And one of the games really leading the way is Dota.
Dota is sort of a combination of football (or soccer for the Americans)
and Chess.
This is probably how I would try to explain Dota
to someone who's not familiar with it.
At least, that's what I did to my parents.
Dota is a game of momentum.
You as 5 players
try and battle against the other 5 players for momentum.
Every single player controls one unit.
And the main objective of the game is to destroy the final enemy building
which is called the "Ancient."
Everything else that happens in the meantime
is your amazing filler of a game.
You could play 100 heroes
in conjunction with 99 other heroes.
It's just nonstop possibilities
and it's so much fun.
And you know, it's like the same map every single time
but it literally never gets boring.
I would say Dota is a way of life.
When the prizes started coming
I was like, well we have tournaments
so obviously some people are going to come and say,
"This is a great game. Let's play it. Like, let's put money in it."
And it started progressing each year.
Those at the top level,
they just do like lots of calculations in their head.
Something like "A Beautiful Mind"
where you see like all kinds of things.
And using all this information
make your next move.
I see it in a lot of ways similar to basketball.
Just like a 5 on 5 game
where you kind of have to work together
and utilize each other's strengths and synergizing everything together.
The teamwork, and the trust, and the sacrifice
those are all true for every single team sport.
Dota is a game that unites everybody.
It doesn't matter what country you're from or race you are.
It's kind of like a bond that is shared
and when you're part of this tight-knit group of people.
It's like having a second family.
That's something you never let go.
Everyone's searching for something.
It gives you the ability to become someone else.
A someone who is powerful.
Who can take down 5 opponents.
Express their creativity.
Break the rules without actually getting arrested.
All of these reasons are in there somewhere.
The player himself might not even know.
He might not even understand it himself.
But it's there.
We were super hyped.
Everyone was surprised we were doing so good.
Even we couldn't believe it.
Online Kingdom dominating right now.
Alright the draft is under way.
EHOME, they will select up their heroes.
Scythe will start selecting theirs.
Looking now at both the teams,
it looks like EHOME they're fairly relaxed
while Scythe, you know they're eager.
They're all gathering around hyhy to pick.
If you have a losing draft, you will lose the game.
This is what I think of Dota.
So it's really a lot on drafting.
Drafting is where two captains will select what they want to play with.
What heroes are selected and what heroes are taken out.
You can select five heroes out of a pool of over a hundred.
And can also remove four of those heroes.
So four heroes you think your opponent will want to use,
you can remove.
Before any game, any match,
we will decide our bans and picks
according to which team we are fighting.
Usually we would come up with a very impromptu strategy
to try and fight their strat (strategy).
You really have to spend a lot of time thinking of the draft.
The draft actually decides a lot of the game itself.
EHOME. They're a team with so much experience.
They already know the way they want to roll this one out.
The only thing that's really going to make it or break it for them
is if they can get their execution right.
In that particular match-up
we felt that we needed something that could instill the fear in them.
And Tiny looks to be the last pickup here from Scythe.
A bit of an interesting pickup there by Scythe.
It's going to start to change around their lanes completely now.
With Tiny, it is good as a surprise strategy.
If another team doesn't realize where he fits into the whole lineup,
then you can really throw the opposition off balance.
He's moving away, but no, hyhy,
he'll just turn around and just pops the Lina.
I want to point out right now that EHOME,
they are not noobs (new to the game).
This is just Scythe playing an amazing game.
When you have such a huge audience and
you know that everyone is at home watching the game...
they have their hopes pinned on you and
I feel that...
there's so much at stake.
And they should be able to clean it up right now.
Tiny, he's gonna toss, he's gonna launch and he definitely gets the kill.
We got 357 getting nailed out there.
Nature's Prophet going to get the last hit in as well.
It's the entire team down for EHOME.
This is GG.
This is now a double-rax, at least.
And EHOME, they're going to disconnect.
We have our first Winner's Bracket Finalist.
Scythe will advance.
EHOME will drop down into the Loser's Bracket,
and Scythe will now finish up this game.
He can get a little bit too silly in games.
He will try new and different things.
He will overextend in team fights
because he believes he can get the kill.
And his impatience can go too far
and he might lose the game for us.
Oh, Nature's Prophet, he's going to go in.
This should be the First Blood.
They got the Sprout on Sansheng as well.
There's probably going to be a double.
Dendi's ulti, it hits!
Dendi, Dendi, no, no.
He's not...he cannot be.
This is Dendi through and through.
Starts with the Hex, goes to Cold Snap, he locks him in place!
Weaver really close to death!
Manages to Timelapse back out again.
Dendi will TP (teleport) back to safety.
So GG being called by iG.
