Matches and results

The four-way seven points tie:

 


"Eternal Envy(left), Cloud 9's carry"

There was a four-way tie between Na'vi, Power Rangers, Cloud 9 and VP.Polar. It was Beyond the Summit's decision to eliminate Na'vi as they lost all the internal head-to-head matches to the other teams of the tie. Remaining teams of the tie won one game each as well as having lost one game each, thus was the tie further unsolveable with head-to-head results. As for whom will take fourth seed, the choice was given to Team Secret who topped the group at 9 points.

Notable results:

Power Rangers started off the round robins by going 1 - 3 in the first two days, only picking up a game against Balkan Bears Corleone. They then proceed to win against all the other teams in the following days dropping only one game against Team Secret to end up 7-4 with 7 points in the end.

Alliance ended the group 5 - 6, they started off by dropping two games to Kompass and Power Rangers and constantly stayed lower than top 3.

Na'vi lost the final two crucial match against Cloud9 and Virtus Pro.Polar, resulting in their elimination from the top four tie. Virtus.Pro Polar on the other hand took down the group winner Team Secret in their last game, which was the only way for them to advance at that point.
