Team Spirit won The International 2021

Russian team Team Spirit sensationally became the champions of The International 10 in Bucharest. They won over $18 million as prize money.

The squad from CIS did not qualify for the even through the DPC system but managed to pass the qualifiers. The start of the event was not the best for the Dragons as they were 0:4 and then 2:6 after four bo2 series at the group stage. However eight-map winning streak allowed them to proceed to the upper bracket.

They took one map from Invictus Gaming but lost the next two and dropped to the lower bracket. And there, their miracle run started. They had no trouble with Fnatic and then decimated running two-times TI champions OG.

The CIS derby in the TI play-off was something people had not seen for a long time. As it turned, Virtus.pro were the most challenging opposition for the Dragons until the grand final, but they managed to take an important win. In the rematch versus IG, Team Spirit showed no mercy and closed the series 2:0.

And on the last day, some magic happened. First, Team Spirit beat Team Secret, and the decisive game was absolutely chanceless for the Puppey's side. And then they took the title in the five-map thriller versus PSG.LGD. The best Chinese team lost the second grand final in just three years.
