The ESL Open Cups schedule was adjusted slightly starting in Week #174, with the Korean Cup being moved forward from Sunday to Monday. All cups are now played on Monday (NA or EU time zone).
There was a surprise winner on the Korean server, with Classic taking down DRG, Oliveira, Solar, and herO on his way to victory. More familiar names adorned the top of the standings tables in the two other regions, with Clem defeating MaxPax in the European Cup finals, and MaxPax later making up for it by winning the Americas server cup over Dark.
In the non-ESL weeklies, Solar won Kung Fu Cup #4 while herO won KSL Weekly #9.
