N0tail on best crowd: "Ever? Would still be Manila. The best part was that they were cheering for every game" Interview2023-05-30 18:45:00
OG co-founder Johan "N0tail" Sundstein recalled the best crowd experience in his professional Dota 2 career. He most enjoyed the audience at The Manila Major 2016. He also fondly remembers The Kiev Major 2017, with the crowd occasionally cheering for them. He shared it on a stream of Janne "Gorgc" Stefanovski.
Ever? Ever, would still be Manila. Cause they were all so hyped. Just imagine someone who is just happy to be there, that was kinda vibe that was at the arena. It was a massive 360 type of thing, all the way around, and everyone was so energetic, the stadium was so energetic. And the best part was that they were cheering for every game, and the spectators were also there for every game.
But there's been a lot of good crowds for sure. Kiev was nice in a way. They definitely cheered more for Virtus.pro when we played in the finals, but they also cheered for us when we played other teams.
OG won both of the mentioned events and two more Majors made by Valve in that period. The team established a record that would never be broken unless Valve reestablishes the old competitive structure in Dota 2.
