There were eight teams competing, four of them were directly invited – Team Kinguin, The Final Tribe, Kingdra and Singularity Esports, while OG, Wind and Rain, BlinkPool and Alliance made it through the open qualifiers. As in other regions, they competed in a single round-robin group, from which top four teams advanced to the double-elimination playoffs bracket with best-of-three series and best-of-five finals. OG finished the group stage without a single loss, and then they defeated Team Kinguin (2-0) in the semifinals and outplayed Wind and Rain twice – in the winners’ finals and in the grand finals.
