Team Secret grabbed the championship title at Rainbow Six: Siege Allied Esports Vegas Minor 2019. The win gives Secret an automatic seed for the Six Major Raleigh 2019, which is scheduled for August.

Secret's winning roster includes Matthew "meepeY" Sharples, Leon "LeonGids" Giddens, Bryan "Elemzje" Tebessi, Aku "Fonkers" Seppä, and Daniel "Ferral" Rotheram. The team's win is an interesting story for two reasons.

The first is that days just before the tournament, team member David “ sTiZze” de Castro decided to retire and stop playing Rainbow Six: Siege professionally. With that news, Secret had to sign up Ferral on a trial basis. The only thing going for Secret was that Ferral was once part of Team i don't know, where other members of Secret came from as well.

The second was that, using the words of meepeY himself, the win marked the end of Secret's "revenge tour."

Beginning earlier this year, Secret was considered the top Rainbow Six team. However as the days passed, the team had trouble getting wins. Back in March, Secret lost to MnM Gaming during the ESL Premiership Spring 2019. In April's Pro League Season 9 - Europe, Secret had a really bad showing, ending in Seventh place out of eight teams.

Secret entered the Allied Vegas Minor with no expectation from the fans, but would later prove everyone wrong.

During the Group Stage, Secret's first game was against the Susquehanna Soniqs, which it won 7-1. The team then beat PENTA 7-3 and after that Ninjas in Pyjamas 8-6. The excellent Group Stage performance ensured a spot in the Quarterfinals. Here Secret took on Team oNe eSports and won the match 2-0.

During the Semifinals, Secret went head-to-head against Team Liquid. Secret dominated the match, winning the first game on the Consulate map 7-2. The second game was played on Clubhouse, and Secret again won 7-4.

The Finals featured Secret versus another Europe team in LeStream Esport. Secret has always been known for the Clubhouse map and they took it 7-5. The second game was the Border map and LeStream won in overtime. Consulate was used again as the map for the third game, and this match went the distance. Secret did not let it go this time, and won in overtime.

With a new team and a win, all eyes are likely to be on Secret for what could possibly one of grandest stages in Rainbow Six: Siege.
