After the side switching, Gambit continued to put pressure on the opponent, thereby increasing its lead. This allowed the team to finally break NAVI, and at the same time win the first map with a score of 16: 7.

On Mirage, the first half developed in a scenario similar to the first map, although here NAVI was already able to provide a minimal lead before switching sides. But Gambit showed a phenomenal defense again, thus securing a confident ending - 16:11.
