Map 3, Overpass, originally ended 13-16 with Fnatic winning the the map and the series. However, Team LDLC.com filled a complaint against "pixel-walking", suggesting that Fnatic had performed a boost that was against the rules. DreamHack originally decided that the second half of the map would be replayed for the reason that the position of the boosted player allowed the player to see through transparent textures. Fnatic then filed a complaint against a boost that LDLC performed, which also allowed them to see through transparent textures. Additionally, DreamHack announced that they discovered that both positions allowed for an "immortal bug".[3] Fnatic ended up forfeitting.[4]
