In the Bravo team there was Aches and Crimsix from Team Complexity, Parasite from Curse Las Vegas, Nadeshot and JKap from Optic Gaming, Merk and Proofy from Envyus, Sharp from team Kaliber and all coached by Hastro from Envyus. These matchups ended with Alpha Team beating Bravo Team 2-1 map count.
In the open bracket , out of the hundreds of teams that were in the open brackets only 4 moved on to the championship bracket.
