OpenAI next TI champions?

Dota 2 Cristy “Pandoradota2” Ramadani

OpenAI defeated TI8 champions, OG, 2:0 in the Open AI Five Finals. 

An exclusive show match between TI8 championship team, OG and the Open AI bots team took place last night in San Francisco, California. 

The complete, and intact, OG roster was on hand to compete against the bots, which had been in training since their appearance at The International 8 when they lost both series against paiN Gaming and Big God. 

Since then OpenAI Five has been training and the payoff has been big. In a 2:0 sweep, the team took down OG with the second game being only 20 minutes long.  

Of course, OG looked like they were having fun and the series wasn't structured or played out in traditional Captains Mode format. Instead, it contained an altered rule set and hero selection as noted below:

In the end, it was all fun and games but the indication of progress from the OpenAI 5 team is significant. But they aren't even close to done yet.

The development team revealed and then demonstrated how the bots can now become part of a human team, as one of the teammates. 

Fans can get in on the action now and sign up to compete with or against the bots too.

    God damn it, it’s hard to tolerate this pseudo-journalism any longer. You’re writing this as if OG were still relevant in today’s Dota 2 rankings. Yes, they’re the International 2018 champions but looking at how things stand at the moment, they’re barely top 10 world. Barely. Also, while i admire how far OpenAI has gone, your headline makes one think that they could really be a contender for this year’s title. No, they don’t stand a chance (hence, all those rules set in place during the game).
