There was some question as to how the compendium money would be distributed through the placings and it seems they have opted to keep a similar structure to TI2 and keep it top heavy with about a $750,000 difference between first and second.
Also! A schedule. I was going to type it but instead I'll just use Valve's nice image because it's really good. Wild Card Match will be this friday, immediately before prelims day one (which I think is the same as last year).
