The ROG MASTERS Regional Final EMEA took place over just two days, with four quarterfinal matches on Day 1 followed by the semifinals and Grand Final on Day 2. Team Empire secured their spot early in the day, after winning their semifinal match against Team Kinguin*. Empire won 2-0, but both games stretched well into the late-game even though Empire dominated in both.

This event was Empire's first LAN in the post-TI7 season, and now they've added the Global Grand Final in Kuala Lumpur to that list.
Gang Squad* played the second semifinal of the day against Double Dimension* and it was quite the action-packed match. HellRaisers took the first win of the series, but PENTA turned things around and reverse-swept the series.
In Game 3, PENTA's star player was Oliver 'Skiter' Lepko, who landed some particularly beautiful Chronospheres.
