The first two days of the competition saw CIS’s 1218 take the win in the EMEA division, beating out The Real Deal by 7 points in the end. In Asia, or South Asia to be exact, the battle was heated with both Godlike and TSM-Entity going blow for blow till the final game of the tournament. While TSM-Entity were overall more consistent and picked up way more kills than other team in the tournament, Godlike were able to win 4 of the 12 matches which were played across 2 days. 

In the final game of the series, Godlike pulled out a 15 kill chicken dinner, that allowed their team to finish the competition 1 point ahead of TSM-Entity. TSM’s ZGod kept things close by being the sole survivor and getting some clutch kills and placement points in the end, but it wasn’t enough. The top 8 teams from both regions were allowed to choose the charity where the money would be donated.
