Team Liquid Wins the Dota 2 International Tournament, $10.7 Million Grand Prize

Chinese team LFY - which has a sole Malaysian player, "Ahfu" Tue Soon Chuan - came in third at the prestigious The International 2017 Dota 2, winning US$2.5mil (RM10.7mil). None other could do so with such persuasiveness and prowess as Team Liquid, the victor of this year's Championship.

Guam residents fear attack after North Korea statements
The Navy used the island as a coaling base and communications station until Japan seized the island on December 10, 1941. The U.S. military began rotating bombers - the B-2 stealth bomber as well as the B-1 and B-52 - to Andersen in 2004.

Liquid rode their lower bracket momentum into game one, which resulted in an early rout that went unchallenged for half an hour as the European Union team ran over Newbee, in large part thanks to roaming offlane play of Ivan Borislavov "MinD_ContRoL" Ivanov as Nature's Prophet. From there, they battled through the lower bracket with impressive wins over Team Secret, Team Empire (who upset and eliminated Evil Geniuses one game prior), Virtus Pro, before being faced against two Chinese powerhouses in LGD and LFY.

Team Liquid came 8th previous year, taking home the comparatively low $311,557 cash prize. And the result of that match was 2-1 in a best of 3 rounds.

Pep Guardiola has spent over £200m to bring in players including defenders Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker and goalkeeper Ederson . But the hosts were delivered a lesson in the Premier League's ruthlessness with 20 minutes to go as City finally went ahead.

In game three, Newbee went with a very push-heavy lineup that nearly overtook Liquid, but a few key teamfights tipped the scales toward Team Liquid until a GG called. For instance, about half an hour into the second game, the Alchemist played by Amer "Miracle-" Al-Barkawi began to ruthlessly slice into Newbee's base, taking an aggressively objective-focused approach to the situation.

The final boss of TI7 is waiting for Liquid. It took about two minutes and an Aegis, but on one hand for Newbee, the Alch was finally dead. The last time a Malaysian team won was in 2013 when Team Orange eSports came in third at The International 2013. Riding that momentum, Liquid took the next two games decisively, albeit in ways that called into question the team's ability to take on the formidable Newbee lineup.
