As for the teams that are participating in the tournament, the champion of the Kuala Lumpur Major stands to win US$350,000 as well as 4,950 Dota Pro Circuit points, which will bring them close to qualifying for The International 2019.
Today saw PSG.LGD fight against Team Secret, where the former had a straightforward game in winning 2-0 (best of 3) to win the upper bracket R2. The result will see Team Secret fight against Virtus.Pro tomorrow in the Upper Bracket Finals. As for PSG.LGD, they will be pitted against Evil Geniuses in the 2nd day of the Major competing in the lower bracket R4.
Ninja In Pyjamas lost their upper bracket R2 match against Virtus.Pro, who then continued their fine form in beating TNC Predator.
Despite losing, Ninjas In Pyjamas still has a chance to go through the next round if they beat their opponents, which is still to be determined.
