effys and the rest of LiViD were better than RBG, having no problems against the majority-Canadian and taking a 2-0 victory. New Identity, playing with Maxim "wippie" Shepelev in place of Collin "wrath" McSweegan, lost Overpass to Mythic, but were then able to reverse-sweep the stream team and move into the 1-1 pool.

In the third round, Sharks played Rap Gang for one of the two high seeds, where the Brazilian squad obliterated Kevin "4pack" Przypasniak and co. to finish the Pinnacle Cup with a 3-0 result. ATK versus Riot Squad was another one-sided match in the 2-0 pool, as despite Jonathan "Jonji" Carey's best efforts, his team fell to the South African/American side.
