The Danes, despite the recent changes, have become a participant in the semifinal meeting, where they will come face to face with the winner of the fight between Complexity Gaming and Vitality.

Astralis started the meeting with eight won rounds in a row and mentally crushed their rivals on the move. The next 4 rounds were able to take Extra Salt for themselves, and the first half ended with a score of 10-5. After the transition, oSee with his teammates, unlike Astralis, could not show a good defense and, as a result, the team took only 3 rounds, and the match on Nuke ended with a result of 16-8.
