Aleksandar ” jayzaR ” Zarkovic and his team could easily shock the Finns and line up a solid 16-7 victory in the inferno, a map that worked really well earlier in the tournament. In the next match against the Slovakian top team HellRaisers, both teams were aiming for a ticket to the quarterfinals. It became a tight game but Hellraisers could end up winning by 16-11 on Cache. Iwku where facing Space Soldiers in the group’s last chance to reach the quarter finals, but the clatch ended in a loss, 7-16.

The other semi-final was a Balkan derby between Space Soldiers and, two teams who had raised eyebrows the day before while defeating Danish opposition.

The grand final began with a keenly-contested game on inferno, where HellRaisers were able to take the victory only after a double overtime.
