For the second day in a row Keen Gaming played in the very first match, but this time Chinese squad was victorious, taking a best-of-three win over TEAM TEAM. North American team put up a fight and took a game away from the Asian favorites, but in the end, Keen Gaming was the one to guarantee themselves points in the DPC rankings. OG started with an advantage over Ninjas in Pyjamas, but the latter roared back from a deficit, picking up two wins in a row and moving to the points as well, leaving the reigning TI winners with a zero.

Going to the upper bracket, EHOME and Gambit Esports dragged the first map into the late game, where Chinese squad prevailed and took a lead before closing it out in the second map. EHOME skirmished better and deservedly guaranteed themselves a grand finals spot, while Keen Gaming took out Ninjas in Pyjamas in the lower bracket for the third time in Bucharest, keeping their chances of making to Chongqing alive until the last day.
