OG(Ana, Topson, Ceb, JerAx, and captain N0tail), defeated Team Liquid (Miracle-, w33, MinD_ContRol, GH and captain KuroKy), 3-1 in a best of 5. Team Liquid managed to win the first match, however, they couldn’t hold their nerves till the last and OG dominated them in rest of the matches.

OG was the winner of the first-ever TI back in 2018. But this time it was different as they had to play like champions, which they did to perfection and maintained 100% Upper Bracket wins at the Main Event. “They are so far ahead of any other team because of the versatility of their playstyle,” said one of the commentators at TI9.
