Epsilon defeat Nemiga to qualify for Charleroi Esports
The international squad progressed to the grand final after beating AVEZ 2-0 in the semi-final, with Nils "k1to" Gruhne notably putting up an incredible 1.90 rating across the series. Joining Epsilon in the grand final was Nemiga, who took down Polish side Izako Boars 2-1 in the other semi-final.
