eRa made waves in this tournament by knocking fellow MDL teams Iceberg and BlackOut to the lower bracket. Their final series in the tournament came down to the wire as Mask Off took the early map lead with a dominant victory on Train. eRa would then make the reverse sweep dream a reality as they barely edged out their opponents in two consecutive 16-14 wins on both Nuke and Train.

1. eRa - $1750 in travel reimbursements + free entry to the 10k CHI CS:GO Open
