Result: Evil Geniuses becomes first US team to win Dota 2 Championships

Evil Geniuses defeat CDEC Gaming in the Grand Final of the International Dota 2 Championships to become the first US team to win the competition.

Evil Geniuses have become the first US team to win the International Dota 2 Championships after defeating Chinese outfit CDEC Gaming in the Grand Final.

The home favourites beat their opponents 3-1 in the best-of-five final to take home the top prize of $6.6m (£4.2m).


All five team members - Fear, PPD, Aui, Sumail, and Universe - are now millionaires, while runners-up CDEC bagged $2.8m (£1.8m) between them.

Evil Geniuses endured a tough final day, having to defeat LGD Gaming in the Lower Bracket - beating them 2-0 - to book the meeting with CDEC in the final.

This year's prize pool exceeded $18 million (£11.5m), the largest pot in the history of eSport.
