That said, Evil Geniuses and OG remain the closest predators of Newbee. Both enjoined success this month: EG won the Dota Pit League while OG came in second. In a month of three major tournaments, this was the only one that both attended.

Alongside DC, TnC Gaming also rose to new heights, winning the World Electronic Sports Games 2016. The tournament with 1.5 million dollar prize money was the second biggest non-Valve-tournament in Dota 2 of all time. Due to the qualification mode it was missing a lot of the top-tier-teams in the world. TNC gained eleven ranks and is #22 in the World Ranking now, just two ranks shy of their record.
Cloud 9 was the runner-up of the tourney though and it sparked a great comeback for the former world-class-team. With the signing of the ex- The Imperial-lineup, C9 was the biggest winner of this month. The american-based team jumped 268 ranks in the Dota 2 World Ranking, securing the 50th rank for them.
On their heels is another newfound team, Team Faceless. With their fourth rank at Dota Pit the four asians and Black^ rise to rank 56. They barely missed the Starladder Main Event though, so they won’t take part in Februarys most important competition – their ascend is slowed.
