Just under half of the $5.2 million dished out over the three games went to—no surprise—Starcraft 2, with $2,525,775 changing hands across the year. That works out at just over $200,000 a month.
The games making up the remainder of the top three, DotA 2 with $1,698,500 and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 with $1,010,000, had their prize funds boosted significantly by big-money tournaments that paid out $1.6 million and $1 million respectively.
Battlefield 3 will be the next game to play host to a huge prize tournament as the Worldwide Conquest event which is set to kick off some time this Spring has a $1.6 million prize purse.
