Millenium, CPH Wolves, Epiphany Bolt and LDLC Blue later qualified for the event.

The group stage draw determined that RCTIC, Orgless, CPH Wolves and LDLC Blue would play in Group A. LDLC White, ENCE, Millenium and Epiphany Bolt would face each other in Group B.

With a loss in the previous match, LDLC White had to win the decider match against Millenium if they still wanted to qualify for the playoff stage. Their de_dust2 game was nearly flawless and the first map's score was 16-1.

Epiphany Bolt nearly managed to snatch the second map of de_inferno but in the end Antoine "to1nou" Pirard & co. prevailed 16-13 and became the fourth and final team to advance to the playoffs.
