Before OG Esports and Team Spirit, there was Natus Vincere. The black and yellow team was hailed the first The International champions way back in 2011, comprised of European players Ivan “Artstyle” Antonov, Danil “Dendi” Ishutin, Oleksandr “XBOCT” Dashkevych, Clement “Puppey” Ivanov, and Dmitriy “LighTofHeaveN” Kupriyanov.
With TI season coming up, Valve, in partnership with streaming platform Netflix, gives fans yet another cinematic treat alongside the Dota anime series, Dragon’s Blood.
