The last match of the day on the A-stream had Outsiders going head to head with BIG. Unsurprisingly, the map pick for this Bo1 fell upon Dust2, perhaps the most comfortable pick for both teams.
BIG started the T-side on a roll, taking the first seven rounds of the half so convincingly that they forced their opponents to save time after time. After breaking the Germans' long streak, the Outsiders went on a small one of their own to once again make it a competitive game. When the half came to a close it was the Germans of BIG that were sitting on a monstrous 11-4 lead.
BIG found match point after winning four rounds in a row to start the second half. The CIS-squad did stop the streak and picked up four more rounds for themselves, but did not manage more than that as BIG closed out the game at 16-8.
