Dota 2 The International 4 – NewBee in the Grand Finals
On the day 1 of the main event, NewBee has become the big boss and the team to beat in the Grand Finals.
Before the games though, Valve kicked things off with an opening ceremony by none other than the man himself, Gabe Newell. After that and before the first round of games, the team’s introductions were shown:

NewBee hasn’t lost since their tiebreaker games and they’ve managed to beat the team with the most wins in the Round Robin, Vici Gaming by 2-1, and in one of these wins they’ve beaten VG in just 14 minutes!
The 2nd fastest victory in the whole tournament.
