Na'Vi wins first Dota 2 tournament

Pockets $1 million.

Ukraine professional eSports team Na'Vi has been crowned the champion of the first Dota 2 tournament, pocketing a whopping $1 million.

That's $1 million spread out across five players.

The International was held at German game show Gamescom inside Valve's huge show floor booth.

The Portal maker plans another International next year. The location and date will be announced at a later date.

Na'Vi beat Chinese team EHOME 3-1 in a best of five match. Don't feel too bad for them: they took home $250,000 for their second place finish.

Replays are available to watch online at the Dota 2 website.

Eurogamer's Dota 2 preview from Gamescom is live now.
