Finals

50 minutes
Vici Gaming
vs
Team Secret

In the Finals of Captain's Draft 4.0 Team Secret is down 2-1 in a bo5 against Vici Gaming. With a strong line up on both sides it's all about getting the upper hand in ganks and teamfights. VG is up 20k gold at one point, but it wouldn't be Dota if this would be the end of it.
Great teamfights and a fantastic drive by both teams to gain absolute advantage guarantee a very enjoyable match!

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.

The longest game in pro Dota 2 history. Glorious and frustrating in equal measure. Some say EternalEnvy still has nightmares about it. HOHO! HAHA!

Fnatic
vs
mousesports

At the time this was one of the longest matches in pro Dota 2 history and the game engine had trouble handling any games that long.

The result is glitches and errors the longer the match progresses. It's a fun game to watch with good fights between these pretty even teams and a bonus of player chatter and commentator fun when the map goes crazy later on. Good game!

EHOME
vs
Moscow Five

The shortest game in pro Dota 2 history.

Need a really, really quick fix of Dota 2? Here you go. The draft is longer than the actual match.
It's also a great display of how a pro team is able to shut down another team of lesser skill effectively. It's a forced win through demotivating and leading the enemy team to believe there is no chance to recover.

Lower Bracket Finals

Digital Chaos
vs
Evil Geniuses

High stakes, crazy game.

The draft seems pretty straight forward, but what DC makes of it is unexpected to say the least. EG is under constant pressure from split pushes, psychologically brought low by constant harasses and kiting by their highly mobile enemy. With superior vision control, DC seems almost impossible to stop. Can the winner of the last International fight their way into the 2016 Grand Finals as well?

A fantastic game featuring a team EG that refuses to give up, great mind games by DC and an ending as tense as few others!

Farming Venomancer, a support Alchemist, hilarious rotations, two heroes dying to neutrals,... - probably the whackiest Grand Final match to this point.

One of the clowniest and funniest matches of all time with the superb commentary by Tobi and Synd.
