Dota 2 The International 11 tournament has found this year’s champion, newcomer Tundra Esports. Tundra Esports defeated Team Secret 3-0 in the finals to claim the title of the best Dota 2 team in the world, pocketing USD 8,486,704 (over VND 210 billion).
Tundra was nearly undefeated during the main period of the tournament, only managing one draw in 4 Bo2 games in the group stage. In recent years, The International winners have often been “dark horses,” but Tundra Esports makes the best case for getting the job done in impressive style.
After beating Team Secret 2-1 in the final of the first leg, many expected Tundra to continue to dominate in the final and they really did. In the first game, Tundra turned Leshrac over to Team Secret, who was a “closet” hero during Tundra’s tournament. Tundra definitely found a way to counter this hero and easily won the first game of the grand finals.
The same story played out in the second game. Secret once again picked Leshrac and fell back to Tundra. Although Secret got off to a better start in game two, the hero lineup of Visage, Arc Warden, and Chaos Knight helped keep the chaotic teamfights in Tundra’s favor, giving them a 2-0 lead.
In the third game, Secret tried to “hit him in the back” with Tundra taking Naga Siren and Leshrac, though he lost to the hero first and this likely cost Secret. . Tundra excelled in the deciding game, winning the final 3-0 and becoming the TI 11 champion.
