Dota 2: Team Secret takes Chongqing Major titlePosted on: Jan 29, 2019 By smartlaunch in News and trends,
Team Secret won the grand final of the USD 1 million Chongqing Major in China on Sunday. After sweeping Evil Geniuses 2-0 in the lower bracket final, Team Secret moved on to the best-of-five grand final against Virtus.pro.
On Sunday, Team Secret upended their rivals 3-1 to claim the USD 350,000 top prize. Virtus.pro had already advanced to the grand final by defeating Team Secret 2-1 in the upper bracket final on Friday and had also beaten them 3-2 in the grand final of the Kuala Lumpur Major in November.
Team Secret jumped out to the early lead, taking the first game in just 21 minutes. They only intensified the pressure from there, winning the second game in 17 minutes. Virtus.pro rallied to win a lengthy third game but couldn’t carry the momentum any further as a focused and patient Team Secret made their move at the 30-minute mark and forced Virtus.pro to give up.
With the victory, Team Secret qualifies for The International 2019. Virtus.pro already had qualified via its win in the Kuala Lumpur Major.
