Before the tournament, V Gaming were far away from the title contenders. Team Empire, Team Unique and HellRaisers were all higher rated teams going into this tournament than V Gaming. But in the end, V Gaming surprised the whole CIS Dota 2 scene with their good form, and with taking this tournament, they are surely one of the CIS teams to watch for in the future. It will be interesting to see how they will enter new Dota 2 season and on which level they can fight tier 1 CIS and EU squads.
