Dota 2 International winners crowned
$1,000,000 will do just fine
The International, a worldwide Dota 2 tournament sponsored by developer Valve, took place this weekend, with the prestigious tournament finally producing a winner.
Chinese team iG beat defending champions Na’Vi to win the final, crowning iG the winners of the Dota 2 International 2012.
iG claimed a grand prize of $1,000,000 (R8,4 million) after winning out 3-1 against the tough Ukranian competition of Na’Vi.
As runners-up, Na’Vi grabbed a pretty decent second prize of $250,000 (R2,1 million).
Third place went to another Chinese team, LGD, who got $150,000 (R1,26 million).
The championship trophy was presented by none-other than Valve’s Gabe Newell.
Na’Vi had actually beaten iG on Day 2 of the tournament, although the Ukranian-based team couldn’t find their momentum again in the finals.
Congratulations go out to Chen Yao (Zhou), Luo Feichi (Ferrari 430), Jian Cen (YYF), Wong Hock Chuan (ChuaN) and Zeng Hongda (Faith) of iG.
Spend your money wisely, or not.
