The first map, Train (13-16), saw André “BARBARR” Möller’s and his teammates take the lead in the series with a hard-fought victory. It was Syman’s first map pick so the losing team had all the advantage in the early rounds before X6tence’s Nicolas “Plopski” Gonzales Zamora used a 30-bomb to close the map.
The next map was picked by X6tence after removing Cache off the list. In Mirage (19-16), Syman bloomed in the late rounds to lock down the map as they managed to come back from a 5-15 deficit with the help of Sanzhar “neaLaN” Ishkakov.
The conclusion of the series all went down to Inferno (13-16), the decider match after Syman and X6tence removed Overpass and Dust2 respectively. Starting the game with a slow-burn team fight, Syman went into the break with a narrow one-round lead after overcoming a 3-6 deficit.
