Team Liquid Wins The International 2017 Grand Finals For $10.8M

Team Liquid has sponsored champions in games such as Starcraft, League of Legends and more. Formerly, Liquid’s Dota team was American, but their European one took the crown in a more volatile and profitable environment.

The current roster had varying success throughout the pre-championship season. They performed well in the grand Russian event Epicenter but failed to do as well in the Dota 2 Asian Championships. Still, their victory was foreshadowed in their victory at DreamLeague Season 7’s Atlanta finals, where they took first over other international teams.

The most impressive—and game winning—was one final Juggernaut slash by Miracle-, superpowered by a Double Damage rune that helped to wipe out the entirety of Newbee.

Disney will be launching a new, stand-alone ESPN streaming service in 2018. This is wonderful news to those who have left cable behind but still yearn to watch sports. It is also big for ESPN, which has had a rough couple of years. The sports media empire lost 12 million subscribers since its peak in 2011, and the company fired a number of high-profile employees in 2017, including NBA reporters Marc Stein and Chad Ford. Former ESPN writer Bill Simmons claimed that the company was too slow to recognize the importance of digital infrastructure. 

The new ESPN service will offer “approximately 10,000 live regional, national, and international games and events a year, including Major League Baseball, National Hockey League, Major League Soccer, Grand Slam tennis, and college sports. Individual sport packages will also be available for purchase, including MLB.TVNHL.TV and MLS Live.”

They entered the tournament, their first event as a team, and no one thought that they would even get past the group stage. They ended up placing second in the entire tournament. In their next event, in Copenhagen, they came in first place. Now, that same group of six females, performing under the Team Dignitas banner, are taken very seriously. They operate in accordance with the tag CSGO WOMEN, and happen to be fully comprised of ladies, but they have zero interest in being compared to anything less than the esports industry as a whole.
