The Perfect World Masters Grand Final teams are set after today's final two lower bracket matches. In tomorrow's best-of-five, cn Vici Gaming will get another crack at beating their upper bracket final opponents, cn Newbee.

The day started with an (almost) tilt-free match between cn LGD.Forever Young and us compLexity Gaming. coL took an early series lead thanks to a Drow Ranger centric draft that allowed them to put on the pressure early. us David 'Moo' Hull's Tidehunter was their tanky frontliner and he was obviously a big source of frustration for LFY.

Tidehunter went ignored in the second game's draft LFY took an almost equally fast win to tie things up, using cn Xie 'Super!' Junhao's Dragon Knight to both frontline and push down towers. In Game 3, coL gave their all to try to come out on top but their cores were significantly behind in both levels and farm. LFY took the series winand moved on.

The final boss that stood between LFY and the Grand Final match was Vici Gaming, but VG proved too much to handle. The match lasted a mere 46 minutes in total game time. After suffering a crushing defeat in the first game, even an early lead in the second game wasn't enough to give LFY hope when VG started to take over around the 14 minute mark.

The final match of The Perfect World Masters will be played tomorrow starting at 9:00 CET. It will be a best-of-five between Vici Gaming and Newbee for the championship. This will be Newbee's first Grand Final since TI7 and VG's second Grand Final this season. Neither team has won a Major or Minor yet.
