Team Liquid wins Dota 2 Championships, takes home $10.8 million

LGD Forever Young LFY The International Dota 2

Congratulations to Team Liquid for a breath-taking performance at The International 7!

For as easy as Team Liquid might have made it look toward the end of The International 7, however, the journey to the Grand Finals was incredibly hard.

Team Liquid took the grand prize of US$10.8mil (RM46.4mil).

The Top 3 teams are set. From there, they battled through the lower bracket with impressive wins over Team Secret, Team Empire (who upset and eliminated Evil Geniuses one game prior), Virtus Pro, before being faced against two Chinese powerhouses in LGD and LFY. Liquid faced a number of teams in the lower bracket that were widely favored over the European Union squad, including LGD.

Even though TL defeated Empire, Resolut1ion had an unbelievable run for a team I considered to already be one of the weakest going into the event. 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. Before this, there has never been a 3-0 grand final.

In today's first match I like Team Liquid.

This year's tournament saw 18 teams from six regions - North America, China, Europe, Southeast Asia, CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) and South America - competing in The International, which is often dubbed the "World Cup" of Dota 2. 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.

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

Team Liquid, coming in from the loser's bracket, closed out the match and were sitting on a 2-0 lead against Newbee, with one game between the team and a $US10 ($13) million finish.
