Six Major 2020 NA featured TSM, Oxygen Esports, Spacestation Gaming, and DarkZero Esports. The participants fought for a $62,500 first-place award.
The event started with the encounter between the “gold medalist” of US Division Stage 2 (DarkZero Esports) and the qualifier winner (Spacestation Gaming), which ended in the triumph of Spacestation Gaming. Keeping good performance, these guys managed to make it into the grand final and even had beaten the future champion, TSM, in the process. The winners-to-be, in their turn, fell to the lower bracket to play against DarkZero and compete for the spot in the grand final. After a brilliant performance, TSM took the lead and moved forward to the grand final.
Being one of the biggest favorites in the tournament and having one map advantage, SSG underestimated their opponents when meeting them in the decisive battle and let their guard down. Driven by a desire to win back after a failure in the summer series, TSM capitalized on the situation and snatched victory from their opponents.
The distribution of prizes is as follows:
