that the Prince would hire people to just open all of the Battle Pass treasures. “Sinabi din niya somewhere na may taga-bukas siya ng mga treasure. **** pre ganun ka kayaman”, Lance Tabilin said.
