Overview

The LATAM Regional Finals follow the LATAM Online Qualifier series. Teams invited to the event include three teams from Mexico, three teams from Brazil, one team from Colombia, and one team from Chile/Argentina.

The most intense match of day 1 occurred in Group B, between Mexico's Chosen Squad and Colombia's Insane Onfire. Chosen Squad took the first game of the series, but Insane Onfire fought back to win Game 2, creating the only Game 3 scenario of the tournament's group stage. In the initial game, both teams captured two flags and finished tied, forcing a tiebreaker. Insane Onfire roared out to a 2 flag lead, but Chosen Squad lead a stunning comeback, capping three flags to win 3-2. Both teams would advance from the group.
