Secret remain untouchable as EG get pummeled into the lower bracket
After OG dominated Team Nigma, it was time for another upper
bracket series in the playoffs of OMEGA League: Europe Immortal Division with
Team Secret taking on Evil Geniuses for a spot in the upper bracket finals.
Secret have been methodical in all their recent tournaments,
having flawless victories as they took first place at the last SIX events which
they have been involved in. From the beginning of the OMEGA League event, it
seemed extremely likely that they would be in for a seventh title, going
unbeaten in the group stage of the event. Their challenger today would be Evil Geniuses,
playing their first event in the EU region and hoping to make a great showing
too – but it would be no easy task.
Right from the start of the first game of the series it was
clear that EG would probably not get their way as Secret dropped only five
kills, with Michal “Nisha” Jankowski going 14-0-6 on his Leshrac, pulling his
team into a 1-0 lead. As expected, the series would be just another walk in the
park for Secret as game two saw another brutal destruction by the squad.
Although EG actually managed to take a few good fights and break into double
digits on the scoreboard this time, having mega-creeps beating down at your
ancient in 30-minutes is never a good sign.
In a little over an hour in total, the entire series was
over as Secret took a simple and relatively uncontested 2-0 victory over EG.
The win will see Secret move into the upper bracket finals where they will face
OG for the second time at OMEGA League: EU Immortal Division. For EG, their
path now leads to the lower bracket where Alliance will be their first challenge
to overcome should they want a shot at revenge. Tomorrow we will see OMEGA
League return with that series after Team Nigma and Team Liquid fight to keep
their tournament lives.
