Team Secret’s dominance continues. They’ve won yet another tournament. And this time they did it without dropping a single game.

Team Secret’s record is getting even better

Less than two weeks ago, Team Secret won the WePlay! Pushka League after going 11 – 3 in the group stage and 9 – 0 in the playoffs. Not long after, they won the Gamers Without Borders charity tournament with an impressive 7 – 1 record. 

Now they’ve done it again, and this time without dropping a single game. Team Secret went 8 – 0 in the group stage and 7 – 0 in the playoffs, increasing their already incredible recent tally to 42 wins, 4 losses and 3 titles. Keep in mind, those 4 losses were individual games within a series. So they’re really not losses at all.

Team Secret dominated the group stage and the playoffs

The OGA Dota PIT 2020 had some incredible games. Team Secret steamrolled Virtus.Pro, Team Liquid, Team Spirit and Ninjas in Pyjamas in the group stage, which is no easy task. 

The playoffs weren’t supposed to be any easier. But Team Secret made it work. Alliance gave them the most trouble, although they still beat them quite convincingly in two fifty-minute games. 

After that, it was too easy. Team Secret made surprisingly quick work of OG in the upper bracket final, crushing them in less than thirty minutes in both games. 

Team Liquid also beat OG in the lower bracket final, earning then a place in the final series. They were all that stood between Team Secret and another title. But it wasn’t even close.

Team Secret clean sweep Team Liquid in the final series

The first game only lasted 34 minutes, and that was the longest one in the series. Michal “Nisha” Jankowski was at his best on Templar Assassin, with 7 kills, 10 assists, and only one death. He had a net worth of 24.8k and dealt 31.8k damage, the most in the game.

The second game was the shortest. It ended in 18 minutes and 47 seconds, which is often as long as the laning phase in some games. This time, Lasse “MATUMBAMAN” Urpalainen rose to the occasion on Monkey King, with 7 kills, 9 assists and only one death. He had a net worth of 8.3k, slightly more than Nisha, who ended on 8.1k. But MATUMBAMAN dealt the most damage, capping it off at exactly 15k.

The third game was a little longer than the second, but it still only lasted 27 minutes. Ludwig “Zai” Wahlberg stood out the most in this game, with a phenomenal offlane performance on Necrophos. His net worth was slightly less than Nisha’s and MATUMBAMAN’s, but he finished on 8 kills, 8 assists, 3 deaths and 15.7k damage.

Team Secret earnt $62,000 for their first-place finish. They’ll be looking to continue their streak in ESL One Birmingham 2020, which starts tonight. It’s a much bigger tournament than the previous three and they will need to face the best teams in Europe and CIS once again. But they’ll be going into the tournament as the red-hot favourites, and nobody would be surprised if their streak continues.
