TyLoo secured a place at the SL i-League StarSeries Season 2 Finals with a semi-final win over MVP project, while the Koreans defeated Athletico BH in the third-place decider for the third China spot.
The uprising Australian roster secured the first map, Mirage (TYLOO's pick), with a 10-round Terrorist side, but the Chinese dominated Dust2 and Train with 16-5 and 16-2 scorelines, respectively.

MVP Project had already been waiting in the third-place decider, which kicked off on Nuke. Athletico's impregnable 11-1 CT side gave them the initial map, but the Korean side were able to close out Train after 11-4 as Terrorists, followed by a comeback attempt from Stuart "sonic" Rayner and company.
Cobblestone decided the outcome of the series, and it was MVP Project who put in 12 rounds on the T side and conquered the last spot at 16-12.
