Evil Geniuses swept Virtus.Pro, 3:0, in the Upper Bracket finals of the Dota Pit League Season 3, and secured their placement in the tournament’s Grand Finals.
Dota Pit League Season 3 resumed on June 12th after a long hiatus due to various scheduling conflicts during the busy LAN tournament season and the TI5 qualifiers. The tournament series started back in January.
Evil Geniuses triumphed over their final obstacle to reach the Grand Finals. Sweeping through CIS TI5 contenders, Virtus.Pro, Evil Geniuses took the best-of-five series and eliminated VP from the event.

Dota Pit League Season 3 Grand Finals
The Grand Finals details are yet to be determined and will be based on the results of the Lower Bracket finals between Cloud 9 and Ninjas in Pyjamas. The date and time for the Lower Bracket finals have not yet been announced.
Ninjas in Pyjamas advanced to the Lower Brackets finals when Team Secret announced they were withdrawing from the event to focus on training for TI5. The two teams were set to face each other in third round of the Lower Brackets.
As of earlier today Team Secret has unfortunately had to withdraw from the ongoing Dota Pit Season 3 in order to focus on The International.
