Evil Geniuses won two matches in a three-team tiebreaker Sunday to wrap up the Dota Pro Circuit Season 1 North America Upper Division.
The wins, over Undying and then Quincy Crew, gave Evil Geniuses a berth in the DPC Major playoffs -- plus $30,000 and 500 Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) points.
Quincy Crew beat Undying to finish 1-1 in the tiebreaker and land a spot in the DPC Major group stage and earn $28,000 plus 300 DPC points.

SADBOYS defeated both of its foes to take fifth place, Black N Yellow split its matches to claim sixth, and A-Team was relegated to seventh place, which means they join the eighth-place team, 5ManMidas, in dropping to the Lower Division for Season Two.
