Misery continues for international Dota 2 team Cloud9 as they failed to exact revenge on their American rivals Evil Geniuses  in the Grand Final of Dream League 2 which took place last weekend.

Their bad record against the American giants persisted after they were outclassed once again by the world number three squad in the best-of-five series.

Despite their best efforts, Cloud9 were unable to perform on their best level after having played nine consecutive games on the final day of the competition.

While EG had a relatively easy time disposing of Russian powerhouse Virtus.Pro in the Upper Bracket Final, C9 had to bounce back from a 0-2 deficit to defeat the Russians 3-2 in the Lower Brackets.

In the Grand Final, Cloud9 managed to take one game off EG, but the Americans proved too strong and took the championship with a 3-1 score.

Game number one was the highlight of the match, where Cloud9 managed to gain a significant lead only to lose it after EG won a major teamfight towards the end of the game.

By Game number four, some 120,000 viewers were tuning into the match via Twitch.tv, and EG’s 11-minute Roshan attempt was foiled by Cloud9. Nonetheless, EG racked up a major advantage by the 20th minute and kept tight onto their lead.

With the end of the tournament, EG has climbed to 3rd in the world rankings while Cloud9 has slipped to 6th.

The only non-Europoean team to make it into the top 8 is MVP.Phoenix, and former TI champions Alliance have again failed to impress with a lowly eighth placing.

Final Standings:

First Place – Evil Geniuses – US$40,000
Second Place – Cloud9 – US$25,000
Third Place – Virtus.pro – US$12,500
Fourth Place – VP.Polar – US$7,500
Fifth Place – Team Tinker – US$5,000
Sixth Place – 4ASC – US$5,000
Seventh Place – MVP.Phoenix – US$2,000
Eighth Place – Alliance – US$2,000
