Team Secret 3-0 Team Liquid to Win the DreamLeague Season 8 Major

The DreamLeague Season 8 Major is over and Team Secret proved that they are once again the strongest Dota 2 team in the world. As a result of this victory, the Europeans were awarded half a million dollars and 2250 Dota Pro Circuit points. Overall, Team Secret is now the highest ranked team in the world, having a total of 3690 qualifying points.

For 3 of Secret’s players (Clement “Puppey” Ivanov, Adrian “Fata” Trinks and Yeik “MidOne” Nai Zheng) this title isn’t something entirely new, as all of them have experienced success at the highest level before. But for the other 2 (Marcus “Ace” Hoelgaard and Yazied “YapzOr” Jaradat), winning this Major was definitely the highest achievement of their career.

During the DreamLeague Season 8 Major, Team Secret encountered and defeated 3 out of the 4 remaining top 5 teams in the world: Evil Geniuses, Newbee and Team Liquid. And they did it in an impressive fashion, dropping only one game throughout the entire tournament, in the upper bracket Finals against Team Liquid.

The Grand Finals was a reiteration of the upper bracket Finals, but this time Team Secret looked even stronger than before. The level of skill displayed by both squads was absolutely incredible, with the first 2 games lasting around 70 minutes each. But, in the end, Team Secret prevailed, being on point in both their drafting and execution.
