The grand finals day of The Summit 6 was held in Los Angeles, with only three teams battling for the grand prize. Russian-based team Virtus.pro won the series with a clean sweep. The Summit 6 Dota 2 tournament began in the 16th of November. Teams who joined the MOBA game tournament included well-known teams like Wings Gaming, Digital Chaos, Evil Geniuses, OG, Virtus.pro, Team Faceless, EHOME and Team NP, according to Yahoo News. The games were set in best-of-three format and followed a double elimination rule.
Two Dota 2 teams from the top tier level started off a rematch to identify who will face Virtus.pro in the finals, according to ESPN. The two teams were OG and Evil Geniuses. During their earlier match, OG defeated Evil Geniuses, with a score of 2-0. Their rematch, however, was a bit more of a close match, with Evil Geniuses gaining the upper hand in the first game, which ended in just 29 minutes. OG then made a huge comeback and beat the other team for the two following games, making the OG winner of the series, with the score of 2-1 and moves forth to face Virtus.pro in a best of 5 games for the grand finals.
The first game was won by Virtus.pro, with the highlight of the game being Pavel "9pasha" Khvastunov's offlane Dark Seer, supported by team mate Ilya "Lil" Ilyuk, using Slardar as champion. The second game shook OG, who used a more push-oriented formation, with Johan "notail" Sundstein as Drow Ranger and team mate Anathan "ana" Pham on Mirana.
The approach OG used was then proved to be not enough to topple down Virtus.pro, as the latter team annihilated all the five players of the former during a clash. Roman "RAMZES666" Kushnarev's Lifestealer and Vladimir "No[o]ne" Minenko's Juggernaut made the biggest damage to the OG team, which led to a score of 2-0, favoring Vitrus.pro. The third game also became the final game, with Vitrus.pro sweeping the other team in a game which lasted 24 minutes and a kill line of 44-13.
