Team Liquid wins Dota 2 Championships, takes home $10.8 million

TI7 bracket stage Day 4 briefing

TI7 bracket stage Day 4 briefing

Newbee move on the Grand Finals.

LGD Gaming started the day by sweeping Invictus Gaming 2-0 with two games of less than 45 minutes to set up a lower bracket showdown with Team Liquid.

Both Newbee and Liquid delivered a strong performance at The International beginning in the group stages, securing their respective slots in the upper bracket of this week's Main Event.

The current edition of The International is seeing non-western teams - particularly China, taking the tournament by storm. Still, Newbee leaves with a second place prize of nearly $3.9 million. This proved a somewhat redemptive arc for the team, after a series of lower-than-expected results over the history of The International and an early exit past year.

Trump warns NKorea that USA is 'locked and loaded'
North Korea responded by saying it was considering a plan to attack Guam and dismissed Trump's warnings as a "load of nonsense". So far, however, America's allies have been slow to react to North Korea's aggressive nuclear ambitions.

Team Liquid came 8th past year, taking home the comparatively low $311,557 cash prize.

In one of the most intense and heart-racing best-of-three series at The International 7, Liquid edged out LGD Forever Young in the third game of their lower bracket match.

In Game 3, the pendulum swung back in Newbee's favor, with Moogy's Bloodseeker taking over the game, ravaging LFY and finishing with a 15/1/16 KDA.

A team once considered to be one of the best, North Americans Evil Geniuses have performed poorly in this year's global, not winning a single match: being beaten by both Newbee and Russian team Team Empire early in the tournament - both ending in a 2-0 loss.

How much the film will change from Snyder's original vision is unclear, but we do know Batman will have a giant ass plane. The executive producers are Jim Rowe, Wesley Coller, Curt Kanemoto, Chris Terrio and Ben Affleck .

Both teams played out of their minds, and few can say that either side threw any of the games. Ultimately, however, Newbee proved unable to course correct, and ultimately fell to Liquid in straight sets.

Liquid's victory over Newbee prevented what would have been the first team to win two worldwide tournaments, after their victory at TI4. Meanwhile, Liquid fans are likely ecstatic for team captain Kuro "KuroKy" Salehi Takhasomi, who has failed to place in the top six of the worldwide since 2013, as a member of esports organization Alliance despite appearing at six of the seven Internationals. The seventh annual Dota 2 event in Seattle was like the Super Bowl of esports, with a record prize pool of $24 million this year, compared to $20.7 million a year ago.

Team Liquid, hot off a 2-1 series against LGD Forever Young, returned once again to a Nature's Prophet for Ivan "MinD_ContRoL" Borislavov Ivanov in game 1. According to Valve, the TI7 Grand Final reached 4.7 million viewers across streaming platforms and within the Dota 2 client.
