      Congratz to the SG e-sports for this important victory.


        I ask this every tournament - don't put spoilers on your front page. Valve let you block results and any mainstream website is conscious of the fact that some people like to watch VODs. Just leave your title as 'Kiev Major Playoffs Day 1 & 2 Recap'


          Removed the spoiler, good point

                                Bottom line for Secret is that they threw their run away hard. Watch the games again and you'll see that they multiple times attacked when they should be farming, dove when they had no vision, and stayed longer than they should. They were completely pathetic in game 2 and 3, and I fully expect them to make changes to the team.

                                      TNC can never win against FACELESS


                                        The moment I saw TNC draw Faceless, I knew that despite their strong group stage, they were going out. The stats say it; they've never taken a whole BO3 series against Faceless

                                        why are u crying lol

                                          A talking 1k player against TNC.


                                            TNC will be forever in our Hearts FeelsBadMan

                                                  og vs liquid in finals hype. liquid shows a really good preformance after waking up from a loss


                                                    How is Kiev "home" crowd for a Russian team? If anything it should be enemy territory considering how anti Russia Ukrainians have been in recent years since the farce in Crimea.

                                                          DW, VP mid, no[o]ne is ukrainian. ukrain maybe anti-russian but its their goverment that anti-russian, not their people, i believe.

                                                            This has been some great Dota. Very excited for the finals.

                                                              Definitely sad for the SEA region get matched with their co-region at the first brackets of the main event. I blame the Single Elimination for this (Dota is a game of chance, seeing how many spells have randoms and unconventional terrain so why take the risk of doing a single elimination) and Faceless not doing well enough at the group stage.

                                                                          Team Secret lost with SG because they got to cocky after the 1 game because it was to easy. They underestimate them. SG is not a great team but have really good coordination and teamwork. But best team in the Major is VP in my opinion. VP always make good tournaments but never win. I think they deserve to win at least this one.


                                                                            SG showed that they're a very good team, beating Secret and making EG suffer to win.
                                                                            Go Brazil!


                                                                              SG good team. HFN, TAVO, 4DR, KINGRD and C4T They demonstrated that South America deserves and much that VALVE did in giving the opportunity. Now I wanted and very much to see the faces of those who spoke badly of Latin America, saying that what VALVE did was "charity, unnecessary" that there is no scenario here, but the team that everyone doubted disqualified the unbeaten and favorite Secret and Almost won the game against EG in an exciting BO3, in short, I would love to see the face of all those cancers who love talking nonsense. It seems that the Latin American scenario has already gained its place in the VALVE championships. HFN best farm the major. lol
