Held as part of the Pozna? Game Arena fair, the tournament featured the top four teams of the online season, who duked it out for the first prize of approximately $8,000.
AGO, who had topped the table during the regular season with a 13-1 record, looked well off the pace in their semi-final bout against PACT, who ran out 2-0 victors following two 16-7 wins. The other match went according to script as Kinguin cruised to a 2-0 success over Izako Boars, who were attending their first event with Bartosz "Hyper" Wolny as a coach.
Overpass, PACT's map pick, kicked off the series, and it was a back-and-forth affair, with Kinguin securing the victory in the 29th round thanks to a star performance from Karol "rallen" Rodowicz (1.55 rating, 105 ADR). Things were much more straightforward for Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas's troops on Cache as they strolled to an 11-4 lead on the Terrorist side before wrapping things up in the second half with a convincing CT display,
