Alliance vs. EG, Game 1 With Alliance's upper bracket hopes hanging in the balance, they provide fans with one of the most spectacular moments of the group stages, and perhaps one of the most entertaining turnarounds in Dota history. 66 minutes in, with EG looking to close out the game with one final hurrah, we witness the birth of a new meme courtesy of caster David 'LD' Gorman.

The Miracle- Worker The 9k MMR savant himself shows off his immense mechanical skill against the rising Filipino team, TNC. Cranking up the APM to near-StarCraft levels, OG's star player unleashes a devastating Invoker combo that utilizes nearly every spell in the hero's arsenal – twice.

Classic Zai, Classic Tobi EG's Ludwig 'Zai' Wahlberg saves the wonder boy Sumail from the hands of Wings Gaming with a spectacular IO Relocate. Caster Toby 'Tobiwan' Dawson's reaction to the play may have been the only thing better.

Feel the axe of Axe! Team Liquid's MinD_ContRoL sent fan favorites Na'Vi home with a spectacular performance on his offlane Axe in their do or die lower bracket game. Dunk after dunk crushed the spirits of Dendi, General and Artstyle, who couldn't withstand the onslaught. Despite their rocky start in the group stages, the win over Na'Vi gave Liquid some breathing room as they advanced to the Best of 3 rounds.

We, the Underdogs TNC, the pride of the Philippines, completed a 2-0 upset against Chinese powerhouse LGD in the second day of the groups – showing everyone that they are indeed a legitimate threat in the tournament. In this game 1 highlight, a short-lived throne race ensued after a game that could only be described as 'insane.'

TNC's win over LGD sent ripples throughout the tournament standings at large, relegating LGD to the lower bracket to face the turbulent Team Secret in a best of 1, do or die match.
