With the last day of The International upon us, three teams remain in contention to win it all and take home a check for $9,091,184 in this $$20,661,782 tournament.
Digital Chaos and Evil Geniuses will square off in the lower bracket finals for their chance at playing Wings Gaming in the championship match.
Digital Chaos is perhaps the Cinderella story of the tournament. While they are a good team, fans and pundits alike didn’t consider them a contender that could knock off the likes of EHOME or Fnatic, sweeping both 2-0 in the lower bracket.
Evil Geniuses, the obvious crowd favorite and winner of last year’s International 5, was a team that appeared to be in flux by making numerous roster changes including Saahil "UNiVeRsE" Arora who left EG in March only to return, leave again and return again. However despite this and other changes ,this squad has once again shown just how good they truly are in terms of not just playing the meta, but creating it.
Waiting quietly for the winner of that lower bracket match is Wing Gaming, whose late game team fighting ability has propelled them into the finals. Aggressive and tough, this Chinese squad plays with absolutely zero fear and seem to be so intuitive when it comes to knowing when and where to initiate team fights. Whoever meets this team in the finals will have to adjust to this very aggressive play.
Any of of these three teams teams can take home The International 6 championship and you can watch it all play out live on Twitch.
