Reddit news: The International 2015
The International 2015 was the most discussed esports event on the Internet in August, Dota 2 section on Reddit was no exception. Read the best of Reddit news below!
User blocodents congratulates Evil Geniuses, which won Aegis of Champions, having defeated CDEC Gaming in the final. " Fear can now buy the dankest desk in existence". "Shoutout to CDEC Gaming for showing us some amazing dota. And ruining the top 6 prediction of all the compendium owners". We congratulate both team too, they've done fantastic work!
Many people were astonished, that deadmau5's performance began straight after the final: "what the F was the point of that performance? ' EG you won TI! congrats! Now here's a DJ Set." That was really strange as many people expected to hear some analysis of the final, a couple of interviews instead of music. Perhaps organizers, hosts and players were too exhausted to continue the show.
"BEST INTERNATIONAL EVER". No matter who wins, this tournament is better than all other tournaments. Before the event's end some users expressed their excitement about the tournament.
All Stars match
" Dendi is in the pudge costume.!" It's notable that this post emerged before the beginning of the match. Perhaps someone has extrasensory perception.
"This guy has been the face of Dota for such a long time. A lot of pros or casual players say that Dendi was their inspiration to play dota. And in the all star match he was sweating so much in that Pudge costume that I was worried for his health. But he had it on for the whole match. what a guy, honestly!" writes sepy007. The reaction of the audience, when they saw the real face of Pudge, was enormous. Dendi is adored by everyone. They shouted louder only during the final match.
"You should marry someone who looks at you the way Puppey looks to Dendi". The photo of the former teammates is so popular, that it has become a mem. The original was posted by Puppey on his official page.
"I knew bringing that danish flag was worth it!" As you know, 10 players were picked from the audience for All Stars match. This guy was extremely lucky!
Key Arena / hosts / Valve
You must've heard the crowd in Key Arena supporting the teams. "Your cheering is sounding awesome on stream," wrote socrates111. We can't help agreeing with him.
"The TI5 stage is the dota map and even shows special effects when ultimates are used" Wow!
"For everyone complaining about valve and just taking our money. I am sure they could have a great opportunity to put out mad amounts of commercials and in between sponsors. But they haven't. The content is all there and they are just talking about dota. I am sure this is a luxury of having a major tournament put on by a massive corp."
"The real ti5 MVP. REDEYE. What a performance throughout the tournament. So professional. Always keeping the show flowing smoothly. And he got such a genuine interest and love for the game and e-sport in general".
"WHAT?" Many viewers were surprised that a prominent basketball player Jeremy Lin visited Dota 2 tournament. However, he's a great fan of the game since DotA era, so no surprise.
A couple of kids were standing in the street watching Dota 2. "That's Arteezy and Zai" "True form". We'd say: "Dota 2 fans - the beginning"
Sometimes casters distract from the game: LD reads Reddit, while Tobi watches Counter-Strike: Global Offensive match. "Wrong game, Tobi!"
Natus Vincere got their taunt too. ArtStyle's very strange use of Shallow Grave will long be remembered by the fans.
The player of former champion Newbee Rabbit misbehavior was spotted: you need to learn how to take the defeat! Well, Nutz only laughed in reply.
One of the most remarkable TI 2015 moments. Was mana really worth 6 millions?
" Zai just deleted all his tweets and unfollowed everyone except RTZ...not a good sign."
This cosplayer didn't visit The International 2015, but it's worth mentioning! You'd rarely see so fantastic implementation of a digital item (this one is Arcana item for Terrorblade) in the real world. If you want to see the cosplayers of TI2015, look through this album.
