  • Team Liquid Wins the Dota 2 International Tournament, $10.7 Million Grand Prize

In a largely unsurprising turn of events, each western team has been knocked out, barring Netherlands-based Team Liquid, who are set to face LGD.Forever Young in the semi-finals on Saturday the 12h of August. Liquid won the championship after a 3-0 victory over Newbee, the champion of the upper bracket who hadn't lost a single series the whole tournament.

But, despite getting through the group stage with a 13-3 record, Team Liquid fell to the lower bracket on day one with a 1-2 loss to Invictus Gaming. Team Liquid almost dropped out of the competition and had to fight its way back in the lower bracket of the tournament.

But Newbee came back with a vengeance during the main event when they met LFY during the Upper Bracket Finals, which determined the first Grand Finalist.

Liquid move on to the Lower Bracket Finals to face LFY.

Team Liquid has won the Dota 2 worldwide 2017 tournament, taking home a record-smashing grand prize of $10.7 million.

Check out the TI7 Viewing Party and Pubstomp at High Grounds Cafe by TNC in Tomas Morato, Quezon City. Riding that momentum, Liquid took the next two games decisively, albeit in ways that called into question the team's ability to take on the formidable Newbee lineup. With Nature's Prophet finally banned out, early skirmishes kept going in Newbee's favour and Liquid became fodder, biding time for Amer "Miracle-" Al-Barkawi's Alchemist's to accumulate the items he would need to take back control of the game. The team claimed their Aegis of Championship, popped open a bottle of champagne, and quickly departed to celebrate the historic win. Meanwhile, Liquid fans are likely ecstatic for team captain Kuro "KuroKy" Salehi Takhasomi, who has failed to place in the top six of the global since 2013, as a member of esports organization Alliance despite appearing at six of the seven Internationals. 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. LGD.FY finished third, earning $2.4 million.
