CyberZen have secured a spot at the SL i-League StarSeries XIV global finals after topping the Chinese division with a 3-1 victory over TyLoo (16-13 on de_cache, 19-17 on de_inferno, 12-16 on de_mirage and 22-20 on de_overpass).

The top eight teams from the online portion of StarSeries China gathered in Shanghai for the national finals, with one spot at the global event up for grabs.

TyLoo went into this double-elimination tournament as favourites and expectedly booked their spot in the grand final in convincing fashion after beating Wings, Born of Fire and CyberZen in the Upper Bracket. Bin "Savage" Liu's side looked way off the pace against TyLoo but got a shot at revenge by beating Wings 2-0 in the Consolidation Final.

In the best-of-five title decider, CyberZen came out with fire in their bellies and took a 2-0 lead following close wins on de_cache and de_inferno. YuLun "fancy1" Cai confirmed his billing as one of China's most in-form players and inspired TyLoo to pick up a win on map three, de_mirage, but CyberZen kept their composure and applied the finishing blow with another dramatic overtime victory, this time on de_overpass.
