The Dota Pro Circuit, the Singapore Major, The WePlay Animajor and The International; these five teams were the most dominant this year.
The WePlay AniMajor has been entered into the top 5 Hall of Fame after it attracted a massive viewership on its final day. We break down the numbers, from most popular team to most watched series.
They say its the year of Chinese Dota 2. And it's not entirely wrong. After Invictus Gaming secured the Singapore Major, PSG.LGD has now 3-0'ed Evil Geniuses at the WePlay Animajor. A commanding performance by the Xiao8-led team.
Evil Geniuses went back to Arteezy's Terrorblade as they reverse swept Vici Gaming. EG is now in the top three at the WePlay Animajor and will face the loser of the match between PSG.LGD and T1 esports.
T1 guaranteed themselves top 3 with a brilliant victory over Quincy Crew, another playoff direct invite. Even a Broodmother and carry Nature's Prophet couldn't stop them at the AniMajor.
PSG.LGD has been one of the most dominant teams in the Animajor. Xiao8's drafting and the players' skill ensured the Chinese team is now one step away from the Grand Finals. Nigma will have to make a lower bracket run starting with their next match against Evil Geniuses.
