conquer the Bucharest Major
Virtus Pro have claimed back to back Major victories and have become the first team to secure their direct invite to TI8.
They took down VGJ.Thunder 3-0 in a one sided stomp where the first two games took less than 30 minutes each. The third game featured Ramzes' Brood pushing into T3 towers by 6 minutes, solo killing any hero that came near him. It only took 31 minutes for VP to close out the final game. The addition of RodjER continues to work out extremely well for VP as teams have even started to prioritize his heroes in the banning stages to no avail.
VP started off the tournament with a surprising loss to OpTic during the group stage bo1's but cleanly finish 3-1 taking down LFY, Na`Vi, and TnC to secure their spot in the top 8. From there they got their revenge against OpTic, eliminating them from the tournament 2-0 before matching up against Team Liquid in the semi-finals. While they were pressured by TL, VP also swept them aside in a 2-1 victory which pushed them through to the finals.
While VGJ.Thunder may have fallen to Virtus Pro they still walk away with an incredibly important finals appearance in a Major. The DPC points they earned from Bucharest has moved them up to 6th place, behind Vici Gaming and Newbee.
