NRG made quick work of Swole Patrol in just two maps. Their dominant 14-1 first half on  their T-side of Overpass led to an eventual 16-7 finish in map one. As the two transitioned over to Cache, Swole Patrol managed to compose themselves enough to take a slight 8-7 lead to start things off. Not to be outdone, NRG went on a nine round tear to close out the map and series 16-9.

The clash between Luminosity and Rogue was a stark contrast from NRG's series, as it went the full three map distance. An empowered Rogue would set the tone by claiming Inferno in a straightforward 16-6 scoreline, but Luminosity quickly flipped the script.

The Brazilians made Mirage a mirror image of the prior map, though this time, in their favor 16-9. The final map of Overpass started with a balanced 7-8 half for Rogue, but unable to muster the same fervor from map one, they would eventually fall to their EPL brethren 10-16.

compLexity managed to claim their spot in the semifinals without even lifting a finger, as they were granted direct access to the deeper region of the bracket following OpTic's forfeit of their series.

No statements have been made by the organization as of yet, but it is suspected that imminent roster shifts within the team were the primary factor in their decision.
