For the first time in ESWC history, a team win the ESWC two years in a row.
After a hard struggle to even get to the finals, MYM has if nothing else shown that they deserved to be here. The final ended up being decided on de_tuscan, with MYM up 15-6, and looking like they'd have an easy win, but e-STRO felt otherwise. In an amazing comeback e-STRO got back to 13-15 before finally giving up a round. This leaves MYM as the first team to ever win two consecutive ESWC titles, a feat that might stand for a long time.

1. MYM – $40.000
2. e-STRO – $25.000
