However, before the finals started an anonymous user "predicted" the outcome:
The tournament has been rigged, I wish I could prove it someway but I just cant, and you'll just say I'm just some lucky faggot, but mark my fucking words, newbee is gonna win 3-1. VG will win first game with deathball push, then newbee is gonna take 3 games in a row.
The best proof I can give you taht I'm right is my betting history on dota 2 lounge,because why not bet on lounge too for free items, because showing my winning/my bets can make it ez for some dota 2 lounge admin to find out who I am. I wont risk my job for 4chan. You can believe me or you can ignore me
I won't reply to any questions, cuz I won't post anymore for now. I expect a "Thank you based insider anon" post after the finals."
Some claim that this is easily faked:
However, some DOTA2 players reported that this was the only image circulating BEFORE the finals started. You can verify that this post was made before the finals started by looking at timestamp of the archive here.
