VP’s Earlier Success

But after taking away the first game, VP fell in the next two games which poised Team Secret to win the 2018 Dota 2 Finals in the Kuala Lumpur Major.

With VP’s earlier win against EG, they were able to come back in the finals winning the next two games to claim the first place and collecting the tournament winnings ($350,000 1st place finish).
