The Grand Finals were played out in two maps: Corrupted Keep and Molten Falls. Mikaelsson took Corrupted easily with a 14-6 scoreline, whereas the decider, Molten, was a bit more of a grind.

Only eight seconds into “Golden Frag”, Mikaelsson surprised the Dane over by Mega and secured the last frag to take the series 2-0. This means that the Swede will be attending the World Championships this year at QuakeCon 2023 in Grapevine, TX, which will also be his first Premier Quake event. enesy, on the other hand, can still try his luck in the European Qualifier which will happen on the 27th of May.
