It’s (monkey) Business vs Team Secret in the MLG World Finals semifinals today – and the duel between Johan ‚BigDaddy‘ Sundstein and the team that kicked him at the beginning of this year.
BigDaddy faces his old team today in the MLG World Finals round of 4. From August 2014 to January 2015 he was part of one of the most astonishing success stories of Dota 2 ever, the rise of the [secret team]. Then he got kicked out, played a modestly successful summer season with Cloud 9 and returns now to take revenge with his newly formed team (monkey) Business in their most important match to date.
(monkey) Business currently plays five majors including MLG
(monkey) Business won’t be as rocketing as Team Secret once was. The team which includes FLY and MoonMeander besides team captain BigDaddy lost in the EU qualifiers for the World Cyber Arena as well as in the NanYang qualifiers.
But (monkey) Business takes part in five major tournaments at the moment, including the Frankfurt Major, and by beating Evil Geniuses in the group stage of the MLG World Finals, they have shown their potential.
Team Secret slows down on winning just a bit
Besides, the Secret Team that BigDaddy left in January isn’t anything like the team he plays against today. Only estonian team captain Puppey, the most successful Dota 2 player in history is left of the legendary squad that dominated the last two seasons of Dota 2.
But the addition of players like EternaLEnVy and pieliedie hasn’t slown the team down much. They won the EU qualifiers for the World Cyber Arena and were runner-up at ESL New York lately – behind the surprising winners of Vega Squadron.
