If you would have been forced to make a bet the day after the first round, you would have laid your money on ViCi Gaming. They dominated the first game. After, people were wondering if Newbee even would be able to squeak out a single victory.
Then Newbee did what they did all tournament.
They didn’t listen to the noise. The team that finished a lowly 7-8 in the group stage did what they do best – play great Dota.
They came roaring back and won three straight. The final game wasn’t just a win, it was a domination. This over ViCi Gaming, a team that was dominant throughout the entire tournament against every team but one… Newbee.
Today we crown a new Grand Champion and a new inscription for the Aegis.
