News for The Shanghai Major 2016

Shanghai Major: you would have thought it is over…

After a well deserved night of celebrations and a good sleep, the teams in Shanghai have woken up to yet another messy situation. The practice rooms were evacuated without prior notice - gaming gear, laptops and even car keys are missing.

Team Secret crowned Champions of the Shanghai Major

Team Secret are the named Champions of the Shanghai Major, and well deserved runner ups are Team Liquid. This breaks the chain of no professional player getting two Valve Championships as Clement 'Puppey' Ivanov is the first to break this curse. Let’s have a closer look at what exactly went on in the Grand Finals of the first Winter Major.

Team Liquid upset Evil Geniuses and advance to the Shanghai Major grand finals

Evil Geniuses are denied the grand finals spot by losing the lower bracket final against Team Liquid on the back of an overwhelming performance by the Europeans.

Probably the most intense day so far at the Mercedes Benz Arena, ended late in the night in China with an incredible fight for the top six between the Frankfurt Major Champions, OG and the ones they eliminated in the first lower bracket game four months ago, Fnatic.

compLexity Gaming destroy Alliance's hopes at the Shanghai Major
