Home I eSports I eSports I VP Wins ESL One Hamburg
Virtus.Pro won the Grand Prize again after 133 days, and for the first time conquered Valve’s major competition.
The first major tournament of Autumn was won by Virtus.Pro. They had been the dark horses for more than a year now, finally, they secured 2-0 in the final against Secret. ESL One Hamburg had 1 million dollars and 1500 qualifying points on the line for the participating teams. The competition also included two finalists of TI7, but they both lost in the semi-finals. Team Liquid lost to Secret, while Newbee fell prey to the champions, VP.
After a long time, these two sides, Secret and VP, met in a new grand finale. The Russians had already met TI7 Winner Liquid after Keen Gaming was eliminated. However, they were better than The International champions, as they won 2-0 and then won the next series 2-1 vs Newbee. Team Secret was similarly dominant over the weekend as they first won against EG then beat Newbee, and in the semi-finals, they won against Liquid 2-1.
After a dangerous draft, Secret entered the game on the side of intelligence with so much nuke on their team. Lina’s pairing with Pugna was able to dominate the match for some time with the support of Mirana and Spirit Breaker.
However, VP made a good comeback. Ilya “Lil” Ilyuk’s rotation and Ilya “Lil” Ilyuk’s appearance came at the best possible time in most cases. From there on the downfall of Secret started. Sniper was overwhelming in the late game and completely demolished the opposition. Within 40 minutes they won the map.
The early game was similar to the first match, although Clement “Puppey” Ivanov somewhat lost to VP in the draft. Even with the Spirit Breaker, they were still less likely to get on the scorecard. As in the 15th minute, Bara was only level 4. By this time VP had teamed up and started to push.
As a result, the Russian team grew more and more close to the base of Secret. Finally, they broke down the opposition and won, 2-0.
For the first time in the history of DotA 2, the best player in the tournament was also awarded. The MVP has become a happy owner of a $50,000 Mercedes Benz. The individual voted by the community could only be Virtus.Pro’s support Alexei “Solo” Berezin.
Team Secret is now a little relaxed, but on November 19, in China for the Perfect World Masters, they will have to get back into fighting shape.
