Recon 5's only Premier competition in the open qualifier were Oceanus and Rise. The former lost their third match in thirty rounds to Motiv8 after receiving a first-round bye. "Savir" led all players with 29 kills, while Cedric "Melio" Perrault was close behind with 28 frags of his own.
Rise were also granted a free pass in the first round, but then dropped Dust2 16-10 against VCU. Cody "Domorin" Lutzel led the lobby with 24 kills, but VCU still pulled out the decisive win, led by 23 frags from "Wolfeye". Green Tea Party, who joined Recon 5 in the grand final, also featured a number of ESEA Premier players including former Oceanus member Wayne "castro" Einarsson, as well as Devin "AtomiK" Ferrell and Reece "Wilky" Wilkerson from ImPerium.
Recon 5 defeated Xion, Mucho Ego Swing, UYU, and Global to reach the grand final, while Green Tea Party bested UNH, morning wood, X13, and Motiv8 to join them.
In that grand final it was all Recon 5, who claimed comfortable 16-10 and 16-8 wins to advance to the Mythic Spring Cup. Jeff "RZU" Ngo led the victors with 50 kills in the series, while Wilky led Green Tea Party with 42 frags as Green Tea Party were cast overboard and out of the event at the final hurdle.
