“This time we did it, making it to the finals for the FIRST time in history,” fourth-seeded Top Esports posted on Twitter. “We thank our team for delivering such an inspiring victory, also our fans for your love and support.”

Top Esports await the winner of Monday’s second semifinal between No. 2 seed JD Gaming and No. 3 seed FunPlus Phoenix.
