Reality Rift helped themselves with a sweep on the final day of round-robin play at the OMEGA League: Asia Divine Division tournament on Saturday.

Starting the day in fifth place in Group A, Reality (2-3 match record, 6-6 map record), jumped into third place with the 2-0 win over Adroit Esports (2-3, 5-8).

The win advances Reality into the lower bracket of the playoffs, giving them a bye for the play-in stage. DeMonster finished third in Group B.

The final round-robin match saw Blaze (2-3, 5-7) hold off EHOME.Immortal (1-4, 3-8) in Group B play with a 2-1 victory.

Sunday's play-in matches will feature Adroit taking on EHOME.Immortal and Blaze facing Execration (2-3, 5-8) with the winners advancing to face either Reality or DeMonster (3-2, 4-6) in the lower bracket.
