    It’s time for The International 7! Let’s sit back, tune in the official stream and talk DOTA 2.

    Hey Insiders,

    The pressure’s on as the 16 final teams enrolled in TI7 battle to take the Aegis home. This year features the biggest prize pool ever for TI, with an astonishing 23 million dollars — the stakes are high! After winning the first 2 majors this season, OG is entering the competition with a solid mindset. Team Liquid, with the support of Team Razer, have also showcased solid performance this year and we’re excited to see how they’ll do in their group stage match against Evil Geniuses.

    Want to follow the action? We’ve gathered the essentials for you:

    Join the discussion and tell us what you expect from TI7 — Who’s your favorite team? Who do you think will win The International? Whether it’s to chat meta or talk results, you’re in the right place.

    I'm rooting for my Boys in Blue, Evil Geniuses!

    While I don't think Cr1t is a capain at the level of PPD I think they have a solid chance of winning TI this year.

    LFY and TNC are both a lot of fun to watch though and I hope they go far.

    Disappointed in Cloud 9's performance so far. They just seem very disjointed.

    Me neither. The pros are pros because they pay attention to every little detail and not just the obvious ones. :)

    My bets on Team Liquid! They deserve this win for sure!

    TNC and LFY look like tough opponents. They have been racking other teams!!

    LoL, TI7, I remembered about 3 years ago, when I loved Dota, and my dreams were just to play in one of the TIs, but then Overwatch was released....
    But I'd say NaVi (they won't win, but they will win another TI someday......)

    I'm a Team Liquid supporter all the way. :) :)

    Though, I'd be extremely happy if I could get to TI and get a photo with the team. Seriously, Razer staff guys get me in on Saturday and I'll be there. *laughs* :) I'll arrive at the airport roughly 2:30pm on the 10th, I could totally make it to Saturday's finals events, I even already have a plan to get there. LOL :big_grin_::big_grin_::big_grin_:
    (Our family stuff is on Sunday the 13th)

    Rough series for Liquid. I thought game one they were just outdrafted, 2 was a nailbiter, and 3 was the earthshaker show. What a performance from xxs.

    Gotta agree with you on this one. Severely outplayed on game 3. That xxs ES play was insane. Multiple times he could pick a hero off with his combo and immediately it'll be a 4v5. I hope they bounce back from this.

    On a lighter note, check out this escape from the man himself. 2EZ4RTZ

    Love the Legion/ Necro combo.

    Great tournament so far.

    Did you see the last game against Team Secret yesterday? That Troll pick supported by 4 healers was a very nice combo. TBH, I didn't even think that would be such a great push down the lanes. :smile_:

    I did! Loved that unorthodox draft. At the end it seemed a little shaky but they still managed to pull it off.
    Yep almost guaranteed kills for Legion, i should try them this weekend haha. If anyone missed the match and wants to catch the highlights, here you go.

    So guys, who do you think will win TI? After yesterday performance, I think that many believe that LFY have the biggest change.
  18. While I of course have a certain bias for Team Liquid, LFY is looking mighty fine, even when they're fighting uphill battles based on drafts.

    Would the pattern of non-China, China, non-China, China etc be broken this year?

    To be honest (given what we saw in the tournament until now), that pattern you mentioned would be great because what I fear is even bigger domination of Chinese teams. I mean, it could easily happen that we see lower bracket finals between 2 Chinese teams, while in upper bracket already awaits another one... And thus the pattern Chinese, Chinese, Chinese.

    P.S. I have nothing against Chinese teams; I even rooted for some teams, like good old DK. But since I live in Europe, I am much closer to western teams :wink_:
