Next map turned out to be de_dust_se, and Area51 contrinued strong play on the non-popular maps after their de_aztec_se win in the upper bracket final, as TD had no answer to their strong play, which saw them win 16-2 after a 9-0 lead.
51 continued strong play on de_nuke_ve, where they faced close rounds as defenders but would wound up winning twelve unanswered rounds, with Keven "AZK" Lariviere and Philippe "PEX" Olivier-Crepin unable to get a kill on the scoreboard in the first eleven.
Team Dynamic went down 1-14 in the first half, setting up a Mount Everest-like mountain to climb in the second half. Dynamic could only muster six rounds though, as Friesen led his team to a 16-7 win, and the first ESEA CS:GO championship. Broken tag
