Mudgolems put an end to Team Secret’s 4 month streak

Ever since COVID-19 took over the world and the Dota 2 pro scene moved to an online format, Team Secret has easily been the most dominant team. In fact, they’ve won pretty much every tournament that they’ve played in.

However, it seems their luck has come to an end, as they’ve finally lost against Mudgolems. This was their first loss in over four months, which means that they will have to play in the LB of ESL One Germany.

What happened?

Needless to say, Mudgolems was an underdog in this series. In fact, most expected Team Secret to rip through them, but this never happened. Fata- and his team-mates had a four-day break and it seems that they used that time to learn about Secret’s weak spots.

The first game of the series looked pretty even during the drafting stage. Nonetheless, Mudgolems’ last pick Chaos Knight proved to be a little bit too strong for Secret to deal with. Furthermore, the team also used their IO and Undying for rotations around the map, which allowed them to have enough space for their cores to farm. Although Secret tried to bounce back, their efforts were futile and they had to concede game one.

Victory had a massive effect on Mudgolems. Even though the panel didn’t give them much chance, Fata and Co. also dominated in the second game of this amazing series.

They decided to pick IO yet again, but instead of pairing him with CK, they went for Sven. This is one of those heroes that’s capable of winning the game on his own, as long as he gets a good start.

Team Secret tried to stick more to the meta, picking Phantom Assassin. This hero is generally considered to be a good pick against Sven, but it didn’t work this time.

The game began relatively slow as neither team was willing to make risky moves. However, once Sven got his core items, things quickly changed for the worse for Secret.

They didn’t really have an answer for Mudgolem’s aggression, which meant they had no other option but to use the GG call. Following the loss, Team Secret will have to play in the LB of the event. On the other side, Mudgolems have secured themselves a top-three finish at ESL One Germany.

Team Secret wins the OGA Dota PIT Season 3

It seems like nothing can stop the march of Team Secret. The European powerhouse managed to win yet another tournament after a nearly flawless performance. This victory means that Team Secron has won its last 8 Grand Finals.

What happened?

Team Secret had little to no problems winning this event. The team ripped through their competition like a knife through butter and had to play against VP.Prodigy in the grand final. VPP is one of the biggest surprises of the event and proved yet again that this is the future of the CIS Dota 2 scene.

Sadly, the team was unable to stop Team Secret from winning yet another event. Game one was really close as both Team Secret and VP.Prodigy had a good laning stage. In fact, VPP even took the lead at one point, but after a few wrong moves, the Europeans managed to regain control of the game. Needless to say, a team that’s as experienced as Team Secret managed to keep the lead and won the first game of the series.

It seems that the loss had a negative impact on VP.P’s performance as they couldn’t do much in game two. Unlike the first game of the series where they were really aggressive, the CIS team played super defensively. They’ve decided to pick heroes that have plenty of team-fight potential, but Team Secret knew how to deal with it. After just 33 minutes, Team Secret was able to deliver a knock-out punch and claimed the victory.

Just one game away from winning the event, Team Secret looked unstoppable. They decided to pick some of their best heroes and absolutely crushed their enemies. As a result, they became the OGA DOta PIT Season 3 champions.

Don’t forget to watch the other upcoming events. Even though we’re still waiting to hear more about TI 10, there are plenty of games worth watching.

OMEGA League: Europe Immortal Division – The competition so far

The OMEGA League: Europe Immortal division is the hottest tournament of this summer. Due to COVID-19, Valve made the hard decision to postpone the DPC, as well as The International. As a result, instead of watching the best teams in the world playing against each other in Sweden, we have to focus on a few online events.

However, these are no ordinary online events. The OMEGA League features the best teams from Europe, CIS , Americas, and Asia. While it’s true that every region is pretty interesting, you can’t deny the fact that the European one stands out.

With that said, here is what happened so far.

Team Secret and OG dominate the competition

As expected, the two European giants are having the time of their life in the group stage of the event. Despite being in the same group, the two teams haven’t met each other yet. So far, both of them have won every series, which means that they have six points. It will be really interesting to see what will happen because the winner of this match will most likely win the entire group.

Team Liquid’s performance is dreadful

Team Liquid was one of the squads that many considered to be the hidden favourites. However, the ex-Alliance roster has been heavily underperforming. As a result, they are currently occupying the last spot in their group with 0 points.

We really hope that TL will be able to resolve its issues after this event is over because it’s just sad to see them like this. It’s very likely to see a lot of drastic roster changes, even though this team has been together for nearly two years now.

What’s next?

We still have two more days until the group stage is over. Although we already know the names of some of the teams that will certainly advance further in the event, there are some spectacular series ahead of us, such as the one between OG and Team Secret.

Of course, let’s also not forget the first one, where Virtus.Pro will meet Evil Geniuses. As you can imagine, this will be a breath-taking match because there is a lot of history between these two teams. Also, don’t forget that one of EG’s players Roman “RAMZES666” Kushnarev used to be a vital part of VP before.

OMEGA League Europe Immortal Division Overview

We are just a few days away from the beginning of the OMEGA League. The tournament organized by WePlay! and Epic Esports Events will feature the best teams from Europe, CIS, North America, and South America.

Let’s take a look at everything you need to know about the event.


The Immortal division will have a total of twelve teams. Ten of the participants were directly invited, whereas the other two had to go through qualifiers. The total prize pool for the event is $600,000. However, Europe will take “only” $500,000.

The twelve teams will be placed into two groups with six teams each. All the matches there will be Bo3, and the top two teams will advance to the Upper Bracket of the playoffs. The team that finishes third will move to the Lower Bracket of the playoffs.

The fourth and fifth-placed teams will have to fight in the Play-in Stage. Depending on their performance there, they will either end up in the Divine Upper Bracket or Immortal Lower Bracket. Lastly, the team that finishes last in both groups will go to the Upper Bracket of the Divine vision.

As for the playoffs, we will see a classic double-elimination bracket where every single game is Bo3. However, the Grand Final will be a Bo5.


Alongside the top European & CIS teams, the tournament organizers decided to let Evil Geniuses take part as well. Even though they are a North American team, the prize pools for the region aren’t good, which forces the team to compete outside their territory.

Apart from EG, the other team that definitely stands out here is Team Secret. Needless to say, Puppey and his team-mates have proven themselves as the most dominant force in Dota 2. Ever since COVID-19 destroyed the DPC, the European powerhouse won pretty much every event they played in, which is just impressive.

Another name that’s going to be interesting to follow is Alliance. Nikobaby and co. have had a few fantastic months. In fact, if it wasn’t for Team Secret, the TI 3 champions would have won numerous events. Even though they’ve lost almost all of their matches against Secret, Alliance proved that they have what it takes to win against the best teams in the world.

Last, but definitely not least, we have Team Nigma and Virtus.Pro. These two powerhouses have been truly dangerous lately, which is why we believe that they have a solid chance to win, although their journey won’t be easy.
