Trivia[edit]

  • Due to a referee ruling the tie-breaker in Group B incorrectly and placing Gatored ahead of DongRaeGu, an erroneous playoffs bracket was drawn. The mistake was only discovered after a complete Quarterfinal series was played where TT1 defeated Gatored 3-0. The matches were revoked and the bracket was redrawn with the correct seeding.[3] TT1 will receive prize money for placing top 4 regardless of his result in the replayed quarterfinal.
