After a 2-1 victory over Alliance last night, Secret has become the first team to qualify for the ONE Esports Dota 2 Singapore Major 2021 that is scheduled to take place from March 27- April 4, 2021. The team stands undefeated in the EU 2021 DPC Season 1: Upper Division winning all five series' that they have played. The team continues to retain its top form and momentum from 2020 and looks like an insurmountable force that no others have been able to come close to conquering.

Team Secret was considered to be the top contender to reach the Major from EU and has done so by becoming the first team to qualify from any region, on the back of multiple immaculate Dota 2 performances. 

They have lost only two matches in the five series' played till now and remain undefeated overall, securing a win in each series. They beat Tundra Esports 2-1, 2-0, Team Nigma 2-0, Team Liquid 2-0 and most recently Alliance 2-1.

Though the giants of EU Dota 2 still need to play the remaining series' in the tournament against High Coast Esports and OG, they have theoretically qualified for the Singapore Major. However, they will be looking to win the remaining two series to secure a first place finish which would grant them a direct entry into the playoffs of the Major.

Team Secret’s performances have been sheer masterclass since the start of 2020. They opened up the year with a victory in the DreamLeague S13 Major and then went on to win a total of eight online tournaments including the OMEGA League: Europe Immortal Division and the BEYOND EPIC: Europe/CIS. In fact, all of these eight victories were so one-sided that they won each grand finals series 3-0.

Courtesy of their domination in the EU Dota 2 circuit throughout 2020, they were declared as the ‘Esports Team of the Year’ by Esports Awards 2020.

With Secret taking a Major spot from the EU region, it is going to be exhilarating to see which other teams from the region are going to grab the remaining three spots. With pulling off an upset against OG the previous night, nearly all teams except High Coast Esports have a solid chance of making it to Singapore.
