Things took a surprising turn in the Round of 16, however, as Alexander "zander" Dituri helped to lead top ten Advanced side Counter Nature over Kaleb "moose" Jayne and Triumph in a 16-14 match on Inferno. MDL sides Kinship and a Vireo.pro mix also had scares against lower-tier competition in the round, but managed to emerge victorious.

Counter Nature continued their upset streak in the quarterfinals, and this time it was David "Delta9" Shafer and Brody "BeaKie" Kelly who combined to topple Kinship 16-14 on Mirage. Meanwhile, Vireo.pro came close to achieving an upset of their own, as they narrowly lost to Yeah 16-13 on Inferno. The other two matches in the round saw RBG and paiN achieve relatively straightforward wins over Russian Canadians and Eclipse, respectively.
