The second map was a closer affair for both teams, once again ending with mirrored halftime scores at 7-8. Mythic were able to quickly seize control on their CT side of Nuke thanks to a stellar performance from Eric "fl0m" Flom, with the stream team giving up only four more rounds before they closed out their series against Alex "lanhero" Suarez and company.
fl0m ended the second map with 31 frags, putting up 117 ADR to push his team through to the closed qualifier. Mitch "m1tch" Semago put up similar numbers on Overpass for Dignitas, although his 28 kills and 100 ADR were dwarfed by ptr's 124 ADR and 29-8 K-D performance on Inferno.
