After a dramatic series against Virtus.Pro, Team Secret showed that they were the better prepared team for the event and snatched the trophy, $350 000 and secured themselves an invite to The International 2019 with the extra 4950 DPC points.
Even though they lost to Virtus.Pro in the upper bracket final it seemed like the “curse” between the two teams was present this time as well and the team who won the first time lost the second one.

This was the first Major win of Team Secret after they added the Polish carry player Michał “Nisha” Jankowski and the Swedish offlaner Ludwig “Zai” Wåhlberg even though the squad showed excellent results during the The Kuala Lumpur Major where they ended on second place losing to Virtus.Pro in the grand finals.
With this win Team Secret are now mathematically securing themselves an invite for The International 2019, which will be held in Shanghai.
A deeper look at what lead them to this crushing 3-1 victory over VP can be expected later this week on buyback.gg.
