Congratulations to OG for their Manila Major Championship. They had an impressive run through the Upper Bracket, taking down Natus Vincere, MVP Phoenix and Newbee. Team Liquid defeated five different teams in the Lower Bracket as they climbed their way back up to face OG in the Grand Finals. OG secured the victory by defeating Team Liquid 3-1, earning them an impressive second Major Championship title.
With The Manila Major behind us, teams set their sights on The International taking place this August. The Open Qualifiers will be kicking off June 21st, with the Regional Qualifiers right afterwards on June 25th.
In preparation for The International, a balance focused patch will be released today. In the 6.88 update you will find various minor balance tweaks geared towards ironing out some rough edges as we head into ESL Frankfurt next weekend and The International Qualifiers the following week. Head over to the patch notes page to read up on the changes in the 6.88 gameplay update.
