Sneaky went a staggering 50-21 across the two-map series

Following the withdrawal of FURIA from IEM Beijing-Haidian and subsequent move-up of New England Whalers to the main event, Rebirth soundly defeated Morning Light to claim the newly-available spot in the event's Closed Qualifier.

The MDL side got off to a strong start on Vertigo, book-ending their Terrorist side with five round streaks spearheaded by David "Sneaky" Polster. In between these runs, Morning Light only managed three isolated rounds of their own. The Advanced side managed to notch four rounds on their own T-side after the switch, but ultimately fell to Rebirth 16-7.

Despite the one-sided loss, Morning Light's Jeremy "taiwi" Wang actually out-fragged Sneaky, with the pair notching 28 and 26 kills, respectively.

Recent history more or less repeated itself on Mirage, as Morning Light won four rounds in isolation on their opening Counter-Terrorist half. A pistol win after sides switched saw Rebirth climb to 13-4 before closing out the map 16-9.
