Game 1: Trust Gaming 2-1 MnM Gaming BLX
Maps: Border (7-5), Clubhouse (4-6), Coastline (6-1)
Trust Gaming: Snuf, Avaiche, Deapek, Leonski and Quadzy
MnM: Craxan, Fippsi, imEdd, Kabouter and SoulSeekeR
Going into this match with some rivalry between former teammates, this matchup promised to be the match of the night. Starting off on Border, picked by MnM Gaming, the two teams showed they were equal matches as the game was pushed to overtime, where Trust Gaming eventually won two rounds to take the map.
The map pick of Clubhouse did not go in Trust’s favour as MnM came out on top having a clear lead throughout Clubhouse, bringing us to a third map.
Not able to keep the momentum from the first round win and the previous map win, MnM lost Coastline to the hands of Trust, who swiftly won 6 rounds in a row to take the series.
Game 2: Flash Point 2-0 Auxilium
Maps: Border (6-0), Consulate (6-4), Bank (not played)
Flash Point: Dark, HzDef, Scorpz, Sejinex and TigerB

The matchup between Flashpoint and Auxilium was a treat for Flashpoint fans. Starting on defense on the first map Border, Flashpoint banned IQ and Maestro while Auxilium, who started on attack, decided to come with a target ban of Clash and Ying. Even with these target bans, though, Auxilium found themselves stunned after losing to Flashpoint 6-0.
Despite the devastating lost of the first map, Auxilium fought back on Consulate. Flashpoint started on attack this time, and banned IQ and Maestro again, while Auxilium banned Blackbeard and Clash. However, Flashpoint had the upper hand and closed out the map to claim victory.