Na'Vi, they will take the game.
Our Winners Bracket Finalists are going to be Na'Vi versus Scythe.
Going into the match, we were all thinking,
MUFC didn't do so well earlier, but...
If we lost that game, we wouldn't win anything so...
it was a high risk game.
36 minutes in, almost a 7,000 gold advantage in favor of MUFC
Toward the end of the game, we made a couple of mistakes
that put two heroes on the sideline for us.
And they had all five still up and decided that they were going to go for our Throne (Ancient).
They're probably just going to push for the base.
They're going GG!
They want to go for the GG!
No Fortification anymore!
We were really close to losing our Throne.
It's below 20 percent HP
And Online Kingdom, they are so close to getting eliminated from this tournament!
We just needed to do something.
Alright, I'm going to go on them! I'm going to initiate on them!
So I ran in first and then they all went on me
instead of focusing on the Throne, which is good.
Again by Silvercross.
Fear, he's trying to retreat.
He turns into a pig.
How the hell is he still alive?!!
Go, go, go! Go, go!
They push MUFC back!
We made this huge comeback where we killed all of their heroes.
You know, started pushing.
Silvercross is down!
Morphling! He's out of this!
The Top Rax (barracks) will go!
There is no way now that MUFC can come back!
But it will be Online Kingdom eliminating MUFC!
Our whole team just went crazy.
Fear leading Online Kingdom to do the impossible.
I've never seen anything like that.
And stay tuned.
We'll be back here with more exciting gameplay coming up.
Welcome to the Winners Bracket Final
where Scythe goes up against Na'Vi.
The winner gets a slot in the Grand Final.
The crowds were all cheering for them.
And their draft was very scary.
We were, like, caught off by surprise.
But, we were like, we've gotta win this, man.
We've gotta win this and show them who's boss.
Scythe has managed to take all the best players from Singapore
and put them in their lineup.
One million!
Na'Vi, they look cool calm and collected.
They know exactly what they gotta do.
It all comes down to gameplay right now
and I gotta say like, Na'Vi's lineup, it is not unbeatable.
Now they're gonna look for the initiation and possible kill.
hy is gonna get caught.
Now bottom lane. Held in place.
Sven stunned. Sven will go down.
LighTofHeaveN, he helped out but Ancient Apparition gets the last hit.
Na'Vi are dominating this final.
Now Na'Vi, they're gonna take the chance here.
They're gonna go in for the GG.
And GG is the call from hy first.
Na'Vi are already off their computers.
They're not even sticking around.
They've got the GG.
Na'Vi are into the Grand Finals and will play for the one million dollars.
And whoever wins this match will be facing up against EHOME,
but whoever will lose it, is going to be eliminated already.
Like, EHOME, they're looking really strong right now.
We had the stronger late-game heroes, the better team fight.
Just all we had to do was just control the pushes.
Now, Online Kingdom, they're split!
The stun on Santa! The splash as well.
They're gonna claim a Windrunner.
Will they? Yes they do!
It's 2-0 for Online Kingdom.
Moscow 5, not the start they wanted.
But Online Kingdom having an amazing start...
We were so close to winning until some few mistakes that occurred in the late game.
They might go right now.
There's four heroes standing right next to each other.
The timing is wrong!
There's communication problems because we're an international team.
So I think full-nationality teams have an advantage over most teams.
Almost there! Big try!
Fear's in trouble though.
He's shackled and Lacoste is in.
He casts his ulti as well.
And it just fell apart from there.
They just slowly beat us down.
Eventually they just broke our base and took every single one of our raxes (barracks).
This is really hurting Online Kingdom.
They've lost three.
Enigma pops.
The team is wiped for Online Kingdom.
The base will be taken and Moscow 5 will now play EHOME and advance in the tournament.
Now, Online Kingdom, they are out. So much promise...
It didn't happen in the end for Fear and the rest of Online Kingdom,
and it will be Moscow 5 that will advance...
As for the Chinese teams I hope and know that they're capable of coming out of the Losers Bracket.
The top three teams are likely to be Na'Vi, Scythe, and a Chinese team...
which I personally hope will be EHOME.
Emotionally, I would hope that EHOME would win.
Turning him into a pig!
They need to get this kill.
The stun! The Weaver Wave! It's a little piglet!
And it's dead! Slardar!
820, he's almost dead!
Burrow Strike! Epicenter!
357! It's a double-kill by the Weaver!
EHOME, they'll lose FCB as well.
Moscow 5, casualties of war.
Holy Hell.
In China, this game is a professional career.
We are stressed because we have to win.
If we don't win or we lose to foreign teams,
Chinese fans will have doubt in us.
Now Lion though is going to find him. Hexes him up.
