SEA: A reverse sweep in the finals
It was a tough call in the SEA Qualifiers, but Fnatic eventually finished in first place. The squad surrounding Djardel 'DJ' Mampusti went straight through the Upper Bracket and won each of their series. They defeated Omega Esports, OB Esports x Neon and TNC Predator along the way.
The latter were not ready to give up that easy and challenged Fnatic for a revenge in the Grand Finals after fighting through the Lower Bracket. Fnatic could defeat them a second time, winning the finals with a close 3-2. TNC were initially leading 2-0 but were not able to prevent a reverse sweep.
The series also featured this unfortunate clip where a roaming Centaur creep took it upon himself to ruin TNC's day.
NA: Undying crush their opponents
In the North American region, things looked a lot cleaner. The winning team Undying did not drop a single game in the Qualifiers. They beat The Cut, Black n Yellow and 4 Zoomers 2-0 each. The latter then faced them again in the Grand Finals, but Undying pulled of another flawless victory with a 3-0 score.
