In the Open Bracket, Millenium, NRG, and Sigma Gaming, three well-known organizations who were given byes in the first round, were knocked out of the competition. This gave way to the rise of several young and hungry teams who were itching for pro points out in Columbus.

The following teams advanced to the pool play, as they won out of the Open Bracket:

Vanquish (Group D), Get Bronco (Group C), Fully Spaced (Group B), eXtortion (Group A)

The following teams advanced to the Championship Losers Bracket, as they were the top four teams in the Open Losers Bracket:

Vitality, OrbitGG, Avalanche Esports, GeeKs

Despite fighting for the right to be in the group stage yesterday, almost all four open bracket sides got at least one win today against the professional sides. Specifically, Fully Spaced and Get Bronco both grabbed third over teams that were automatically placed into pool play.

The top seven teams finished as expected, but there was a slight shake up with Enigma6 falling in favor of Epsilon Esports.
