DotA E-Sports Thailand 2010 Finals Background:
Before this DotA tournament in Thailand, the Chinese DotA team (EHOME) have been very dominating. EHOME won gold medals in ESWC, IEM and the National eSports Open and they were quite heavy favorites to win the tournament.

But as all DotA pros know... in DotA, anything can happen.
It is never over until the Frozen Throne melts to the ground or when big tree uproots itself.

Congratulations Nirvana.MY!
Will we be seeing this same rivalry in DotA 2 tournaments?
Only time will tell if DotA 2 will be as big as the 1st DotA (Warcraft 3).
So Icefrog and Valve, you guys should make it happen.

Did you know that YamateH was considered as one of the best DotA gankers in 2008?
