The game between NRG and Sentinels and Evil Geniuses would be decided by Ascent, with one team advancing to face FaZe Clan in the upper bracket, the other waiting to face either Sentinels or Evil Geniuses. In the second half, 100 Thieves held off a strong defense and won six of the last seven rounds to win the 13-11 series.
100 Thieves will advance to face FaZe in the upper bracket, after being eliminated in the Stage Two Challengers main event. NRG, however, will fight for their tournament lives in the lower bracket.
