In a reversal of fortunes from previous IEM events of the season we saw an all European final. Previously the IEM titles had been won by teams from North America and Asia.
SK Gaming had finished 3rd at IEM Guangzhou so had hoped to take the title home this time out but unfortunately it wasn't to be.
Fnatic proved their strength in the final with a 2-0 victory over SK to finish the tournament unbeaten. SK will have been a little disappointed with the result especially as Enrique Javier 'xPeke' Cedeño Martinez admitted in the post-match interview that his team had lost all recent fixtures against SK before the tournament.
None-the-less it was to be Fnatic who would win the IEM NY title and $12,000.

As a small consolation prize for SK, Adrian 'Candy Panda' Wübbelmann picked up the tournament MVP award for his brilliant AD carry play throughout the event. He took home the coveted Yellow Hoodie as well as a host of prizes.
