Going into this matchup TSM had the higher seed. And TSM chooses Icebox as the first map, with 100T choosing Split and the decider map being Ascent.
Map 1: Icebox
This map was TSM’s map pick, but initially, 100 Thieves had the lead. However, after the 7-5 first half TSM slowly started coming back and took the game to overtime. And going into the Overtime TSM just seemed more dominant which led them to win the first map with a score of 15-13.
Map 2: Split
Even though Split was 100T’s pick, TSM was just dominant in the first half, as they when 10-2. And looking at this score we might guess that TSM took the dub. But 100 Thieves didn’t let it go and came back to show TSM why they choose this map. 100T won the map with a score of 14-12, coming from 10-2.

It’s good to see that TSM has come a long way from their performance in the VCT. At the same time, this is not the last chance for 100T, hope they reset and come back stronger in the NA VCT Main Event.
