On the second day of the event, Evil Geniuses were one map away from a group stage elimination, requiring a 3-0 sweep over OpTic Gaming to reach the playoffs. Having pulled it off, eliminating the defending world champions, EG swept aside Team Vitality and Lightning Pandas to reach the winner bracket semi-finals.

Their opponent their, Team Envy, would be their most challenging of the bracket so far. Envy’s own run had seen them dispatch FaZe Clan and Ghost Gaming, and they came into the series against Evil Geniuses hot.

Having taken the opening Hardpoint, Envy also claimed the first Search and Destroy, putting them just one map from victory. A tight Capture the Flag went all the way to overtime, but Evil Geniuses were able to secure it to stay alive in the series.

The second Hardpoint, on Gibraltar, was another back-and-forth affair, but in the final minute EG were able to pull away to force a fifth game, London Docks Search and Destroy. The teams traded rounds for the majority of the game, but a 1v1 win for captain Patrick ‘Aches’ Price clinched it for EG at 6-4.
