Team Secret are your Shanghai Champions!
After a crazy event filled with upsets (and upsetting production problems), Team Secret have come out on top, winning 3-1 against Liquid. Interestingly enough, Frankfurt (Fall) Major winners OG and WCA/Starladder 13 winners Alliance placed only 7th-8th in the tournament.
Special mention goes to MVP.Phoenix and Fnatic for making SEA proud. Both teams performed way better than expected.
In the wake of disappointing placements, LGD, EHOME, Vici, and CDEC are allegedly undergoing some major shuffling of players.
In addition, Valve issued a statement regarding the sub-par tournament conditions. You can read it here.
