When it was all said and done both LA-based squads made the cut with Team Diverge falling behind them and rounding out the Top 5.

It was Atlanta FaZe all the way in the second half of the semifinals. While they didn’t come away with a win in the series, their kills and placements secured them the top spot by a large margin.
This was largely due to Biffle, whose 43 kills overall led the entire group, with his teammate Booya sporting the second-highest number of eliminations at 23.

The final spot in Group B was decided by only half a point, but Team GOATS snuck in after the placement multipliers were applied.

ScummN had a huge day and led his team with 45 kills as they locked up the $30,000 first-place prize.
New York Subliners and Atlanta FaZe rounded out the top four and also took home an additional $15,000 and $10,000 for their respective efforts.
