Dota 2 TI6 News: Main Event Results and Highlights (Day 5)

Today, we’ll find out the Grand Finalist from the Upper Bracket and see the conclusion of rounds 4 & 5 of the Lower Bracket. TI6 hype!

And then there were five.

Yesterday, teams TNC, Liquid, and Ehome were beat out by DC and Liquid. This leaves teams EG, Wings, DC, MVP, and Fnatic within reach of the Aegis.

C'mon... everyone's doing it. It's a TI tradition!

C’mon… everyone’s doing it. It’s a TI tradition!

DC’s first matchup against TNC was nothing short of heart rending. I started out cheering for TNC. They had a really tight first game. But at the end of the series, I couldn’t help but be swayed to DC’s side.

Something about good DotA just makes me want to jump bandwagons, I guess.

DC’s second game against Ehome was a lesson in Void dominance. I hadn’t realized Ehome had such difficulty keeping Void in check, and I agree completely with the panelists that banning this hero outright (along with, maybe, Timber) would have greatly increased their odds.

Hindsight’s a rough mistress with so much money on the line.

We saw a case of buyer’s remorse in Liquid’s second game against Fnatic. Pipe and Black King Bar were probably the two biggest oversights that led to an incredible turnaround by Fnatic. In the hilarious words of an anonymous Redditor…

Gold medals for days.

Gold medals for days.
