The first map was Overpass, which was chosen by Vitality. Both halves couldn’t define a clear leader (7-8, 8-7), so the teams had to play in the overtime — 15-15. At the end, NRG won over the French five in the additional rounds and finished the map 25-23 in their favour. Vincent "Brehze" Cayonte was the most valuable player from the American side, as he had 52-30 K-D, 1.51 HLTV KDR, and 101.3 ADR.

The second map’s MVP was Ethan "Ethan" Arnold: 29-15 K-D, 1.64 HLTV KDR, 97.8 ADR.
