Team Liquid Wins $24 Million International Dota 2 Tournament

Team Liquid Makes Esports history at The International 2017

Now, however, one of eSports' most iconic franchises has claimed Dota 2's biggest prize, as Team Liquid emerged as the winning side of The International 7, taking home over $10 million Dollars in prize money for its victory.

The victor of the 2017 International Dota 2 Championships, or TI7, is European Union team Liquid, who in addition to the Aegis of Champions will also take home a $10.8 million prize.

LGD move on to the Lower Bracket Finals to face off against Team Liquid.

Even though TL defeated Empire, Resolut1ion had an fantastic run for a team I considered to already be one of the weakest going into the event. 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. And the result of that match was 2-1 in a best of 3 rounds.

It has been a record-setting day for Liquid in many respects, as the team also became the first squad to ever win a Grand Finals at The International in a sweep. 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.

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

The dominating snowball style of Team Liquid shone in each game of the Grand Finals.

In the final game, a series of incredibly coordinated slam-downs by Liquid were the highlights that might have won the European squad the grand prize.

Liquid's victory over Newbee prevented what would have been the first team to win two worldwide tournaments, after their victory at TI4. 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.
