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

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

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.

Though it looked bleak, enough time was bought and Liquid broke the high ground at 29 minutes after a massive misplay from Damien "kpii" Chok, who leaped into battle and burned his ultimate on an unnoticed Linken's Sphere (an item can block single-target spells like Legion Commander's Duel). 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. They will face the victor of Lower Bracket Finals; the victor of LFY vs Liquid. Newbee will be taking home US$3.9mil (RM16.7mil).

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. Before this, there has never been a 3-0 grand final. After yesterday I think Liquid are on a huge upswing, if they can take game one I'm confidant they can with this series. Liquid entered the Losers' Bracket of the tournament early, resulting in a staggering number of elimination matches on the way to the Grand Finals.

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.

The final boss of TI7 is waiting for Liquid. LGD.Forever Young have flexed their superhero-sized gaming muscles this year and lost only one match, to the tough-as-steel Chinese team and TI4 champions Newbee. This approach carried over into all three games as Liquid worked to control all factors of the game towards the final objective: taking down the Ancient. 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. Liquid secured a foothold, and despite the reviving Aegis expiring literally moments prior to a death, the Western team continued to slowly siege the Newbee base, inching ever-closer to an historic win.
