Climbing up the ladder, it was another clash of the titans between the two chinese teams in the consolidation final. Despite losing to VG.CyberZen the day before, TYLOO seem to have shook off that defeat with a 12-3 CT lead on Train in the first half. That was not the case as Bin "Savage" Liu's squad did the same after the swap over, claiming thirteen rounds to take the first map 16-13 and only giving up one round to the enemy.
The next map was a marathon with Cache going into quadruple overtime as VG.CyberZen failed to put an end to it with 3 match points at 15-12 initially. Both teams traded rounds after rounds involving mistakes, clutches and different plays from all sides. Eventually the 69 rounds finally came to end with TyLoo breaking through with the 36-33 win to equalize the series at 1-1.
The final map came down to Cobblestone and was neck to neck with TYLOO managing to lead with an additional round at half time. The chance of an another upset from VG.CyberZen slump down to zero as TYLOO proved to be too strong once they got their gears rolling again on the Terrorist side, taking the map 16-9 convincingly and the series.

After achieving one of their objectives at securing their spot at the next major qualifier, the rise of TYLOO continued in the Grand final against the Australians. Many favoured Renegades to win due to their expectation of a weaken and fatigued TYLOO who had been playing all day. That did not occur as the Chinese team's determination and persistence to win prevailed.
Despite many opportunites for Renegades to take it 2-0 their way, Justin "jks" Savage' side were punished severely on rounds they had the advantage on including 2v1 situations. After playing for roughly twelve hours straight, Captain Ke "captainMo" Liu's TYLOO earned themselves $30,000 for first place and a higher seed at the next major qualifier.
