Team Alliance

Team Alliance gets the first place and more than 1.4 million dollars in prize money.

Although Team Alliance won the first match in the best of 5 series, it looked quite bad after the first 3 games. As team Na’Vi won both Game 2 and Game 3, Team Alliance were in arrears with 1:2 – another defeat would mean the end of the dream. Although The Alliance was a high favourite of the analysts for betting odds, they withstood the pressure and managed to win the two remaining matches. The final was definitely pure tension.
