Right after The Frankfurt Major, the international mix achieved yet another hallmark-- Dream League Season 4, with prize pool of $150,000. InternationalOG advanced through the LAN part of the tournament without any difficulties; they started from final bracket because of outstanding performance during the "on-line" part, and the team tore down their opponents one by one. First, International4 Clovers and Lepricon were defeated 2-0. After that, Russian FederationTeam Empire, a team from CIS, was knocked out twice-- first in winners' bracket, and then in Grand-Final.

Cloud9 disbands Dota 2 team


This was the team roster at the past Frankfurt Major (source)


It was clear after United StatesRitsu was kicked from United StatesCloud9 that the Dota 2 roster was going to have some big changes. Unfortunately for fans of the team, one of the most difficult decisions was made. Failing to create a stable American player-roster after The International 2015, the organization made an obvious decision to disband the team. The performance of the team at The Frankfurt Major was also an important factor: last place is not exactly a reason to be proud. Now, one can only wonder if United StatesCloud9 will try to create another Dota 2 team, or choose to leave the place vacant.
