The recent conclusion of Dota 2’s The International 10 (TI10) has many fans and spectators in a recent uproar over its results. Many watching and analyzing the event had Chinese team PSG.LGD pegged as the tournament favorites, citing their first place finish at this year’s AniMajor, as well as top three results at events like ESL One Fall 2021 and the OGA Dota PIT Invitational. However, PSG.LGD’s chances at winning TI10 were undermined by an unlikely rabble of Russian rookies whose organization had previously only made a grand total of around $600,000 in their six-year history as a professional Dota 2 organization.

Now, it seems like Team Spirit not only has the attention of the Dota 2 community but of Russia’s government as well, as Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated the team in an official letter that was released today from the Kremlin for their TI10 win.
