The first day of the DOTA 2 International 9 is over and NAVI, Keen Gaming, Fnatic and Alliance have been eliminated. It was sad to see Alliance go, they went above and beyond everyone’s expectations. All teams took home $500,000 USD.
The epic back and forth between TNC Predator and Vici Gaming with hour-long games was probably the highlight for me. Absolutely epic gameplay and nail-biting fights. It was mesmerising to watch that level of player skill and fortitude. Well done to everyone who played! Below are the standings and videos of the day from NoobfromUA (Youtube). There’s also today’s event details as well.
