Moon Raccoons were able to show dominant form on their run to the grand final, only dropping one map against beastcoast. Some notable wins against some more household names in the form of Mamba Mode Gaming (MMG), as well as beastcoast, brought Moon Raccoons right to the grand finale.

Pretty Boyz dropped two maps on their way to the grand final, one against Elysium and the other against Renegades. Impressive results for a relatively new team on the scene. They were able to defeat Moon Raccoons in the grand final 2:0, securing themselves the tournament victory.

Mamba Mode Gaming was able to defeat Renegades 2:0 in the third place decider match, securing themselves $1000 for their trouble. We imagine that both of these teams would have been expecting to win an event like this, considering the competition. Both MMG and Renegades must surely be disappointed for not even making it into the finale of this Nerd Street Gamers event.
