In the 2nd map, Lotus, Heretics took control of the early half of the match with a decisive pistol round retake. PRX tied everything up well with their response. They won the following few rounds handily until MiniBoo showed up and gave TH hope with a 3K. Heretics quickly gained the momentum they required to tie the game and then seize the initiative. Things were a little back and forth at the half. TH was able to gain a narrow advantage, which they hoped would fuel their success in the 2nd half. Paper Rex quickly gained the advantage after d4v41 eliminated three opponents. Something extended their lead with a 4K Outlaw play after that. An overpowering surge onto C Site and a KJ Lockdown knotted the game at nine. However, PRX’s came next, regaining the lead. Benjyfishy’s stunning flank got them back to a draw. To get to map point, TH gave it their all. It paid off, forcing a third and winning the map.

Split was the decisive map, and Team Heretics dominated the game by taking an early 6-2 lead on defense. Nevertheless, Paper Rex struck back forcefully with four consecutive to tie the half, helped along by something’s Jett. f0rsaken’s Raze completely outclassed Heretics in the defensive department, going 14/2/5 in the 2nd half and letting his opponents win just one offensive round. Paper Rex ended the game 13-7 to eliminate Team Heretics, despite a 6-6 score at half.

With an amazing +10 differential on Raze, an agent he hadn’t played with all season (he was previously on Yoru), f0rsaken topped the standings.
