At this morning’s Dota 2 International world championships, Newbee won the gold, and a winner’s purse of more than $5 million.

Chinese team Newbee fought back from a 7-8 record in single-match play earlier this month to win five consecutive sets, securing their place in the winners bracket for the final. Fellow Chinese team ViCi Gaming sat at the top of the single-match stage with a 12-3 record, though they lost their match against Newbee last Friday afternoon. As a result, they had to fight through the entirety of the main event brackets, beating US team Evil Geniuses Sunday night.

The Grand Final started this morning with a commanding win by ViCi as they gave Newbee a rare shellacking. But Newbee turned the tables on ViCi entirely, routing themin three straight games to become International Dota 2 champions.

This year marks the first time in the International’s four year history that its grand finals were composed of two Chinese teams. The runner-up received a second-place prize of almost $1.5 million.
