The second big surprise of this weeks cup was the placement of Virtus.Pro, who were handled as one of the favourites to take home the win. But after losing to the up-and-coming swedish team Team Property BB2, they came in last. Since they didn't participate last week, they are not even part of the top ten on the Seasonal Ranking at the moment.
Contrary to all the upsets, there was not only one team pun intended able to repeat the promising performances, they recently showed: Team One kicked Fnatic out off the tournament, and continued flawless their way into the finals. There they took on the other team that starts to reveal their full potential: Team Empire arguably had the tougher way to the finals, but they did not make it look hard against 4FC and aAa even though they played with Andrey ' alwayswannafly' Bondarenko as a stand-in.
In the finals the Russian came off to a great start in both early games, going up 4-0 in the second one before the creeps even spawned. Since they were able to expand their lead, Empire closed the series with a convincing 2-0 victory and qualified themselves to the groupstages. There they will get to face the three invitees The Alliance, Natus Vincere and Mousesports aswell as last weeks winner Flip.Sid3, who might however participate with their new potential line-up.
