Summary of matches yesterday

All of the teams have experienced at least dropping one game in yesterday’s Quarterfinals and Semifinals. In the closed-door matches that occurred, six teams were sent to the loser’s bracket, while Newbee and Evil Geniuses will be having a significantly shorter route to the Grand Finals. Crowd favorite and hometown heroes Clutch Gamers have fallen to Invictus Gaming, and will be facing SEA rivals Team Faceless as a result. Meanwhile, OG experienced an upset by losing to Newbee, making them the next opponent of the victor of the CG versus Faceless matchup.
