EHOME vs Invictus Gaming — 0:2. This Chinese derby turned out to be a domination of Invictus Gaming. The team has reached the final of the Asian grid with a clear superiority, leaving EHOME behind.
Americas Semifinals: highlights review
Team Anvorgesa vs Infamous — 1:2. The battle between Team Anvorgesa and Infamous was like a constant fight, and it was either one team or another did better. After the decisive fight, Infamous just had to besiege the opponent’s defenceless throne and congratulate each other on reaching the semifinals of the American grid.
beastcoast vs Nic Cage — 2:1. The series were dramatic, but in the final confrontation of this match Nic Cage completely forgot about warding. As a result, beastcoast is preparing for a meeting with J.Storm in the semifinal of the regional grid.

Recently players from beastcoast, Neon Esports and EVOS Esports have shared their teams' goals for WePlay! Tug of War: Dire tournament and spoke to WePlay! Esports representatives on their feelings about the tournament:
Rafael "Rapy" Sicat Palo from Neon Esports: “This tournament has the top teams in Southeast Asia and playing with these guys gives us a big opportunity. We’ve recently brought back our old player, Flysolo, who is our old captain. We work a lot more on our game again, and we want to compete against the top teams in the region”. (Source)
Adit "Aville" Rosenda (hardlaner) from EVOS Esports: “We're very proud to be in this tournament because of a lot of big teams (I mean, SEA). Our goal is to do our best. We aren't expect anything, because we can get upset if reality doesn't meet our expectations”. (Source)
Eric "Ryoya" Dong from beastcoast: “We missed the last Major/Minor event of the season so, hopefully, we can get to a LAN as a team before TI, and WePlay! gives us a perfect opportunity to do just that. We need to win this online tournament to secure a spot at the LAN”. (Source)
