On Inferno, Tricked got the early advantage with their 5-0 lead on the CT side. Lucas “Bubzkji” Andersen scored double-digit kills with his multi-frag rounds.

Xsepower wasted Tricked’s two bomb plants and exhausted their finances, giving Inferno to ForZe.
ForZe entered the second map, Vertigo, with the same momentum as the first map. Jenya “FL1T” Lebedev executed his quad kill in the opening round of their CT half, and Xsepower topped it up with another triple kill. However, Tricked responded with their newfound dynamics. Bubzkji earned a pistol round victory for the team with a USP-S triple kill. ForZe tried to crush the team’s CT economy to achieve a 12-12 score but Tricked didn’t yield. An overtime match gave Tricked its 16-14 victory.
Train then became the concluding map of the series. Tricked celebrated an early success with the first two rounds, but FL1T surprised them with a Krieg triple kill. ForZe stayed ahead of Tricked until the score went to 8-7. ForZe managed to execute an impressive CT pistol round to survive Tricked’s responses. A 2v2 situation concluded the series when Frederik “acoR” Gyldstrand failed to plant last-minute bombs.
