DOTA News: Tundra Esports capture title at The International 2022

Tundra Esports swept Team Secret in the grand final on Sunday to win The International 2022 in Singapore.

The London-based team earned nearly $8.5 million for capturing the prestigious Dota 2 championship and Aegis of Champions trophy.

Team Secret took home $2.45 million for second place, followed by Team Liquid ($1.7 million) and Team Aster ($1.13 million).

The Tundra Esports lineup featured Oliver “skiter” Lepko of Slovakia, Leon “Nine” Kirilin of Germany, Neta “33” Shapira of Israel, Martin “Saksa” Sazdov of North Macedonia and American captain Jingjun “Sneyking” Wu.

In the best-of-five grand final, Tundra Esports opened with back-to-back 40-minute wins on red and clinched the title with a 45-minute victory on green.

“It doesn’t feel real,” Saksa said. “I’m still trying to understand what happened in my mind, I can’t even believe it.”

“I want to thank everyone for coming here, supporting us and watching the Grand Final,” Sneyking said. “We wouldn’t be here without you guys. Shoutout to everyone who has supported us along the way!”

Earlier Sunday, Team Secret advanced to the final showdown with a 2-1 defeat of Team Liquid in the lower-bracket final. Secret sandwiched 28- and 38-minute wins on green around Liquid’s 40-minute win on red.
