Royal Never Give Up made their way into the finals by defeating Newbee and Invictus Gaming. There, they met Neon Esports who posed no threat to RNG's victory, though. The Chinese outfit bested the Flilipinos 3-0, thereby qualifying for Mad Moon.
After defeating Team Anvorgesa, Infamous went on to take on paiN Gaming in the semifinals of the American division. paiN, however, was disqualified from the tournament after refusing to accept a coin toss as a means to determine the server choice, and not joining the lobby on time.

In the finals, the team around Dominik 'Black^' Reitmeier faced J.Storm. The Peru-based side conceded the first map to their opponents but staged an impressive comeback by taking all three maps thereafter.

Fans voted their MVPs
Just like in the rounds before, the fans could vote for their MVPs on the WePlay! website. The community determined the MVP of each respective region. Roman 'Resolut1on' Fominok from J.Storm won the MVP election in the Americas, RNG's Du 'Monet' Peng in the Asian regions. Both players are awarded $5,000 on top of their prize money.
The MVP vote will also be part of the Mad Moon tournament. There, the voting is divided by roles. The best core as well as the best support will be given $10,000 each for their performance.
