Russian-Ukrainian esports DOTA 2 Team Spirit has been crowned champions of the tenth Dota 2 world championships, The International 2021, by overcoming Chinese top picks PSG.LGD 3–2 in a marvelous best of 5 finals. The dark horses will be bringing home USD 18.2 million of the complete USD 40 million prize pool, which is the biggest to date of any esports competition, and addresses two years of local area financing by showing solidarity and love for the Dota 2 player base round.
Facebook said late Monday that the organization believes a “faulty configuration” change caused a far and wide blackout that kept going about six hours.
Facebook’s VP of engineering and infrastructure, Santosh Janardhan, said in a blog entry:
“Our engineering teams have learned that configuration changes on the backbone routers that coordinate network traffic between our data centers caused issues that interrupted this communication. This disruption to network traffic had a cascading effect on the way our data centers communicate, bringing our services to a halt.”
It was a difficult journey for Team Spirit containing, from Position 1 to 5, Yatoro, TORONTOTOKYO, Collapse, Mira, and group chief Miposhka — having set forth in Group B during the gathering stages, then, at that point, losing 2–1 to Invictus Gaming in the Upper Bracket Round 1, and afterward making the sluggish move back in the Lower Brackets, prominently taking out reigning champs OG, and second most noteworthy winning streakers at TI10, Team Secret.
Solidarity got going to the finals against PSG.LGD with a reasonable system: ban Ame’s Monkey King and split up their Tiny-Lycan combo — and with that, Team Spirit took the initial two games without any difficulty with Yatoro’s Naga Siren and Collapse’s Magnus.
Then, at that point, at long last in Game 5, Team Spirit let through PSG.LGD’s undefeated Tiny-Lycan combo in return for the Undying boycott, and the most persuading style, dominated the game with tenacious strain from Yatoro’s Terrorblade, TORONTOTOKYO’s Ember Spirit, Mira’s Bane, Miposhka’s Winter Wyvern, and most outstandingly Collapse’s Magnus, which is presently seemingly the world’s ideal.
This year, TI10 was held in Bucharest, Romania. Its underlying area in Stockholm made it hard for global players to achieve a Swedish visa when the nation would not perceive esports as an official sport.
