As the years roll on, there are fewer and fewer players who can say that they've attended every International.
At TI6, there had been 11 players who could make that claim. At TI7, that number dropped to three: Clement "Puppey" Ivanov, Kuro "KuroKy" Salehi Takhasomi and Leong "DDC" Fat-meng.
The below infographic tracks each player's performance in the tournament series from Puppey's win with Na`Vi at the very first International in 2011 for $1 million to KuroKy's first place finish with Team Liquid at TI7 for more than $10 million.
Puppey and KuroKy attended TI together three years in a row between 2013 and 2015, first playing together on Na`Vi before the two left the org in 2014 when they founded Team Secret.
Meanwhile, DDC is a veteran of the Chinese scene playing for organizations ranging from LGD-Gaming to Vici Gaming Reborn to EHOME. His highest TI finish was at The International 2012 where he and LGD-Gaming placed third after a 2-1 loss to Invictus Gaming in the Losers' Finals.
