Following an epic best-of-five clash between two of Chinas biggest teams, Valve today crowned a new champion of Dota 2, its free-to-play multiplayer game that has morphed into a sporting spectacle capable of filling NBA-sized arenas. Team Newbee triumphed over their compatriots Vici Gaming in four games and earn a grand prize of $5,028,308, to be split between the five players and their support team of coaches and managers. The winners of the Aegis of Champions, Team Newbee, were set up in a hurry back in February, aiming to be ready specifically for this tournament while compiling a group of talented players from other big Chinese teams.
