After two days of qualifiers, the main tournament started out with all qualified teams being immediately defeated by the invited ones. The big surprise came in the quarterfinals: For Sweet Revenge defeated Team Liquid. The Peruvians, who haven't shown their best performances lately, continued to also eliminate Power Rangers, who knocked out Mousesports previously, and reached the BB grand final for the second time after their sensational victory in June.
Meanwhile the top half of the grid was dominated by Russia. Team Empire, after already having a tough opponent - Sqreen's Squad - in the first round, took revenge against Relax, who beat them in Eizo Cup last week. In the semifinal they were able to overcome roX.KIS, making them the clear favourite in the final after Liquid's early loss. They confirmed their strong shape with a 2:0 win over Revenge.
