The stage also saw strong showings from Team Liquid and G2.iG, securing vital positions for the playoffs.

Dramatic Playoffs and Lower Bracket Comeback

They overcame formidable opponents like Team Liquid and OG and avenged their earlier loss to Tundra Esports with a commanding 2-0 sweep in the Lower Bracket Final.


Grand Final Showdown: Team Falcons vs. BetBoom Team

Team Falcons quickly dispelled any doubts about their championship credentials, rallying from an early deficit in the first game to secure a lead.
