After the dissapointing run at Worlds, Ozone entered Champions Winter strong, going 5-1 in the groupstage, only losing one game to Najin White Shield. In the quaterfinals, they swept CJ Entus Frost in a clean 3-0 series, sending Ozone to face Najin White Shield again in the semifinals. Ozone took the match 3-1, making them face the uptil-then undefeated SK Telecom T1 K in the finals. SKT T1 K continued their undefeated run in the finals, sweeping Ozone 0-3.
Just as in 2013, White entered the World Championship again as one the heavy favourites.

White went on to face their sister team, korean 1st seed Samsung Galaxy Blue, in the semifinals. White had not been able to win a series against their sister team up until this point, making many think it would a hard-fought match, although White were still favourites. White went on to take everybody by surprise and do what they had not been able to before, and swept Blue in a convincingly clean 3-0.
Having only lost one game thus far, White entered the finals as the obvious champions. They would face of against chinese Star Horn Royal Club, who, after losing to SKT T1 K in 2013, was making their second consecutive finals run.
