ALTERNATE aTTaX dominated the first stage, conceding only one out of 14 maps in the process. EURONICS followed in second place with a 10-4 score, while PANTHERS and BLUEJAYS each had eight wins to their name to complete the double-elimination playoffs bracket, which was played online on August 11-12.
After PANTHERS beat BLUEJAYS in the lower bracket final, the consolidation final saw EURONICS grab their second 2-1 win over Dustin "DuDe" Großmann's team, earning another chance to take down the favorites.
But their second attempt ended just as it had the first time, as after the two teams exchanged close affairs on Mirage and Overpass, ALTERNATE aTTaX swept their opponents with a 16-5 triumph on Inferno to end the series 2-1 and secure the title.
