Virtus.Pro thumped over OG in the Summit 6 grand finals, 3:0, to walk away with the title and further tighten their grip on their newfound form. The CIS team will receive 42.5% of the prize-pool, $42,500.
Since the Summit 6 served as a warm-up for the forthcoming Boston Major, Virtus.Pro’s prospects are enticing.
Things are starting to come together nicely for Virtus.Pro, who might now very well walk into the Boston Major as favorites.
Virtus.Pro blew away the competition to become a somewhat surprising front runner at the Summit 6. After knocking EHOME down to the Lower Brackets with a 2:1 victory, VP walked all over The International 6 champions, Wings Gaming, 2:0.
They put an end to OG’s flawless run next, dropping them to the Lower Brackets as well and taking the first spot in the grand finals, where they would face OG once again, much to the same outcome.
The CIS team has delivered in a big way all throughout the Summit 6 and look to have turned a corner in their recent performances. The turnaround in form is largely down to the complete roster overhaul the team has gone through this summer.
On June 30th, Sneg1 dissolved the entire Dota 2 roster due to the squad’s lackluster track record last season and failure to qualify for The International 6.
The new roster led by Alexey “Solo” Berezin was revealed early August, before the post-TI6 reshuffle.
VP took their first title for the new season in the BTS EU series #4 and followed up by qualifying for the Summit 6, Dota Pit League season 5 and, most importantly, the Boston Major.
