You read it right! Team Invictus Gaming have received their official invitation to the biggest DOTA 2 tournament to date featuring a first prize of $1,000,000! Chuan Wong shared the news over Twitter and Facebook earlier today.
Invictus Gaming is the champion of The International 2 where they fought and beat various teams from all over the globe including big Chinese teams and favorites such as LGD and DK as well as the champion of the first International, the Ukranian team Natus Vincere who finished second that time. With only a few bumps along the way since their win at The International 2, iG still continues to improve and show the world that they are still a strong Chinese powerhouse team that must not and never be underestimated. Â In fact, they recently finished first in their group in the G-1 League qualifiers and in the LAN finals, they will face other Asian and EU/NA qualified teams. With the mixed teams in the G-1 League grand finals, could this give us a glimpse of what to expect in The International 3?
The official invites sent from Valve were first received the Russian caster V1lat and Chinese caster LaoDang and then followed by two more Chinese casters Haitao and Melody. Â Although iGâ€™s invite is expected because of their championship win at TI2, with this first official team invite being sent out and received, the atmosphere for the biggest DOTA 2 tournament is more significantly setting in!
