We were pretty shocked to hear earlier this week that Valve was not only debuting the strategy game Defense of the Ancients 2 at Gamescom later this month, but debuting it with a tournament featuring over $1 million in prize money. Valve’s “International Dota 2 Championships” is set to be the biggest prize pool ever offered at a video game tournament.

Not to be outdone, Activision has announced that at the first annual Call of Duty convention, Call of Duty XP, they too will be offering up $400,000 to the winning team and $1 million in prizes for their tournament featuring the latest CoD game, Modern Warfare 3. Here’s a breakdown of how it will work via the official Call of Duty XP site where you can enter the tournament.
