Aurora had a strong start in the Semi-Finals, winning the first map against Monte with a close score of 13:10 on Anubis. However, their dreams of advancing further were shattered as Monte made a comeback, sweeping them on Nuke and Ancient. Despite a few struggles from DemQQ, Monte's roster performed exceptionally well, securing their spot in the Grand Final.
In the match between FURIA and Virtus.pro, FURIA managed to take the first map, but Virtus.pro fought back and completed a reverse sweep to claim victory.
