T1 and Fnatic will play at the League of Legends World Championship quarterfinals after emerging from Group C with victories Saturday in Berlin.
T1 finished with a 5-1 record to earn the group's top seed, while Fnatic finished 4-2 after double round robin play. The teams join Griffin and G2 Esports of Group A and FunPlus Phoenix and Splyce of Group B in the knockout stage beginning next weekend.
The winners from Group D will be determined Sunday. The full schedule can be viewed here.
The event features 16 teams divided into four groups for a double round robin of single-game matches. The top two teams in each group advance to the best-of-five quarterfinals, which take place Oct. 26-27 in Madrid.
Saturday's slate saw T1 beat Royal Never Give Up and Clutch Gaming and lose to Fnatic -- their only setback of the group stage. Fnatic rebounded from a 1-2 start earlier this week to win all three of their matches Saturday and advance.
Royal Never Give Up, which began the day 2-1, lost two of their three matchups to finish third at 3-3. Clutch Gaming went 0-6.
The best-of-five semifinals are scheduled for Nov. 2-3 in Madrid, with the best-of-five final to be held Nov. 10 in Paris. The championship team will receive 37.5 percent of the prize pool, set at a minimum of $2,225,000. The runner-up will get 13.5 percent of the prize pool.
