The International as an overall event was very nice, but the grand finals was just... not. Both teams gg out after they lost the advantage with seemingly little will to fight to the bitter end, and Vici Gaming just tried the same strategy over and over, failing soundly every time.

One could say VG strategy was an all-or-nothing gamble, but it was a gamble which did not pay and the result were some poor matches. Vici either lacked the skill to draft a better strategy, or the grit to fight on an uphill match. Either way, given how fast they GG out I don't see me cheering for them ever again.

On my mind, I prefer to imagine those matches never happened.
