IEM Katowice saw teams duke it out for a slice of the $250,000 in prize money, with heavyweights Fnatic and Ninjas in Pyjamas taking on each other in the grand finals in front of thousands of screaming fans.

Fnatic took home the title 2-1 in the best of three series across De_Dust2, De_Cache and De_inferno. Their crown was certainly well deserved - losing only one map throughout the whole finals event.
