EHOME have secured their presence at The Summit after having a second shot at attending. ViCi Gaming had swept through EHOME 3:0 in the Grand Finals of the Chinese Qualifiers and they were knocked to the Lower Bracket finals to face LGD for the second spot.
After a back and forth and intense series of matches, it took all five games to decide on a winner, with EHOME finally becoming victorious after a heavily one-sided game with Chen “Cty” Tianyu having an amazing game on his signature hero Queen of Pain.
EHOME had defeated both TongFu and then Newbee 2:1 to advance to the grand finals originally.
