Invictus was the only Indian team this time around who were able to proceed onto the Semifinals of the qualifier with both 2ez Gaming and Entity falling in the Round of 16 against FearTheReaper and Xiphos, respectively.
Invictus was also stopped on its way to the Finals by Pakistani team Portal Esports. Portal showed some really great discipline keeping the Invictus squad quiet and in-order as they went on to beat them by a series score of ‘2-1’.
FearTheReaper were a force to reckon with as they beat their opponents left and right to reach the finals where they took an easy ‘2-0’ victory against Portal Esports.
