Despite winning The International in 2017, Team Liquid had never won a Major tournament - until this weekend. The late stages of the China Dota2 Supermajor landed on Saturday and Sunday, they managed to take down top teams to claim first place and bagged themselves $555,000.

Team Liquid narrowly defeated Virtus.pro 3-2 in the grand finals, but their path to that stage in the tournament wasn't simple: facing off against the likes of NewbeeTeam Secret, and PSG.LGD. This was the final Major in the current season of the Dota Pro Circuit, no doubt giving the victors some confidence on the lead up to this year's The International.
