The Los Angeles Gladiators lead 3-0 thanks to taking on Ilios (2-1), Eichenwalde (3-1), and Watchpoint: Gibraltar (4-3). Shock was able to rise to claim the next two maps: New Queen Street (1-0) and Lijiang Tower (2-0), but the Gladiators won the decisive map of Dorado (5-4). Kim “Shu” Jin-seo of Gladiators was selected to be the MVP of the grand finals.
