If you would have been forced to make a bet today after the first round, you would have laid your money on ViCi Gaming. They dominated the first game. After, people were wondering if Newbee even would be able to squeak out a single victory.
Then Newbee did what they did all tournament.
They didn’t listen to the noise. The team that finished a lowly 7-8 in the group stage did what they do best – play great Dota. They came roaring back and won three straight. The final game wasn’t just a win, it was a domination. This over ViCi Gaming, a team that was dominate throughout the entire tournament against every team but one… Newbee.
