The 11th DOTA 2 International Invitational Tournament (TI 11) has entered the knockout round. In a match between the Chinese team RNG and the European team Entity, RNG sent only one teammate to the stage?
Don’t get me wrong, that’s because four of RNG ’s teammates were diagnosed with Covid-19 before the game and had to participate in isolation. It was too imposing to go to the battlefield alone. The Malaysian player decided to put on team uniforms and masks for the four teddy bears. Bring it to the stage, place the original seats of the teammates, and play together, symbolizing the teammates in isolation, accompanying them and fighting together.
The scene was really heartbreaking. Fortunately, xNova was accompanied by a teddy bear, and the audience did not forget to shout his name to cheer him up. They held on for 107 minutes, but unfortunately RNG lost to Entity in the end. Although they withdrew from the competition in 13th to 16th place, they did not feel frustrated, at least they also won a consolation prize of more than 250,000 US dollars.
xNova posted on Twitter to thank the fans for their encouragement and comfort, which made him feel better on stage. This feeling will always be remembered in my heart. A fan left a message saying that this game is no small matter, it will be a page in Dota history, it should be proud of each of us, and this will not be the last time fans will call your names. We look forward to RNG’s next championship!
