Ghosts had a very strong start to the match, with them taking Lijang very quickly. They destroyed Immortals on Lijang, barely letting Immortals take the point at all. In one map, Ghosts won the point 100-0.
Despite the very strong first map showing, Ghost couldn't seem to take advantage of the momentum they had.
Immortals took a very close Dorado after having to fight tooth and nail for the final point, which was made possible by a few clutch kills from Grimreality.
The second Nepal map was very much a back-and-forth match. At first, Ghost's Mykl came out strong, able to hold Immortals off for a very long time thanks to his clutch Tracer plays, including a big triple-kill Pulse Bomb.
However, Immortals was able to take the map thanks to Agilities' Dragon Blade at the last moment. His double kill took out the final two defending Ghost players to clear the point in Overtime and take the map for Immortals.
In the end, Immortals was able to hold off Ghost to take the NGE Winter Premiere championship title, taking out Ghosts, 3-1.
