October 17, 2021 concluded grand final of one of the most popular Dota 2 tournaments - The International 10. On that day, for the title of world champion fought a team from Russia Team Spirit and from China PSG.LGD. Luck favored the Russian gamers - they won with a score of 3:2. How exactly was the struggle in the grand final?
Team Spirit and PSG.LGD are teams that have about the same strength. That is why the last day of The International 10 was quite intense and unpredictable for the participants of the tournament and for the spectators as well.
At the end of the long battles that took place on the first two Dota 2 maps, Team Spirit took the lead. However, in the next round the tempo of the game increased significantly, and the Chinese athletes also managed to win two consecutive victories. In the fourth match that lasted only 25 minutes, PSG.LGD led from the very beginning and finished the round with a score of 2:2.
In this situation, The International 10 tournament was the third time in history that a fifth battle had to be fought in the grand final. This battle was not as dynamic as the previous ones. From the very beginning, PSG.LGD decided to go on an aggressive offensive, but very quickly made various mistakes on the map. As a result, the initiative passed into the hands of Russia's Team Spirit.
In general, this round lasted 37 minutes and the representatives from Russia took the lead with a score of 3:2 - their reward was not only the champion's title, but also more than $18.2 million. It should be noted that the last team from the CIS that won at The International was Natus Vincere - exactly 10 years ago it took the leading position. Spectators betting on Dota 2, who bet on the Russian team and earned on the victory of Team Spirit, are especially happy about the victory.
