"Good luck, brother" - YawaR was defeated at the hands of his younger brother and wished him every success on his way to The International 10

Recently, an unusual story happened in the vastness of the professional Dota 2 scene. In the second round of the lower bracket of The International 10, Quincy Crew and OG fought against each other for the right to continue to participate in the event. It is noteworthy that two siblings played on both sides of the barricade: Yavar 'YawaR' Hassan on the side of the Quincy Crew and Sumail 'SumaiL' Hassan under the OG tag.

The confrontation was not too long, but this match was remembered by Dota 2 fans not only because OG are still fighting in the tournament and have a chance to defend the title of The International champion for the second time in a row, but also by the exchange of messages at the end of the match.

The first map was completed in 40 minutes. There, OG's Topson became a herald of death for his opponents and, taking Void Spirit, finished the map with a score of 20-3-4. YawaR also played well on Monkey King with a stats of 14-3-7 and the Quincy Crew even made 4 more kills, but this was not enough to defeat his opponent and the QC throne fell for the first time. The card ended with a score of 26-30 in 40 minutes. On the second map, Topson has already worked in a duet with Saksa and made 11 kills for each. Topias Taavitsainen used Dawnbreaker for his own purposes, and Saksa performed on Snapfire. The meeting ended in 38 minutes with a score of 33-38.

At the end of the match, Yavar 'YawaR' Hassan wrote to his younger brother 'gg gl lil bor' (great game and good luck, little brother), to which Sumail 'SumaiL' Hassan replied with 'gg' and substituted a crying Undying emoticon at the end. The commenters read these messages out loud and amplified the drama, and the exchange of these messages between the brothers sparked some discussion in the Dota 2 community.

The fight between the Hassan brothers was the first in The International. Prior to that, Sumail and Yavar crossed paths with each other only in other LAN championships and online competitions.

The Quincy Crew finished their way in the championship, finishing in 9th-12th place in the standings. The team received a cash reward of $ 800,400.
