The International: Dota 2 Winners by Country

No country has dominated The International quite like China, who have gotten big-time victories from Invictus Gaming, Newbee, and Wings Gaming. The world will be watching to see if Chinese super teams like PSG.LGD and Vici Gaming can pull out a big win on home soil in 2019.

Only one team can win The International each year, but there’s still plenty of glory in coming in second or third in such a talented field. Evil Geniuses lead all teams with four top-three finishes, but Natus Vincere and PSG.LGD aren’t far behind with three top-three finishes of their own.
