EPICENTER Major 2019: Team Secret leaves the championshipLord Matus
The battle between OG and Team Secret is spectacular for sure as the first map for over in 27 minutes. The second lasted for 41 minutes, but it was lopsided. Another noticeable fact is that Sockshka, the captain of the team played instead of n0tail for OG demonstrating a great performance on Jakiro and being a big threat for the European roster. At the aftermath interview he confessed that OG didn't have any difficult strategies and all their game was based on team play, but not macro game.
On the first game day n0tail reported that he had some health problems and their first match was postponed. After it became clear that the Europeans didn't have time for n0tail to recover, they decided to substitute the captain for the coach and as we could see, this action was beneficial for the team.
At the third round of the lower bracket OG will play against PSG.LGD, who kicked Forward Gaming out of the competition.
Team Secret took the 9-12 place and got a money reward of $15,000.
