As action got underway, two teams were quickly knocked out of the running. Both Andbox along with NRG were eliminated without having won a map. Meanwhile, it was Immortals who blitzed through the upper bracket, taking down XSET, Gen.G, and Luminosity on their path to the Grand Finals. There they would meet Sentinels who had already been put through the wringer. Having lost their first matchup, Sentinels had to win four consecutive series to complete the lower bracket run. In the ultimate rebound, they pulled it off and took out Immortals 3-1 in the closing showdown to cement their place atop NA.

On the European side of things, teams only had to play one match each to lock in their spot at Challengers Stage 2. Some big upsets came through during these matches as a number of huge names were knocekd out by relative underdogs. G2 Esports, Guild Esports, Liquid, and Fnatic’s brand new Valorant team were all taken out of the EU tournament. Instead, it was FunPlus Phoenix, Wave Esports, Ninjas In Pyjamas, and an orgless team in Monkey Business, that closed the show as winners.
