In an intense Grand Final, Giant Gaming came out at the top, beating Cloud9 with a clean 3-0 score and taking the APAC North November Six Major Trophy.

Giants Gaming were in the top two seeds of APAC North stage 2, which meant they directly qualified for the semi-finals of this ‘Mini-Major’. After beating Xavier Esports in the semis, Giants advanced straight to the finals.

On the other hand, Cloud9 had to fight their way to the Grand Finals, starting from the quarter-finals. But, eventually, they managed to beat GUTS and CYCLOPS gaming and qualify for the ‘Mini-Major’ finals, which meant a rematch of the August Major was in the place.

And Giants Gaming took their sweet revenge, as they managed to beat Cloud9 without even dropping a single map. But it wasn’t easy for them at all, as Cloud9 put them to the ultimate test, taking all the maps into overtime in this best-of-five series. With some luck and great performances from SpeakEasy & HysteRiX, Giants Gaming came out at the top and are now the APAC North Division Major Champions.

Both Cloud9 and Giants gaming have qualified for the upcoming Six Invitational 2021 with 900 SI points each. Unfortunately, Xavier and CAG failed to directly qualify for the SI. But, they will have another opportunity to advance through the open qualifiers.
