The final game at the Major saw mousesports face MIBR, with both teams looking for their first win at the tournament as they faced on Dust2. The map looked to start off well for mousesports, taking the pistol and following two rounds on their CT-side, but only being able to get two more gun rounds in that first half proved to be at their detriment with MIBR going in as 10-5 leaders. The second half was worse for the Europeans, only taking one round as MIBR took the game 16-6.
