However, starting out on Tourney7 it was Rapha that took control of the match, countering Dahang's playstyle almost perfectly. While Dahang was playing brilliantly he just couldn't do anything and ended up only getting two points on the scoreboard against Rapha's eleven. DM13 would be more of the same, Rapha playing great, being prepared for the aggressive and risky moves Dahang tried to pull off and denying him the chance to get a frag. The map ended 11-0, once again in favor of Rapha and things were looking bleak for Dahang as losing a single map would mean losing the final.
However, going into Tourney9 Dahang decided to not give up and put up a fight worthy of a champion. Control went into the hands of Rapha who quickly gained a three frag lead but Dahang slowly took away more and more of the map. Going into the fifth minute of the match he was down 6-1 but then he challenged for an armor and got a frag. Not wasting any time he quickly tied the game and continued to get the lead. The last minute consisted of Rapha chasing a stacked Dahang that didn't give away anything cheaply, score 8-11.
Ztn started out even with both players playing a good game, denying the other any chance to get a frag. It would take four minutes until the first frag, giving Rapha the lead. But a hurt Rapha wasn't able to defend red armor from Dahang who chased him down, got a few quick frags and then controlled the map until the last minute. Dahang making it a 2-2 match by winning Ztn 5-9.
DM6 started with Rapha getting a better stack but Dahang having the railgun. Showing how important the railgun can be early on during DM6 he used it to remove all of Rapha's armor and get map control. Four minutes of solid control gave Dahang four frags but with Rapha taking away more and more of his health he couldn't continue to control the items. However, an attack by Rapha at yellow armor that should have been a frag went horribly wrong as Dahang with less than 40 health was able to get it instead, allowing him to increase his lead.
However, he was still weak and Rapha could keep control of DM6. With only one minute left the game was a tie but some great attacks gave Dahang the advantage and the map. Winning DM6 6-9 and the final 2-3.
