Evil Geniuses is just two steps away from winning The International 2015 – it would be a memorable moment in Dota 2 history, because EG would then overtake Natus Vincere as the most successful Dota team ever.
Evil Geniuses will face LGD Gaming in the consolation finals of The International 2015 today. They are the last foreign hope against the chinese domination of this tournament – and they may achieve something extraordinary.
Natus Vincere lead the World Ranking for 25 months
If EG wins the tournament they will overtake Natus Vincere as the most successful Dota 2 team of all time. At the moment, Na’Vi leads the alltime World Ranking with 77,015 points, but EG is on their heels with currently 73,815 points. Since the winner of The International will receive 6,400 points, this would be enough to overtake Na’Vi.
Just to make clearer what that means: Natus Vincere was the dominating team in Dota 2 for years. They led the World Ranking from its start in August 2012 until July 2014 (and once again in October). This means 24 months in a row!
EG and Na’Vi are the dominating teams in Dota 2 history
Evil Geniuses on the other hand account for nine months in the leading position since November 2014, but nowadays there are many more tournaments and opportunities to gather points than some years ago when Na’Vi was the dominating team.
Nevertheless, there is a huge gap behind these two powerhouses: The next best team in the alltime-ranking is Vici Gaming with about 58,000 points. It will take more than a year for the first chinese team to close this gap.
