Over the weekend, the first cash cup of the new season unfolded, featuring the usual suspects at the top in some regions and new names in others.
In Europe, as previously anticipated, the tournament was won by the unexpected duo of Deka and HukHuk, who secured victory by tallying the highest number of eliminations. Worth noting is the impressive fourth-place finish by the French duo Floki and Andilex, who have once again ignited our dreams. It's also worth mentioning that the well-known analyst and content creator ReissHub qualified for the finals while playing with Refsgaard but ended up competing solo during the finals, ultimately finishing in last place.
In North America, the competition was truly exciting, with Acorn and Khanada, the two Dignitas players, emerging as the winners. Clix and Epikwhale secured the second position, while Bucke and Okis, who have been consistently delivering remarkable performances, claimed third place.
In Oceania, Alex and Worthy once again clinched victory, playing only five out of six games and maintaining a commanding lead of approximately 130 points over the second-place team. In Brazil, the victors were Pietriin and n3wghoost. In Asia, FuuKun11, also known as ????, and his partner, ria, secured the top spot. In the Middle East, Nachiiri and Escdark once again stood on the podium.
