OG is the double Dota 2 World Champions

The Dota esports keeps its champion. OG broke all trends and could, after the success of last year, earn the second The International Championship title.

The team marched through the upper bracket of the playoffs after a dominant group phase, and after a final win against Team Liquid, they secured the double championship title as well as the prize money of about $15,600,000.

OG raises the bar for future teams by several levels. Not only did OG win the second Aegis of Champions in the history of The International for the first time, but they also shared success with the exact same lineup for two consecutive years. OG’s triumph over Team Liquid brings the organization’s prize money to over $33,000,000, while each of the five current players has earned well over $5,000,000 over their careers.

Where there is a winner, there is also a loser – or in the case of The International 2019, 17 losers. OG prevailed in the Grand Final against Team Liquid, who finished the event on a solid yet disappointing second place. The lineup around Captain ( Germany ) Kuro ‘KuroKy’ Salehi Takhasomi secured a total of just under $4,450,000, while the third-placed PSG.LGD players were eliminated from the tournament with approximately $3,000,000.

While OG dominantly marched through the Upper Bracket, Team Liquid went a similar way in the Lower Bracket. The two lineups remained completely undefeated before each team had to give a map to PSG.LGD. In the European final of The International 2019, it was all about.

Team Liquid took the lead after a relatively tough first match before the competition showed absolute top form. OG equalled in the second match after only half an hour before two wins in under 25 minutes made it clear that the TI8 Championship lineup is still the best team in the world.
