Day one, Aug. 24
The first day of the Teamfight Tacitcs OCENA Qualifier Finals featured a total of five rounds. Only the top eight players, with the highest total points, advanced onto day two. Points were awarded per finish in each lobby, with eighth place earning one point and first place, eight points.
The first round in the feature lobby was fought in a normal Galaxy, with comps like Cybernetics and Mech placing in the top four throughout all three lobbies. Winners in round one were M35S WowitsPat, and Kiyoon.
Agon had disconnected during round one due to a power outage and was unable to connect via mobile to play in round two. This left lobby B in round two with seven players, as opposed to eight, and one of the most likely players to advance getting bumped due to circumstances beyond his control.
Standings heading into round two featured Grandvice8, PoltSC2, and ReplayReplay on the heels of the round one winners. Not too far behind the leaders was CottonTail, RobinSongz, k3soju, Delicious Milk, and Mismatched Socks.
Sphinx in the feature lobby was on the brink of elimination but slotted into Astro Sniper for a win-streak that would earn him a first-place finish. RobinSongz also finished first in lobby A, and OUBO in lobby B.
After two rounds of gameplay, RobinSongz and Grandvice8 were at the top of the leader board with 14 points. Close behind them was PoltSC2 at 13 points, along with OUBO, Mismatched Socks, k3soju, ReplayReplay, and M35S at 12 points.
The feature lobby was in Binary Star, with Kiyoon earning the first-place finish with Astro Sniper. Also finishing in first was Mismatched Socks in Lobby A, playing Blademaster with a perfect Master Yi, and Razza in lobby C.
Heading into round four, Agon was back on the scoreboard, able to return in round three. To keep scoring fair in regards to tiebreakers, Agon was given a score of zero for round two.
