The International 2016
Lower Bracket Finals
13 August 2016
48 minutes
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!

Natus Vincere
vs
Kaipi

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.

Captains Draft 4.0
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!

Also featuring: tanky Rubick, Echo Slam on creeps and great stats-information by SirActionSlacks

The best match of the entire tournament, an insane comeback with interesting strategies. Just an example of everything that makes Dota great.

The Chongqing Major 2019
EU Qualifiers, Loser's Finals
30 November 2018
43 minutes
Team Liquid
vs
Alliance

A milestone game for Kuroky, in which he gains the title of only player to play every hero in a professional game, but it is Alliance that makes this game great. What initially looks like a clown draft turns out to be a massive wombo combo draft. This game goes back and forth, hinging on every single teamfight right up until the end.

Alliance with an extremely powerful push line-up and early advantage. Fnatic's only hope is Meepo...

Draft shenanigans, back and forth teamfights, and skin-of-your-teeth escapes. This game has it all.

Elimination Mode 2.0
Grand Finals
24 November 2016
1 hour 26 minutes
OG
vs
Evil Geniuses

Game 5 of the Grand Finals of Elimination Mode 2.0.
With only two heroes left untouched during the entirety of the series, all of the pocket picks come out as the players scrape the absolute bottom of the barrel for strategy. N0tail is the ultimate Syllarat, while Arteezy plays a core Visage in a game that lasts almost 90 minutes. Nonstop action and incredible teamfights as EG struggle to keep a 12 slotted lone druid's bear from ripping their entire base to pieces in mere seconds. The entire Bo5 is worth watching, but this game takes the cake.

The Manila Major 2016
Upper Bracket Round 1

Team Liquid
vs
MVP Phoenix

Hyperaggressive pure balls-to-the-wall amazing game.

Incredible hold and impeccable teamfight precision. Brilliance from both teams. Clinical Dota at its utter finest - this is exactly how you play when you're two racks down. Coolest and calmest comeback of the year.

The whole game a glorified rosh fight. Neither team ever settles in any lane, 5 man ancients at lvl 1, 8 minute long rosh fight.

Royal Never Give Up
vs
The Final Tribe

Royal Never Give Up, after giving up the lead early on, stayed true to their name, defending their throne with everything they got. This game has game changing RPs and incredible Calls and a Storm zipping around trying to find a Tinker before the Tinker finds him.
