The lights are on
At the conclusion of Valve's annual Dota 2 International tournament, Newbee emerged victorious today to take away the lion's share of a $10.9 million prize pool in a best of five series, beating Vici Gaming in the Grand Finals. The winners will take away at least $5,028,308, with the second place finishers bringing home $1,475,699. This is the fourth International, and the first time it has taken place at KeyArena in Seattle.
The event was available for viewing on ESPN, Twitch.tv, on the Dota 2 website, and within the Dota 2 client itself where watchers could win prizes for witnessing power plays and game events. A new player stream was available for the first time to help.
Interested viewers will be able to watch the games and see highlights and recaps in the coming days.
