In Group B, zunba from Lunatic-Hai was the one to draw the team. zunba chose GC Busan, which he gave a comment on, “We wanted to avoid playing against KongDoo Panthera in the Semifinals since we met them too early in the Group Stage, but LW Red got into Group A first.” He also displayed confidence on being placed 1st in the group, saying “Since it seems that KongDoo Panthera will be placed 1st in the Group, we will play against LW Red in the Semifinals.” The last spots were taken by X6-Gaming and RunAway.
