Through the various rounds of the competition, the team ranked in second place and qualified for the playoffs round.

According to the Lao Esports Federation, the team lost in the semi-finals, which made them finish in third place. But this was still a historic achievement for Lao Esports on the international scene.

Five Lao participants received bronze medals and a winning prize of USD 20,000 in the competition.
