After splitting two matches on Saturday, PSG.LGD won all three Sunday matches 2-0 to claim the top spot.

Liquid, which went 3-0 on Saturday, lost 2-0 to AS Monaco Gambit and Vici, and needed to beat ASM.GMB once again in a tiebreak to claim the final spot in the Group Stage.

Vici followed its 2-0 win over Liquid with an 0-2 loss to PSG.LGD and a 1-1 split against Team Nigma to lock up the second spot.

T1 (2-8 overall) and Team Nigma (1-9) finished at the bottom of the standings.

The Group Stage will be played Monday and Tuesday, with the top three teams moving on to the upper bracket of the playoffs and the 4th-7th-place teams to the lower bracket. The eighth-place team will be eliminated.

The $500,000 tournament runs through April 4, with the winning team receiving $200,000.
