Team Secret clinch first Major spot
Team Secret is the first to clinch a spot at the upcoming Singapore Major starting March 27th.
In news that surprises absolutely no one, Team Secret is the first team that has locked in their spot for the first Major of the DPC 2021 Season. And of course, they did it with style —a 6:0 series record, dropping only two matches in 14 games.
Team Secret dominated the online season leading up to DPC 2021 Season 1 with an eight-consecutive title run and impressive results consistently. They were rewarded with a direct invite to the upper-division of the first season.
Their impressive performance and results in the season pay off with 500 DPC points $30,000 and a direct seed into the playoffs of the Singapore Major.
They still have to play one more series next week against OG but the results won't change their standings.
Meanwhile, it is still a close race for the second Major spot and the two Wild Card series slots. Europe is without a doubt going to be intense through the rest of the week, leading into week 6 for everyone expect perhaps High Coast Esports who have little to no hope in climbing out of the last place spot. Their last series will be next week against Team Nigma.
