Standing in for Faith_bian is Zhao "XinQ" Zixing.

The playoffs begin February 21 at 9 p.m. EST with Team Liquid taking on Royal Never Give Up in a best-of three game. Closing out the upper bracket matches will be Evil Geniuses against Vici Gaming. Lower bracket matches begin with Newbee versus EHOME followed by against Invictus Gaming.
