ImageThe final two invited teams to this year's edition of The International include the winners of the East and West qualifiers.

Following a five day event for two different regional online qualifier tournaments, FR mTw and CN TongFu Team have emerged as the final attendees to The International. With these victories, both teams will be provided free trips to Seattle, where they will join the fourteen teams personally invited by Gabe Newell to compete for the grand prize of one million USD. Valve has yet to formally acknowledge mTw and TongFu as the final two attendees on the Dota 2 website, however.

The East qualifier and the road TongFu had was virtually flawless; the Chinese lost only one round against TH MiTH.Trust in the second stage of the upper bracket, but won all their matches. In the final against CN World Elite , TongFu achieved a 3-0 victory, with only control maintained throughout the majority of their playing time. The road for mTw, however, was far less certain. After getting knocked out of the upper bracket in the first round against RU , the international roster had to overcome SE Infused Gaming , US Quantic Gaming , RU zNation and EU mousesports before facing off in the grand final against KZ . The Kazakhstani team had thus far appeared to have been the strongest competitors in the tournament and victory against them was far from certain. Nevertheless, mTw struck out in an aggressive manner and managed to clear through with a 2-1 victory.
