The tournament, which also propelled caster Aaron "Ayesee" Chambers into Dota 2 stardom, saw the participation of all the top names in Dota 2, but there could only be one champion to take home the winner takes all prize money of $1000.
In a thrilling best of 5, Absolute Legends would win a game, only for CLG to peg them back time and time again. Despite playing two grand finals back to back, eventually it was the Australians who truimphed and claim the $1000 bounty. This win for the Aussies follows their 3rd placing for The Premier League, cementing their status as one of the top Dota 2 teams at the moment.

A second edition of IG Monthly Madness is in the works, with a larger prizepool and a slight change of format. After the grand final, ESFI World managed to get a few words from Chambers:
Now that it's all history, we get to look forward to doing it all over again! Draskyl and I will be back for our second season of Monthly Madness in April, as will the majority of the teams who participated in our first season. I can't give out all of the details quite yet, but I can tell you the following: the prize pool WILL be increasing, it'll still be an all Bo3 invitational tournament with open qualifiers, and we're going to be bringing you even more featured casts than the first time around. More details will be released next week!
So, for now, toss all your love and well wishes to Absolute Legends and CLG for one of the most amazing Bo5's Dota2 has seen so far, and keep tuned to It's Gosu as we gear up for next season. Until then, go watch a stream, or start a stream of your own! Let's keep our community growing!"
Until then, Dota fans can look forward to more and more tournaments, including the on-going Starladder series as well as the much anticipated Asian Dota Championships to get their fix of high skilled Dota action.