Finger's already started. There's the stun.
Maelk in a lot of trouble.
Really caught out of position.
AA ulti will fly in but hits on nothing.
Mania with the SK ultimate...
The situation is China against the world.
If we win the championship, it is what we are supposed to do.
I tell them, if you are coming here, you are here for the first place.
I will tell them every day, we must accomplish this. We must achieve this.
Our tradition is
anything other than the champion trophy we will not bring home.
They will go ahead and trash it at the airport.
Now PLT. Support Teleporting in. FCB gets the first stun.
Misery over-commits on the top lane.
I can feel they really want to beat us, the foreign teams.
PLT, he's had enough of this.
FCB! What a time for a Frog!
Misery will pop!
But when they watch us play, they feel...
that there is no way to beat us.
And we have a rematch.
EHOME versus Scythe.
EHOME facing up against the team that forced them into the lower bracket.
The psychological pressure is immense, especially upon the drafter.
Because he is the one who is in the end responsible for the team's picks.
No, no, no, no, no.
No, no. Don't say no!
No, no. Trust me. No.
Wait, wait, wait.
Tell me this. You really want it?
I really think...
It's the Antimage and SF (Shadow Fiend).
That's what I think.
Shadow Fiend? Alrighty then. It's hyhy as SF.
Everyone knows how to counter a Shadow Fiend.
It's a very bold pickup here by Scythe.
The fact, if Scythe wins the early game, they're going to gain so much momentum,
but if they don't, then EHOME will basically roll themselves into the Grand Final.
hyhy, BKB (Black King Bar) is going to wear off pretty soon,
Venomancer, great strike!
hy's dead!
Stay in the trees now!
And he wants xy-, he catches up to him.
And he brings him down.
Hey! I told you to stay in the trees!
Why'd you come out?
Stay in the trees! I told you.
What an ulti! He Cogs!
Chawy, he wants to leap, but there is just no Mana!
I already told you.
I told you. Do you understand?
It's ok. Take it easy.
If he can pop off an ulti like that, he doesn't have to reveal himself to his opponent.
He can really just initiate.
Oh, there he goes! hyhy doesn't manage to pop off an ultimate.
There are already three gone.
Make that four.
It's a double-kill for the Anti-mage.
And they're headed for the tower right now.
There is a GG—Good Game called by hyhy.
Scythe have had enough now.
EHOME will advance.
The Chinese hopes will stay alive
as they will go up against Na'Vi with a one game disadvantage...
We are now at the final day
of The International Dota 2 Championships.
It is Na'Vi.
They have a one game advantage.
Sitting very, very sweetly in the Grand Final.
Who will get a shot at the one million dollars?
Na'Vi was running the same strategy the whole time
and no one seemed to be able to counter it.
Na'Vi loves pushing from minute 10
and trying to end the game at minute 15.
Those strategies are very sensitive
because if you fail even once
it can become a very difficult game for you.
EHOME has been known for how well they defend their base
So if there was a team that could stop Na'Vi's push it would be EHOME.
And let's get this game underway.
The players will start to pick up their heroes
with one million dollars at stake.
Na'Vi need to win two.
EHOME need to win three.
Running a very, very old school strategy with three core heroes.
EHOME managed to survive Na'Vi's onslaught early.
It's all on Dendi.
PLT TP's himself in.
Dendi on the retreat back out to the tower.
Will he get himself away?
X!! Yes, there it is.
Last hit, 357, the Venomancer brings down Dendi in the middle.
Every time you see Dendi perform he's always playing very well
and he usually doesn't lose his lanes.
So, Dendi, his impatience is that
Chinese teams, they are patient.
They look out for the fact that you might cross a line
and they will take you and kill you and win the game through those situations.
Trouble in the mid lane again. There's already the Gush.
357, PLT, everyone is right on top of Dendi.
He's in the wrong place.
And the way Na'Vi played, they really gambled basically.
Dendi's really been ganked, just shut down.
And not a single kill to his name as well.
Now Na'Vi going to assault inside the base
Watch Artstyle. Tier 3 tower. VS Swap!
Artstyle's in the wrong place!
Doom there as well! BKB's both popping off!
Ravage will pop from LighTofHeaveN unable to affect EHOME.
Pudge will go down.
They want to be initiated on.
Na'Vi, they need to fall back.
They take your little upsets
and just win the game through those mistakes.
"GG" from Na'Vi!
EHOME are celebrating right now inside the booth. Na'Vi cannot believe it!
They've dominated this tournament up till now, and EHOME takes the first match so convincingly.
That was the first loss of Na'Vi during the whole tournament.
They went undefeated until the Grand Final.
