Invictus Gaming can't catch a break. EHOME's 3-2 victory over them means that they secure a slot at the Nanyang Championship finals.

This is the second tournament that EHOME qualified for over iG. On Sept. 23, EHOME defeated iG 3-1 and secured their ticket to ESL One New York 2015.

EHOME will compete against the likes of CDEC Gaming and LGD-Gaming for $200,000 USD at the Nanyang Championship, which will take place on Oct. 26 to Nov. 1 in Suntec City, Singapore.

EHOME were initially knocked into the Loser's Finals 2-1 by iG, but after a clean sweep of CDEC Youth, they earned their rematch in the Grand Finals.

The series was back and forth as EHOME and iG traded games off each other. EHOME took Game 1 on the back of Cty's Storm Spirit and old chicken bulldozed buildings on Lycan. iG fired back in the next game and punished eLeVeN's incredibly greedy third item, Moon Shard, on his Tiny. EHOME took Game 3 with an unkillable Leshrac, while iG tied up the series with a clutch Silencer pick up against EHOME's Storm Spirit and Slark.

In the deciding game, iG somehow let Leshrac through the first ban phase and EHOME drafted the hero as their first pick. iG had a plan though, and picked up a surprise Brewmaster as their last pick. iG's draft worked wonders in the early game, but they were clearly on a time limit playing against Leshrac. EHOME held back the tide and their lineup came online, defeating iG by the 50 minute mark.
