8bit Take 3 BOOYAHs In The Finals

While teams from Bangladesh were eliminated before the finals, the two teams from Nepal who made it into the finals, took the 11th and 12th positions. 8bit kicked things off with a win on the first map, where they were the last team alive in a heal battle. The team managed to continue their momentum, grabbing a second BOOYAH on map number 2. Dominators managed to take a  comfortable 8 kill win on map number 3 while Legendary Noobs also picked up their first win in map number 4. 8bit came back in map number 5 for their 3rd BOOYAH and Team Lava closed out the competition with a win on the last map.
