Day three of The International Dota 2 world championships is complete — here are the results

It was a day of big games, upsets, and the end of the road for some teams in everything but the strictest sense of the word at day three of Valve's Dota 2 International world championship.

The day started with a match between fan-favorites Na'Vi and their American offshoots Na'Vi.US with a surprising outcome. The big plays continued throughout the day as wildcard seed Liquid upset the dominant IG, who would also later go on to play one of the most exciting matches of the day against Cloud9 — as well as the longest game of the tournament so far. Returning champions Alliance struggled to place well enough to continue, while others have lost enough matches at this point to make tomorrow's games a formality. But the fight for the eight bracket spots in Phase Three isn't over yet, and there's still plenty to be decided on day four. The day's results are as follows:
