Tundra Esports capped off their successful run in the DPC 2022 season with an almost flawless performance at The International 2022(TI11). The European team finished with a record of 14-4, which was good enough to earn them the top spot in their group.
Following this, the team was victorious in the main event of the competition, in which they won all of their matches in the upper bracket, culminating in a 3-0 victory over Team Secret in the championship match.
After everything was said and done, Tundra was awarded the top prize of US$8.5 million, which was the lion’s share of the entire prize pool of US$18.9 million that was offered at TI11.
Following The International 11, at a press conference that was given by the organization, the current Dota 2 global champions discussed in greater detail what they plan to purchase now that they have earned the most money of their whole careers.
Tundra Esports’ TI11 champions disclose their prize money purchases
The initiative has already been taken by Martin “Saksa” Sazdov.
“I did acquire an apartment already today,” remarked Saksa. “That’s actually something that I’ve already purchased, but I’m more of a minimalist man so I’ll just stick to the stuff that I need,” she said. “That’s actually something that I’ve already purchased.”
One of the players who plays in the position 4 support role on the squad mentioned that he plans to most likely use the remainder of his money to purchase items for his family.
Oliver “skiter” Lepko, the carry player for Tundra, looked to be the most eager about spending his TI11 money when compared to his teammates.
He stated, “I’m hoping to complete the renovations on my residence.” “I purchased it the year before. The money that is spent on the upgrades will be put to good use.”
In addition, Skiter is glad that he can finally get rid of his old automobile from 2004, and replace it with something that is brand spanking new. Aside from that, he has plans to either make some investments with the money or buy some new clothing with it.
Saksa and Leon “Nine” Kirilin share a similar goal in that they both want to purchase a new apartment for themselves. The midlaner indicated that, other than that, he does not have anything further planned at this time.
Nine stated, “There’s nothing in particular that I’m hankering after.” “I wish there was nothing I could do about it and I could simply let it be.”
Both the offlaner on the squad, Neta “33” Shapira, and the coach, Kurtis “Aui 2000” Ling, have stated that they want to look into investing the money so that they can ensure their financial stability in the years to come.
The member in Tundra’s roster that exemplified selflessness and generosity the most was the team’s captain, Wu “Sneyking” Jingjun. The position 5 support player has decided against purchasing anything for himself and will instead invest his money in a new home for his grandparents.
“They’re now living in the basement with us, so it’s difficult for them to walk up and down the stairs when they’re up in age,” said Sneyking. “It’s hard for them to go up and down the stairs when they’re up in age.” We’re trying to find a property that has a bedroom on the ground level for them, so that they won’t have to get up and down as much. That is the most expensive item on my shopping list.
Since the first regional Tour of the DPC 2023 season won’t begin until January 9 of the following year, Tundra Esports will have the whole offseason to spend the prize money they won at TI11.
