Team Liquid Wins Dota 2's $24 Million The International Tournament

LGD Forever Young LFY The International Dota 2

LGD Forever Young LFY The International Dota 2

Four out of the six top teams were Chinese, and the other two were Liquid itself and Virtus.Pro, regional rivals.

The next day, the scraps of LFY were left to Team Liquid for the taking in the lower bracket finals. The victor moves on to face Newbee in the Grand Final. In fact, Liquid is the first squad to ever enter the Losers' Bracket after the first round of Winners' Bracket play and go the distance to win The International. Despite brief signs of life from Newbee, a full team wipe inside the Radiant base led to a tap-out at 27 minutes, putting Liquid up one game in the best-of-five finals. Still, their victory was foreshadowed in their victory at DreamLeague Season 7's Atlanta finals, where they took first over other global teams.

Check out the TI7 Viewing Party and Pubstomp at High Grounds Cafe by TNC in Tomas Morato, Quezon City. Before this, there has never been a 3-0 grand final.

A team once considered to be one of the best, North Americans Evil Geniuses have performed poorly in this year's worldwide, not winning a single match: being beaten by both Newbee and Russian team Team Empire early in the tournament - both ending in a 2-0 loss. In game two, an aggressive early game from Newbee earned the Chinese team a strong start, but key teamfights and stalling tactics on the part of Liquid allowed carry player Amer "Miracle-" Al-Barkawi to recover and ultimately overwhelm Newbee.

In today's first match I like Team Liquid.

Liquid's victory over Newbee prevented what would have been the first team to win two global tournaments, after their victory at TI4. The tournament, which is nearly entirely funded by the Dota 2 community, has seen many great stories over the years, including an Evil Geniuses win that proved North American organizations had a place in a scene often dominated by European and Chinese teams. The team, buoyed by captain KuroKy's incredible drafting skills and an in-form MinD_ContRoL, showcased just what the new patch for Dota 2 is capable of producing, exhibiting a number of early game compositions as well as a few come-from-behind victories.
