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

By   /   3 years ago


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).

3rd Place – LGD – 150.000$
4th Place – Team DK – 80.000$
5th & 6th Place – Zenith and EHome – 35.000$

Congratulations to all the teams for providing some awesome games of Dota, the huge crowd for being so loud and for pushing the teams to their limit and to Valve, Gabe Newell and IceFrog for organizing this amazing event and for creating one of the best games of all time!
