The top 10 moments of ESL One Frankfurt 2015

This year’s ESL One Frankfurt blessed us with some of the most thrilling Dota 2 matches in recent history along with an atmosphere that raised the bar yet again. Although it was hard, here we’ve gathered a handful of the most incredible plays of the tournament so you can look back and relive some of the event’s top moments!

10) No bringing down IG.Burning!

Every so now and then, someone will try to dethrone Burning - and ever so often it ends like this!

9) wipes Alliance

How do you win a 5v5 team fight against a Magnus and an Enigma? Well, definitely have their own opinion on the topic.

8) Cloud9 vs. Invictus Gaming Rosh pit fight

FATA- does some major work in this drawn-out teamfight, and how about those familiars?!

7) Next-level courier bait by

It may be debatable as to whether or not this play was intentional, but you can’t deny its effectiveness!

6) The amazing cosplays

To summarize, the cosplays at the venue this year were nothing short of spectacular! We applaud everyone who came out and showed off their intricate and mesmerizing handiwork!

5) Evil Geniuses’ game-ending ultra kill against Fnatic

That’s one way to end a match.

4) Fnatic.JoHnNy’s Eidolon deny

Talk about presence of mind! We can’t even begin to describe how difficult it is to pull off a self-deny like this while playing for such massive stakes.

3) The roaring crowd

None of this would have been possible without the incredible Dota 2 fans at the Commerzbank Arena. You guys simply went all out this year - kudos!

2) Cloud9’s incredible base defense

Invictus Gaming was knocking on heaven’s door all game but the clouds simply would not part. This is what you call a base defense!

1) Secret.KuroKy’s Techies game

Did that just happen? To say that we had a blast watching KuroKy’s Techies get snowballed around the map may be a bit of an understatement. A true one-of-a-kind performance!

ESL One Frankfurt 2015 was a truly unique experience, and thanks to all your support we managed to break even more records this year!
