However, on Inferno, picked by FaZe, fnatic started to shine. They showed decent performance on the CT side and continued to outperform on the T side, winning the map with a score of 16-10.

The decider was Mirage, and it was a disaster for fnatic. FaZe started the third game on the T side and surprisingly won it 9-6. Fnatic tried to come back, but the European mix denied that attempt, finishing the map 16-9.

FaZe advance to the group final to face Natus Vincere, securing the spot in the playoff, while fnatic fall to the lower bracket to encounter Astralis.
