In an interview with Inven, Clearlove has confirmed that the prize money Edward Gaming won at the Mid-Season Invitational will be doubled.
Q: I understand that there are a lot of investments made by the Chinese pro gaming organizations, was there any incentives that were promised to you?
Clearlove: I can’t reveal everything but I can tell you this: If you win the prize is doubled!
—Clearlove to inven, 2015
Other sources have also said that all prize earnings have been doubled to team members and staff. In addition, PDD informed stream viewers that he received 6666 RMB ($1073.62 USD), and other pros and ex-pros have been given gifts. The latter is not confirmed, as it is so far only a claim made by PDD on stream.
China continues to celebrate Edward Gaming's victory over SK Telecom T1 at the Mid-Season Invitational on forums and in the League of Legends client, while the team is currently enjoying a vacation in Los Angeles.
