The first map, Train, was a see-saw fight, with 100 Thieves opening a 4-1 lead, Gen.G storming back for an 8-5 edge and 100 Thieves leaping back to a 13-9 benefit. Gen.G then won 5 straight rounds to restore the lead at 14-13, but 100 Thieves took the last three rounds to win the map, 16-14.
On the second map, Overpass, 100 Thieves took control and never ever slow down. They led 11-4 at halftime and cruised to a 16-8 victory to clinch the match.
All five 100 Thieves gamers ended up with a favorable kill-death differential, let by rifler Justin “jks” Savage at plus-13.
