MAD Lions, MIBR top Flashpoint 1 group standings; playoff matches determined
The No. 1 playoff seed was clinched by MAD Lions, who held a flawless record in Phase 2 after notching series wins over Chaos, c0ntact, and FunPlus Phoenix without dropping a map to double their points from Phase 1.
MIBR were able to tie the Danish roster in points with a win over Gen.G in the Group C grand final, but the tiebreaker went the way of MAD Lions as a result of a higher total map win percentage across the two phases of play.
HAVU, meanwhile, inched out a third place finish over their final opponent from Phase 2 in the form of Cloud9 as a result of a higher match win percentage as the tiebreaker, calculated by the number of total best-of-three series won by the number of series played.
Damian "daps" Steele's men were assured a fifth place finish regardless of their result against MIBR as they had ended Phase 1 with 30 points to their name, with the 50 points from a second place finish being enough to put them above Chaos, Orgless, and FunPlus Phoenix and avoid a four-way tiebreaker.
Joshua "steel" Nissan and company took home the sixth seed by boasting a higher match win percentage over their opposition, while FunPlus Phoenix's default loss in Phase 1 came back to haunt them as they lost a tiebreaker against Orgless, leaving them as the lowest-seeded team heading into the playoffs.
The final standings for Phase 1 and Phase 2 according to the playoffs points are as follows:
