The Russian powerhouse secured their second Major grand final appearance this season after cleaning out Team Secret in a fantastic 3-game series.
When it was time for the biggest and most-anticipated series of the day at the Chongqing Major, no one knew what to expect, considering the caliber and reputation of the two teams about to compete. Virtus.pro had continued to dominate this DPC season with their championship at the Kuala Lumpur Major, the first of the season. Team Secret, on the other hand, were the ones who stood in their way in the nail-biting 5-game grand finals in November.
Now, they were back at each others' throats, fighting for a spot at another top-2 finish at a DPC Major, and a direct path to the championship prize. And they proved today, that they were hungrier than ever.
Four of the top six teams continue their quest tomorrow, January 26th, starting with the first series between EHOME and Evil Geniuses at 05:00 CET.
