Dota 2 The International 6: Main Event Day #4 Underlord “PIT LORD” revealed

By Jeremy Say Day 4, and no one could have predicted the top 8 that we got after a week of competitive play – especially the top 4 for TI6. The top four teams stand a chance to win that massive grand prize of nearly 9 million USD and have already automatically secured more money than Na`vi did in the first International with 1.4 million USD. Today we saw underdogs Digital Chaos SUNSfans their way up the lower bracket. We can’t help but cheer them on into the finals as they certainly do deserve it after such skillful drafts...

Dota 2 The International 6: Main Event Day #3

By Jeremy Say We are halfway through the main event with half of the teams eliminated so far. Already Day 3 of the main event, and two more teams are eliminated from the tournament, closing down on the sure-to-be tight finals. We must say GGWP to Alliance and Newbee for games well fought and congratulate Wings Gaming and Evil Geniuses (EG) for securing a top 3 finish. Not only did two of the most entertaining teams to watch, MVP Phoenix and Wings, clash in a spectacular brawl, but the  EHOME vs EG clash was arguably one of the best...

By Jeremy Say With the group stages over and the brackets made, day 1 will have the four teams from the lower bracket (LB) be the first 4 teams to be eliminated from TI6 in a best-of-one. Tensions are high in the lower bracket as 8 teams strategize and bide their time till after the upper bracket (UB) OG vs MVP Phoenix and Digital Chaos (DC) vs Wings Gaming games finish. The open ceremony started with all the teams being announced as they came out and lined up in front of our overlord Gabe Newell in flip-flops as he...

Dota 2 The International 6: Day #3 End of Group Stages.

By Jeremy Say Digital Chaos continues to take everyone by surprise. Misery in particular did a wonderful job as a drafter, painting a very large target on his back as he drafted and his team Sunsfans’ed their way through TI6. As every new tournament has a “mini” meta, TI6 is going to make tsunami-like waves in the community as people of all skill levels will be trying to bend it like Dendi. The amount of copycats is going to make playing DOTA unbearable again. But hey, at least we get to see aggressive games with hero picks such as...
