Both the Finale match-ups were intense going down to a decider. HelixSquad were able to attain an early victory by seizing Mirage by a score of ‘16-12’. MBTbaeters were quite collected under pressure as they equalised the series ‘1-1’ by winning on Train.

The final match on Overpass was close witnessing a sensational comeback by MBTbaeters as they won by a score of ‘16-13’ to take the series ‘2-1’, after going down in their opening map.

GRLPWR were also quite resilient as they won on Overpass but a comeback by Ponyos on Nuke put them in a tough spot. The decider took place on Vertigo where GRLPWR were able to turn things around once again and walk away with the series, ‘2-1’.

Chinese Qualifier

The Open Qualifier witnessed participation from only six teams, who played in a single elimination bracket where all the matches were a best-of-three series.

While on the other side Zlypw were able to defeat Dear Seasons by a score of ‘16-8’ & ‘16-11’ on Mirage & Inferno, respectively.
