Team Spirit walk away with the title and $20,000 prize in D2CL 2021 Season 2  after besting Hellbear Smashers 3:1 in the grand finals.

Team Spirit has risen to the top of the CIS chain over the course of the last year. They grew into a true tier-one contender through the DPC 2020-2021 season and after the AniMajor it was already clear that they were the main favourites in the TI10 qualifiers. Their upper bracket run proved it even before clinching the highly coveted spot for the region. 

And now they have done it again. While some teams that are headed to The International 10 have taken a break, Team Spirit is continuing to compete in events —and win them. 

Being invited directly into the playoff seed, Team Spirit made another upper-bracket run for the grand finals. They dropped only one game to Hellbear Smashers in the Upper Bracket Round 2, the rest of the matches belonged solely to them. 

In the grand finals they met up once again with the European squad. 

Hellbear took a convincing first win off the CIS team, but the Team Spirit answered the call in the second game with a very aggressive and convincing win. The next two games were equally one-sided in their favor, giving up only four deaths in the last game.