We're going to have a 15-minute break and be right back here soon.
Na'Vi, they need to compose themselves.
EHOME, well, they just need to be awesome...
What a play by them!
So we have currently EHOME and Na'Vi playing in the Grand Finals.
Na'Vi just lost one game versus EHOME
and it's 1-1.
So both teams have to win two matches in order to win the one million dollars.
Because our picks looked completely different, we were like passive and stuff.
People thought we lost the first game,
we're going to lose the second game.
We were maybe a little bit demoralized.
We really needed to change to a different pick.
We were missing something.
We picked Enigma just
to have a strong teamfight
a five versus five combat.
It was, like, the last hero left
and I never played it before.
Then, we're, like, "Dendi, you go!"
And he's, like, "Guys, I've never played it!"
"But, I can do it!"
So we took the risk of taking him
and risking maybe playing him badly.
So it looks like down on that bottom lane, Dendi will be taking the Enigma.
It is going to be a very, very rough lane...
Na'Vi lost the game.
And they're playing something now that they're not as confident with.
EHOME figured out Na'Vi. Figured out how to play against it.
And I'm going to stick to my word and I'm going to say EHOME will win it.
It was incredibly ballsy from Dendi to do that
on the verge of winning the million dollars for your team.
That's very, very stupid. That's suicidal.
Dendi really now caught out.
He's in trouble.
Rockets to fly in.
FCB long way in on the tower, lands the stun.
Tinker just lasers him to death.
It will cost FCB his life.
Then we made some little mistakes.
We played a really semi type of, like, "turtle" strategy.
Really passive. Really passive.
We don't play like that.
Puppey and Dendi just want to retreat back out.
820! What a Fissure!
PLT is there!
Echo Slam as well!
Beautiful play there by EHOME.
But I know if I die,
I die not for nothing.
X!! in the middle lane...
Force, Rocket, Laser.
It's enough!
Dendi goes down in the middle lane.
Sometimes it can be like, you dying
but your teammates picking up more.
EHOME, they still want to push out that mid...
They weren't ready for Dendi Enigma.
It was a patient Enigma.
That was the most patient Enigma in the world.
Puppey is here.
Dendi as well.
Going to look for the Hole.
Three are going to go down for EHOME
Currently, Na'Vi, they have the advantage now.
That really impresses me how he's able to make that transition.
You just have to have the balls, basically.
He was scared of losing.
That's why he was so patient and he did everything right.
Their strategy is kind of similar to how EHOME won.
Na'Vi defeated them "Late Game."
And I think this really shattered EHOME's confidence.
And "GG" is the call from EHOME.
Na'Vi, they take the game.
And they are only one win short of taking home one million dollars.
We hardly won the second game.
Chinese teams generally are feared for their "Late Game" potential.
So we hit the point now.
The gloves come off.
EHOME, they will master their knowledge, their experience, their calls
up against Na'Vi.
And Puck will be the last hero for Na'Vi.
The nimble hero there already.
Once again a lot of aggressive heroes for themselves.
Na'Vi LighTofHeaveN playing as the Beastmaster again
with Dendi playing as the Puck this time.
If Na'Vi wins this,
they win the whole tournament.
This Clash of the Titans right here
is something we will not want to miss.
X!! will come in closer.
They will be able to get that kill.
Doom now on Dendi.
Pulled in by X!! The entire EHOME team turns on him.
Lich will go down.
FCB is on the run.
XBOCT after the chase of him.
Might be enough. Needs some more damage.
Storm! X!! Long jump in.
Dendi Orbing up to the high ground.
FCB! Puts on the Rift.
Will he be able to get the kill? He's on the retreat.
Yes, it is. Dendi with the last right click.
EHOME now, they're gonna rotate themselves down.
Na'Vi already in the pit.
They're trying to bring down Roshan - all 5.
Dendi! He's gonna jump out!
He goes for the Dream Coil! He gets them!
He gets EHOME! Holds them in the middle lane.
Na'Vi already on their way out of the pit.
They're coming in to help out Dendi.
Then we just went in and demolished them.
Now they're on top of the Tier 3 tower.
They're going to bring it down. Yes, it does go down.
EHOME, they're trying desperately to defend
but Na'Vi, the onslaught will continue.
The mid tower's already being pushed.
The Tier 4 tower is going to go down.
And running in right now is the rest of Na'Vi.
They are running forward to one million dollars.
And they will get it!
The "GG" is the call from EHOME.
Na'Vi have just won one million dollars.
EHOME do take home $250,000 in second place.
But Na'Vi are the champions!
There's moments of E Sports that are landmark,
and this is one of them. In Cologne.
And Na'Vi, the winners.
You guys have just made history.
