After losing to Vici Gaming earlier in the playoffs, Evil Geniuses have VG and the patch all figured out as they rolled over the Chinese team 2-1. Once thought to be the favourite to win the tournament, Vici Gaming's journey in The Summit 3 has come to a disappointing third place end.
In what quickly came to become the most anticipated match-up of the tournament, Secret showed an overall better consistency and execution and took down Vici Gaming 2-1 and moves on to the grand final.
With caution and care, Evil Geniuses chipped away at LGD's towers to eliminate the Chinese team in fourth place from The Summit 3. EG is set to face the loser of Vici Gaming versus Secret tomorrow in the loser bracket final.
Team Secret came back from the tiny disadvantage they had in both games to totally overrunning Evil Geniuses for the second winner bracket final spot. They will be facing Vici Gaming in the winner bracket final while Evil Geniuses will face LGD in the dreaded elimination game next.
Cleaning up iG in a convincing fashion in game one, LGD had a tougher game two against their countrymen but came out on top anyway. Winning the series 2-0, LGD will be heading to the playoffs in which they will face Vici Gaming in the first round.
Evidently coming into the tournament to gain experience, Not Today has learned a lot in terms of knowledge from these games, the Peruvians fought bravely but it was not enough to take down the Chinese juggernatus LGD and Invictus Gaming.
