The Grand Finals
In the ban phase, the Mongolian side w2c chose to play on Dust 2, while the Philippine-based squad went for Inferno as their pick. Nuke was left as the decider map for the series.
On Dust 2, Bren Esports had a hard time handling the CT side as w2c executed on the bomb sites with absolute precision. However, in the second half of the map, the Philippine side showed resilience and displayed multiple clutch plays in order to survive the match and win the first map, 16-14.
Meanwhile, Bren Esports and w2c on Inferno had a closer match, with both sides duking it out throughout the first half. However, the Filipinos edged them out to obtain a standard 9-6 lead on their CT side at the end of the first half.
In the second half, the Mongolians managed to close out Bren’s advantage and tie it up in the 20th and 26th rounds, but the Philippine-based squad was able to exert enough effort in order to close out the map, 16-13, and win the series with a 2-0 clean sweep.
