Dota 2 The International 6: Main Event Day #1

 

 

Four teams go home as day 1 of the event comes to a close

With the group stages over and the brackets made, day 1 will have the four teams from the lower bracket (LB) be the first 4 teams to be eliminated from TI6 in a best-of-one. Tensions are high in the lower bracket as 8 teams strategize and bide their time till after the upper bracket (UB) OG vs MVP Phoenix and Digital Chaos (DC) vs Wings Gaming games finish.

The opening ceremony started with all the teams being announced as they came out and lined up in front of our overlord Gabe Newell(picture above) in flip-flops as he gave his opening speech, which was nice and short. We then transitioned into an amazing performance by the lovely Lindsey Stirling in full Windranger ensemble, armed with her bow and violin. As the performance came to a close to a cheering crowd, we got a snippet of the AR-esque production value that will prove that TI6 and eSports has come a long way in five years. Who cares about the Rio Olympics really, when you have TI6 - the Dota 2 Olympics and its USD20 million prize pool.

OG vs MVP Phoenix
