Vertigo was up next. Vitality won the pistol rounds once against but OG was quick to bounce back and take the following three rounds to secure a 3-1 lead in the early stages of the map.

On the T side, OG stood no chance against the better team and ZywOo who once again played an impressive map. Vitality won Vertigo 16-9.
