Some of the other teams featuring high up in the betting odds before the event included OG, Team Liquid, and Team Nigma.
Vikin.GG came into the tournament as outsiders to succeed. However, a look at their recent record going into the competition shows they are a team to be feared. The entered EPIC League Division 1 on the back of a victory at Dota Summit 13 and previously claimed victory at victory at BTS Pro Season 3. Many people felt Vikin.GG still had a big step to make if they were to mix it with the best teams in Europe and they appear to have done exactly that, upsetting the odds in the process.
Following the 2-0 sweep of OG on the 21st of November, Vikin.GG took sole possession of first place in Division 1. However, perhaps their best performance of the tournament to date came against Virtus.pro, who were top of the table with a 100% record going into the match. Despite having gone 1-0 down, Vikin.GG showed their resilience and skill to win the second game and went on to both out-draft and out-play Virtus.pro in the third game. That result saw Vikin.GG move back to the top of the division.
Although the team may not have been taken seriously as a potential winner before the event, Vikin.GG are now one of the major contenders to win the 2020 EPIC League Division 1.
