Yesterday evening the Chinese Dota 2 team iG (Invictus Gaming) defeated last year’s champion the Ukrainian team Na’vi (Natus Vincere) in the Dota 2 International and won a huge sum of $1,000,000 with a second place prize of another $250,000 going to Na’vi.
The international this year was a blast for anyone who watched the games, awesome (and funny, will get to that later) casters for English, Russian and Chinese viewers mixed with a great execution of the event and of course the awesomness of the game being played at the highest level.
To include a few moment from the event below:

Awesome Statman Bruno is the funniest (and most handsome) on the casting panel.
This is a real eSports crowd, watch in 1080p.
