Team Secret win sixth straight grand final at BEYOND EPIC
CMD368 – Another grand finals appearance, another 3-0 sweep for Team Secret. The European Dota 2 team bested Nigma for a sixth straight title at BEYOND EPIC today. While it wasn’t the cleanest win for Secret, Puppey and his team bounced back from an early upset and waltzed into the grand finals with the intent to run over Nigma.
Nigma didn’t make things easy for one of their oldest rivals, but Secret always found a way to pull out a victory in the end, starting with an incredible 11/2/11 performance from Nisha’s Morphling. He and MATUMBAMAN combined for more than 100,000 hero damage as Secret took control of the series.
There will be pain, there will be screaming. 😈
Nigma put up a good fight, but can they turn things around? Game 3 is live soon!

Secret have now won the last six Online tournaments which they have participated in, all with 3-0 flawless scorelines in the grand final:
- WePlay! Pushka League Season 1: Division 1
- Gamers Without Borders 2020
- OGA Dota PIT 2020 Online: Europe/CIS
- ESL One Birmingham 2020 – Online: EU & CIS
- Blast Bounty Hunt
- Beyond Epic: EU & CIS
For Nigma, the second-place finish is a step in the right direction, as they still struggle to find their footing at times – but the question is, can anyone really challenge Team Secret? This was not only the team’s sixth straight win but also the sixth time they have swept another top-tier competitor in the grand finals. They have placed themselves in a tier above every other competitor in Europe, which is largely considered the strongest region in Dota.
