Rogue made it to the upper bracket final after beating eUnited on three maps, Train 16-2, Overpass 8-16, and Inferno 16-12.

The match between Rogue and eUnited kicked off on Train, with Rogue taking the first pistol and gun round for an early lead and economic advantage on the CT side. From there on out the first half of the match was an absolute blowout as eUnited had absolutely nothing to do against Rogue's defenses, with the latter taking a 15-0 lead at the half.

After the switch, eUnited managed to take the pistol round and get on board thanks to doubles by Will "dazzLe" Loafman and Michael "dapr" Gulino. It didn't take long for Rogue to close out their rival's map pick, 16-2, with Casper "cadiaN" Møller leading on the scoreboard with 25 frags and 128.4 ADR in the 18 rounds the map lasted.

cadiaN & co. are now in the upper bracket final

Overpass started off better for eUnited, who won the pistol round on the defense, but it quickly turned sour as cadiaN opened the second round up with the Scout, getting two entries before Rogue took the forcebuy. eUnited were able to hold their own defending, however, and after a back-and-forth beginning of the half, were able to close out with a solid four rounds in a row to go ahead 10-5.

eUnited then kept the momentum going with Brandon "Ace" Winn getting the last three kills on B short with the glock to increase their lead by one. After also taking the anti-ecos, eUnited had a 13-5 lead, but Rogue were then able to win the first gun round and keep the match within reach of a comeback. It was ultimately eUnited who, holding on as CTs, were able to push the match to the decider, closing Overpass out, 16-8.

eUnited were unable to complete the comeback on Inferno

Inferno kicked off with eUnited once again taking the lead on the defending side, winning the first three rounds, but Rogue quickly evened it out winning three of their own. Finding exploits in eUnited's defense, Rogue quickly managed to take the lead into the half after winning seven of the following nine rounds for a 10-5 half.

eUnited didn't let the match slip away, though, winning the second pistol round after a play on B, bringing it back to 8-10 into the first gun round. After winning the first gun round, a triple by Hunter "SicK" Mims defending the B site kept Rogue in control, up 12-8, with the economic advantage now going their way. Eventually, Rogue were able to close it out despite giving some rounds up to the attacking side, 16-12.
