The International 2017 Champions for Dota 2 Are Team Liquid

Share this:

Professional gamers keep on making bank! At The International 7 Dota 2 tournament, Team Liquid has claimed victory over the $24 million prize pool and will collect the team’s share of $10.8m!

Coming through the loser’s bracket, Team Liquid managed to sweep (3-0) Team Newbee, and is also the first team to win after losing in the first round of the winner’s bracket. You can watch a clip of the finals match win in the Twitch embed below.

Who’d have thought one-time mod Dota (Defense of the Ancients) would be this big, no? I knew I should have stuck around to playing Dota! Mind, I’d doubt I’d stand a chance against any random pubstomper, let alone pro gamers, but one can dream. 

You can also watch the entire finals match in the video below, though it’s nine hours long, so better make sure to bring snacks, drinks and maybe a pillow.

Congrats, Team Liquid! See you again in The International 2018!
