Infused replied in similar fashion, dominating their map pick and taking the series to a decider by winning 16-6 on cache in strong reply to their first map defeat. With the series tied at 1-1 it was De_Cobblestone that would be the decider. It was a tense and nervy game with the teams trading blow for blow in what proved to be a very tight game. Team Infused managed to come back from behind to rescue the game from the brink of defeat with some strong rounds and forced the game into overtime.
