Dota 2 The International 2 Million Dollar Grand Prize Goes To Invictus Gaming

By   /   Sep 3, 2012


First of all, Congratulations to Invictus Gaming for a huge and successful tournament and for providing a lot of great games against the world’s top teams.

They walk away from Seattle with one million dollars in their pockets after 3 days of group stage games (where they ended with 13 wins and only a single loss) and 3 more days of playoff games (getting knocked down to the lower bracket by Na’Vi, and then fighting all the way through it to get the revenge on last year’s world champions in the Grand Finals).
