The International or TI is to DOTA, what the Grand Final is to AFL. Or the Super Bowl for NFL. The best DoTA 2 teams battle it out for glory and to win a large prize pool. Last year the winners of TI 7, Team Liquid, took home 10.5 million (US) to split between 5 players, support staff and sponsors. If you want a run-down of DOTA 2 click here for my review.
Starting off the games will be best of 1, then move onto best of 3 then 5 for the finals. For a breakdown of the scores click here.
Below is the day 1 standings of the main event.
