Valve continues the TI tradition as they award the defending champions, Tundra Esports, with their TI11 Championship Rings. Take a look at the ring here!

The International 2022 (TI11) champions, Tundra Esports, have received their Championship Rings ahead of TI12. The "ring ceremony" took place last week according to the post, which would be right before The International 2023 (TI12) began.

In plenty of sports, rings are usually given to champions as an individual trophy and it is also a tradition that takes place in Dota 2. TI champions will receive special rings a year after lifting the Aegis, typically ahead of the next year's TI. Every year, the rings bear a different design as they usually resemble the winning team's logo and the theme of then International.
