They wiped through Mango Manians, Burden United and Pries before finding their place in the grand finals. Although the team had some instability just prior to the event, having lost Roman “Resolut1on” Fominok to Digital Chaos on January 4th, Lozovoi “fn” Rostislav stepped in to the team with the perfect synergy needed.
London Conspiracy had been on the rise recently with strong performances and multiple wins. The Swedish lineup swept through YeS and COOKISS before dropping a match against Ad Finem. Their 2:1 victory over the Greek squad advanced them to the grand finals to face the undefeated Team Empire.
