2014 marked the first year of Dota 2 being part of ESL One, and Valve’s MOBA title was an instant success. The competition managed to draw a roaring crowd into the 2006 Football World Cup stadium in Frankfurt in the summer and filled up the famous Madison Square Garden Theater in New York later in the year. The fans got to see world-class Dota 2 players battle it out on the big stage, with us catching some of the best moments on camera.
