Entity had a great run in the tournament; they never let a single team take more than 10 rounds to their name, except Shooting Monkeys who made it to a close 14-16 match on Nuke. They were the fan favourites to win this tournament and who wouldn’t say it owing to their previous achievements and dominating play style. Entity boasted the best aimsters the country could produce, and this was one of the deciding factors that gave them an edge over the other teams. They had a really good map pool and well planned executes and this gave them the edge they needed for the tournament.
Entity has time and again proven that cobblestone is one of their strongest maps. While they boast a massive map pool and are a thorn in the enemy's side regardless of the map, there are some maps where they are just absolutely invincible. They obliterated Eternal and Brutality with scores of 16-4 and 16-5 respectively, both on cobblestone. It's not just this tournament, they dominated every time they played Cobblestone in the last couple of tournaments that they have attended. While some teams have managed to make them sweat on Mirage a couple of times, they still haven't lost a map.
Shooting Monkeys came to the limelight again after a long absence. They had been losing and getting out of tournaments early, but this time we got to see them play the finals. The last time we saw them in a top level of a tournament in the COBX Indian Esports Championship, so we can say it’s been quite a time. But plenty of mistakes were made by them in the finals, they had no execute for the Train map and choked in every full buy round. Also, their map VETO never gave them an advantage in the finals.
Eternal, a team that had (disbanded right now) one of the most stable rosters fell out as antidote, their primary awper stepped down from the roster due to some personal problems. Eternal had to play with a stand-in. This made a hell of a difference between their performance with and without antidote. They lost 12-16 to SM and 4-16 to Entity.
