The main stage of The International 2019 has started! We were expecting a great welcoming ceremony in China, not inferior to previous years, and the organizers did not disappoint us!
The Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra performed Dota 2 soundtrack and the stage had a dance number with a certain Chinese cultural flavour.
Immediately after that, there was a video with the Dota-scene veterans and a drum show, greeting the teams while they were entering the arena. Highlights: frantic support that PSG.LGD received; OG, who went out with the Aegis of Champions and brought it back to stage, and Gabe Newell's laconicism. Valve founder thanked Shanghai for the hospitality and asked if we could see the first back-to-back The International Champion.
"Welcome to The International!"
