vs
Alliance

One of the biggest throws in a long time. A back and forth slugfest between a farmed Spectre and a farmed Huskar, with some incredible Rubick play from Insania. This game could go either way down to the last 30 seconds.

LGD Gaming
vs
Team DK

Burning vs Sylar at its best - PL vs AM. Truly deserving of the epic tag.

A good indication of an overpowered hero is when he receives a special nickname by the community (mostly used by those on the receiving end of the pain). This game was played during a time where Phantom Lancer was mostly referred to as "Cancer Lancer", since his split-push potential was fantastic and he was quite hard to control.
DK try to utilize this newly buffed hero and LGD counter with their own Anti Mage pick for Burning who's famous for wrecking havoc with AM. Cue an amazing game with the constant question: Whose carry is going to be the last one standing?

Dota 2 Asia Championships 2018
Lower Stage Finals

LGD Gaming
vs
Virtus.pro

Everything is on the line. This is the deciding match in the lower bracket final at the Dota Asia Championship 2018. Local favourites LGD need to reach the final in order to qualify for TI8 and to stand a chance of giving China its first major winner. They face the consensus best team in the world, Virtus Pro, who are going for their third straight major win. LGD pick fast-paced lineup built around Maybe's Leshrac whilst Virtus Pro go for a more balanced draft with a Ramzes Terrorblade. This game features a fast start, several changes of momentum and a sublime play which sets up a dramatic victory and sends TobiWan into a high-pitched frenzy.

Fantastically close game including a support Silencer and a beautiful wombo combo. Impossible to tell who wins until the end.

The Kiev Major 2017
Quarter-finals
29 April 2017
54 minutes
Evil Geniuses
vs
SG e-sports

The Kiev Major was wonderful for the matches but what stood out the most is definitely the success of SG e-sports, the first South American team that fought their way into a major competition. This is their deciding third game against a sweating Evil Geniuses.

Up until this tournament most pro teams were were formed in North America, Europe and South East Asia, with South America albeit high player numbers being considered sub-par to the established elite. SG e-sports managed to turn this sentiment around with their incredible performance. Beating, against all odds, another major pro team in the previous round and showing the resilience, teamwork and dedication of world class.
The most exciting and disputed match of the Kiev Major and one of the best matches of 2017, with incredible plays from both teams. A match that will stay forever in our hearts.

CDEC Gaming

The 6 Million Dollar Echo Slam Game.

The first International finale that could come close to beating the fantastic TI3 finale in popularity. EG has the US and European fanbase behind them while CDEC gather Chinese and SEA fans. It's a fulminant clash and both teams give their very best to earn the title of best Dota 2 team. A fantastic back and forth, ending with a bang!

Highly recommended watch if you haven't seen it already! And if you have... just watch it again! It's worth it!
