The Kiev Major 2017
Grand Finals

"What's our strategy, boys?" "Let's just trust in RNG and hope luck's on our side."

Kiev Major Grand Finals, the first time since TI3 that two teams go all the way to a game 5 in a Valve event.
It's OG trying to take their fourth Major win home against the fan favourite Virtus.Pro. Both teams try to get the upper hand. N0tail and Fly showing some amazing support work.
An unbelievable tense game which demanded incredible mental fortitude from both teams for the chance to take the 1 million dollar first place prize pool.

There are a lot of comebacks and rapier plays in Dota, but no other was this ballsy.

Prepare for the long awaited return of DAC 2017 form Xxs, who now plays mid lane, Aggresif more than living up to his name and Boboka picking an obscure hero and proceeding to make it look utterly game breaking in multiple instances... aka, being Boboka. FTD come out swinging in game 2, and take IG to their limit, and then past it.
Action packed late game until the crazy ending.

RNG clashes with IG in a decisive game 3 of their first 2022 DPC clash. An insane
Separate 20k and 30k gold swings in the final 8 minutes of play, which are quite possibly some the most insane 8 minutes a game of Dota has ever seen, reaching it's peak with a game saving literal 1v5 Rampage. Emo and Somnus play out of their minds throughout and the winner is unclear until the very final moment. The game was incredible throughout, but the ending catapults it into the stratosphere.

The underdogs take on the favourites of the tournament in an intense game with breath-taking end game fights and great split-pushing. G going ham on his Storm Spirit and VP using their trademark Drow+Visage combo. Overall a great game to watch by some of the best players in the world.

It's a pretty even game between these world class teams with none of them making any fatal mistakes. Great ganks early on, multiple builds that haven't been seen in a while and an ending that is... interesting to say the least.

Push/Heal-strat and hilarious missuse of blade mail.

This game is played during a time where pro Dota 2 often consisted of long games with Tinker slowly split-pushing the enemy to bits. The way he's countered in this game is quite effective, punishing the enemy team for relying solely on the tactic. It's one of the great, funny games that are often overlooked.

Lie back and enjoy the show.

ODPixel: "This game's not over. This game is not over."
Luminous: "Eehh... It's over. It's over. Haha. I mean - it's over."
Narrator: It wasn't over...

Team Kinguin are back 0-1 in a bo3 and need to get this game. Mineski is sporting a few good heroes, but weirdly enough also an Outworld Devourer in safe lane, who rushes a meteor hammer out of all items and kind of seems lost half the time.
This is one of those really unique games that simply stands out of the crowd by being completely different from what you'd expect.

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.
