After a triple chicken-dinner snag, Entity Gaming grabbed the top spot with 220 points, while fan-favourites SouL came hot on their heels with 210, and a single chicken-dinner. SouL's Naman Mathur, aka MortaL, claimed Tencent's 'fan-favourite' award, and addressed fans, supporters and rivals in a lengthy Facebook post.

Unexpectedly, Mumbai-based MortaL not only dedicated their effort in the tournament to the Indian Army, but also announced that he would be donating his share of the earnings to them as well. According to the National Defence Fund website, donations made will primarily fund technical scholarships and the families of ex-servicemen in the forces - quite the noble cause.
