After dropping down to EHOME in the quarterfinals, CyberZen made a heroic comeback by fighting through the Lower Bracket and made it all the way into the Grand Finals where they faced EHOME once again, in an all-out intense Finale that doubled up as a revenge match.
D13 was the first team that CyberZen made quick work off and moved on to face Flash Gaming, who were surprisingly taken care of without any hassle, going down on Mirage and Dust 2 by a score of ‘16-6’ and ‘16-7’, respectively.
The next two teams were quite the challenge for CyberZen as they defeated both 5Power Gaming and MVP.PK by a series score of ‘2-1’ and made it to the Grand Finals.
The revenge match was a clean sweep for CyberZen who were prepared and determined to get the quarterfinal revenge. EHOME were not able to win anything apart from the one game advantage that they held as they made their way through the Upper Bracket.
But the next three games were all won by CyberZen in succession in Dust 2, Inferno & Mirage with scores of ‘16-5’, ‘16-12’ & ‘16-2’, respectively.
With this, CyberZen has made their way onto the Main Event and will be competing against the 15 other participants on 30th March in Shanghai.
