The two semi-final series before the grand finals were relatively one-sided, with Party Astronauts starting things off by brushing aside CNCS Best CS 16-6 on Mirage and 16-6 on Nuke. The one-sided series was underscored by every single Party Astronauts player going positive while Junjie "Gank88" Lin of Triton was the only player to break even on his team.

Triumph claimed an identical score line against Recon 5, with Brendan "Bwills" Williams leading the way for Triumph as they won Mirage and Dust2 16-6. Despite the series being relatively uncompetitive, Recon 5's stand-in Jeorge "jeorgesnorts" Endicott played well, notching a 1.03 in the 2-0 loss.

With the semi-finals concluded, the grand finals began with Party Astronauts ending the opening half of Mirage in the lead as Josh "PwnAlone" Pigue powered his team to an 11-4 CT-side. After switching sides, Party Astronauts almost found match point straight away as they climbed up to 14-4 after winning the opening T-side pistol round. But, their hopes of a quick and clean T-side were dashed as Bwills held Triumph together with fourteen kills before the team stumbled on round 25, setting the stage for Party Astronauts to take their opponent's map pick with a confident 16-9 win.

Moving onto Inferno, Triumph's troubles continued as Party Astronauts went on the offensive, with Gage "Infinite" Green putting up a vintage performance that was the tip of the spear in a 12-3 T-side for Party Astronauts. After they won their opening CT-side pistol, Triumph finally had the opportunity to strike back after winning a deagle forcebuy, as they went on to win the next five rounds in a row. Unfortunately for Triumph, they slowly ran out of steam as Party Astronauts answered back and evenly split the next six rounds to win Inferno 16-12 and overall win the series 2-0.
