It was not easy for the champion team to get themselves to the grand final. The team was the “C” group champion and met See You Soon in the knockout stage and then faced off Geek Fam ID in the upper-bracket semi. Both the scoreline was 3-1 and then, the team moved to the upper-bracket final where the runner-up was waiting to greet them.

ONIC looked like a whole different team in the first round. The performance gap was easily noticeable. AP.Bren won the first round after a quick game but the next round was a comeback match for ONIC. Thus, while the final was 1-1 after the first two rounds, AP.Bren took the next two games consecutively to push the opponent ONIC to the edge of falling from the match.
