The Americas Cup was the only ESL cup to be played on the new 5.0.12 patch, and concluded with Clem making up for his misstep in Europe with a cup victory. Wayne pulled off another major upset on the week with 2-1 victory over Dark in the quarterfinals, but was defeated in the semifinals by MaxPax.
