A match of continuous back and forth engagements kept the viewers at the edge of their seats as both teams were capable of swinging the game in their favor, one fight at a time. In the end Team Secret’’s constant smoke-gank pressure and stellar focus on certain heroes was the deciding factor that led to their ultimate victory.
