Dota 2’s Aegis trophy returned to Eastern Europe for the first time since the first tournament in 2011. Team Spirit won the 2021 International Invitational and crowned the world champion. Leading 2-0 early in the 5 best finals, including a brutal fourth defeat with a 2-2 record, Team Spirit led the team to win the championship in the final game.
