The International 2017 Grand Final

Share

Although Liquid earned a few teamfight wins throughout the mid game and late game, LFY's advantage proved to be too much to handle.

The next day, the scraps of LFY were left to Team Liquid for the taking in the lower bracket finals. 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.

Coming up through the loser's bracket, are both the first team to have ever swept the grand finals at TI, and also the first to win after dropping in the first round of the winner's bracket. Still, Newbee leaves with a second place prize of nearly $3.9 million.

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

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 today's first match I like Team Liquid.

As game three opened, Newbee faced the prospect of a second place finish, and changed their drafting strategy to favor early to mid-game push and objectives.

The International is the most exciting time of year for Dota 2 fans - a ten day-long odyssey that tests the strength of the game's greatest players and squads that comes in early August each year. The seventh annual Dota 2 event in Seattle was like the Super Bowl of esports, with a record prize pool of $24 million this year, compared to $20.7 million a year ago. Meanwhile, Liquid fans are likely ecstatic for team captain Kuro "KuroKy" Salehi Takhasomi, who has failed to place in the top six of the worldwide since 2013, as a member of esports organization Alliance despite appearing at six of the seven Internationals. It was led by Dota 2 veteran "KuroKy" Kuro Salehi Takhasomi from Germany with members "MATUMBAMAN" Lasse Urpalainen from Finland, "Miracle-" Amer Al-Barkawi from Jordan, "MinD_ContRoL" Ivan Borislavov Ivanov from Bulgaria and "GH" Maroun Merhej from Lebanon.
