NA – Penny for Your Thought
CN – Popped CD No Skill
NA – 3 Amigos

Group B
EU – Playing with Fire
KR – Push Push
EU – Bleached Bones

Six matches will be played on October 31:

Playing with Fire vs. Death Innovators
Push Push vs. Bleached Bones
Group A: Winner vs. Winner

All eight teams will still be in the game heading to Anaheim the following week, with the group winners sitting pretty in possession of two of the final four spots in the semi-finals.
