It's rare that esports teams go entirely undefeated in esports events, but that's exactly what Virtus.Pro have managed in the recent ESL One Birmingham Major tournament for Dota 2, emerging as champions after a weekend of competition in the British city.
They've had great success in the Dota Pro Circuit this season, which should give them a lot of confidence going into the biggest competition in the calendar - The International - which is going down in August. What should give them even more confidence is that they beat OpTic 3-0 in the grand final to establish their total dominance.
Big names like Team Liquid and Newbee disappointed in the competition, with the former eliminated from Group B after two losses against paiN, and the latter coming bottom of Group C after defeats against OpTic and LGD Forever Young.
You can see the top teams in action again in August for The International, but who do you think can take victory there?
