The first two quarterfinals involved a quick game between OpTic and Renegades, and a drawn-out match between BIG and ENCE. OpTic swept Renegades in two maps, Dust II and Inferno, while BIG went the distance with ENCE in three. Despite Johannes “tabseN” Wodarz doing work for the German side, ENCE closed it out by having solid T sides on Nuke and Train.

The latter quarterfinals had two tight matches, even though they were 2-0 sweeps. Vega took down Fragsters on Dust II and Cache, with Leonid “chopper” Vishnyakov topping the scoreboard at 26 kills per map and 101.0 average damage per round. The last quarterfinal involved NRG edging out North in two intense maps. Ethan “nathE” Arnold and Vincent “Brehze” Cayonte led the charge by getting over 25 kills per map.
