Invictus Gaming took fourth in the final standings to claim $2.401-million in the ongoing The International 10 DOTA 2 Championships.
The group of Shanghai-based pro gamers, led by Jin Zhiyi and Zhou Yi, had one of their best performances since placing third in the i-League 2021 Season 2 last month.
IG placed ahead of Virtus.pro and Vici Gaming, which shared fifth and sixth spots, respectively and got $1,400,600 apiece.
Invictus missed a chance to make it to the upper bracket finals of the main event when it took a 0-2 setback to Team Secret.
Team Secret is in an ongoing battle for third place with Team Spirit, with the winner heading into a championship showdown with PSG.LGD.
Meanwhile, Tiny the Stone Giant stood in the way of T1’s final stand in the tournament.
In their match, main player Yang “poyoyo” Shaohan’s Tiny showed the way for Vici Gaming with nine kills, a death, and seven assists as they held off T1 in Game 3 for a 2-1 victory.
This allowed Vici to move up from the lower bracket’s third-round clash on Saturday evening at the National Arena in Bucharest Romania.
Only Karl Baldovino (Batrider) managed to hold his ground on behalf of T1, before he left the session with five kills, two assists and six deaths.
Carlo “Kuku” Palad (Magnus) tried to provide leadership, but he had trouble looking for the the right timing with his Reverse Polarity ability.
