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

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

Liquid won as the only surviving Western team after four Chinese Dota 2 teams made it into the top six. Still, their victory was foreshadowed in their victory at DreamLeague Season 7's Atlanta finals, where they took first over other worldwide teams. None other could do so with such persuasiveness and prowess as Team Liquid, the victor of this year's Championship.

In one of the most intense and heart-racing best-of-three series at The International 7, Liquid edged out LGD Forever Young in the third game of their lower bracket match. LFY specifically went undefeated until the last day, though at that point they had already secured the top Upper Bracket slot for the main event. 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. Newbee will be taking home US$3.9mil (RM16.7mil). After all, LFY took down Newbee 2-0 in the group stage, and the upper bracket 2-1 Newbee victory was hard-fought.

The Grand Finals, then, were set: Newbee, the slayers of the dominating team, versus Liquid, the up-and-coming assassin which kicked and stomped through the lower bracket to perform on the final day.

Team Liquid came 8th past year, taking home the comparatively low $311,557 cash prize. Before this, there has never been a 3-0 grand final.

So Jose Mourihno has strengthened in the areas he's needed to and they look stronger and will challenge for the title. He said: "When I joined Manchester United past year I thought immediately that we needed a Matic kind of player".


The three series played yesterday were TL vs.

They kept their lead through the mid game, making sure that Amer "Miracle-" Al-Barkawi's Terrorblade was miles ahead of Du "Monet" Peng's Morphling. There is one very simple thing Newbee's opponents have to at least consider, (I think this is essential but who am I to tell them what to do) ban Earth Spirit.

Tensions around the Korean Peninsula started to rise in light of the implementation of the North Korean missile program. He also retweeted a US Pacific Command message that said US planes stand ready to "fulfill a #FightTonight mission".


The final boss of TI7 is waiting for Liquid. The team claimed their Aegis of Championship, popped open a bottle of champagne, and quickly departed to celebrate the historic win. West sentiment, as Chinese fans were out in full force while the North American audience, still loyal to Team Liquid from their NA days, fired back with furious roars at every opportunity.
