- Rainbow7-Unicorns Of Love (1-0)
- PSG Talon-V3 Esports (1-0)

Group B of the play-ins has always been very balanced and chaotic, from day one there has never been a true absolute leader. In the first two days, PSG Talon and Unicorns Of Love exchanged leadership, and the group only resolved on the last day. At the end of the fourth day, the representatives of the PCS took home the qualification, winning a very tight play-off against UOL.
The Rainbow7 manage to grab an unexpected third place, it seemed practically impossible. The first two defeats seemed to have doomed the Latin American champions, who were able to regroup to recover from a bad situation.
At the bottom of the ranking, we find LGD Gaming and V3 Esports, which had to fight each other for survival in group B. The Japanese tried with all their might to beat the fourth Chinese seed, but the gap that c ‘is currently between the LPL and the LJL. In addition, the toplaner Paz did not withstand the stress of the defeats, remaining the protagonist (in the negative) of the playoff. Despite everything, Peanut and his companions continue not to convince, too often the victim of moments of distraction and absolutely gross errors.
In the knock-out stage, LGD will face Rainbow7 again, but this time on the treacherous terrain of the best of 5. The champions of the Latin American league will be able to play their cards, but we are convinced that they will be able to do very little against the Chinese in a prolonged series.
