There was a three-way tie between Zath “Zath” Zen, “Betyow”, and “Dawgbun” for the eighth and last available position to the finals. Ultimately, Zath came out on top due to better average placements in the playoffs.

“There’s a lot of really good players that made it,” second-placed “Chokegod” said on being asked about the top eight players in a post-match interview. “I am really glad that Joseph and Betyow didn’t make it. They are obviously really good people who I would have loved to meet in the finals. They are also extremely good players but I don’t think the lobby is a lot weaker without them.”

The 24 qualified players for the playoffs were divided into three groups of eight players each. All players played 12 matches in their own group to earn points. In the end, the points from all groups were tallied to decide the top eight players.

Here are the group-wise results of the playoffs:
