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

GESC: Indonesia
Quarterfinals
17 March 2018
1 hour 18 minutes
Natus Vincere
vs
Fnatic

The most even match to see in a long time between Fnatic and Na'Vi.

Both teams collide in Game 1 of the GESC: Indonesia Quarterfinals. It's the fight for Roshan that is at the center of this game at all times. Both teams are constantly so close in experience, gold and kills you really can't tell who - if anyone - ever has the upper hand. Each fight is could be the end, but it's a long time before these teams break their stalemate.
A wonderfully tense game until the very end!

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.

EPICENTER Major 2019
Lower Bracket Round 1
25 June 2019
51 minutes
Evil Geniuses
vs
OG

OG and EG play an amazing game of Dota in a BO1 elimination game at Epicenter Major 2019.
OG, playing with Sockshka in place of NoTail, draft Slark for Ana despite not being a meta pick.
The game has very even push and pull between the two teams and the game comes down to the last 10 minutes; the two teams are looking to engage around the third roshan, and while each side is looking for a favorable engagement, EG is forced to defend the split push from Cebs Furion.
The way that OG use rosh to force EG into taking a bad fight is brilliant.

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.
