Agents Rising Recap
The matches were best-of-three maps with the exception of the best-of-five losers and grand final, which had each round count as a point with a maximum of two points earned per map. If a tie resulted, there would be a single control point in a king-of-the-hill map to be the deciding factor.
Through the two day tournament, teams battled it out for the $10,000 prize pool that the top three teams would receive a take-home share. Here are the results of the semifinals, finals and grand final:
- Gale Force eSports won 4-2 against Colorado Clutch
- Cloud9 won 4-0 against Team Liquid
- Team Liquid won 7-5 against Gale Force eSports
- Cloud9 won 6-3 against Team Liquid
