Here come the complaints about last-minute reseeding

ESEA have reseeded the bracket for the upcoming MDL Relegation tournament after learning that XFORCE does not plan to field a roster to fight for their slot in MDL. The news comes just a day before the start of the tournament, seeing 14 of the 15 teams up against new opponents.

With XFORCE out, the bracket has been reseeded by bumping up each team originally seeded below XFORCE up by a seed. This means that MWNL, who had the top seed, are granted a bye to advance to the second round of the upper bracket. The change also has the knock-on effect of splitting up the controversial matchup between oNe and Big Frames, who already played in the grand finals of ESEA Advanced Season 28 with oNe emerging with a dominant 2-0 win.

With these changes, the eight matchups for the first round of MDL Relegation are as follows:

us MWNL (1) vs.         BYE
us ETHEREAL (9)  vs.  us Big Frames (8)
us Infamous (5) vs.  us Geostorm (12)
us Whatever It Takes (13)   vs.  us Vikings (4)
mx Forty Six and 2 (3) vs.  co VAULT (14)
us Hysteria (11) vs.  us subtLe (6)
br oNe (7) vs.  us The Fundamentals (10)
us Glockoma (15) vs.  ca ex-Atmosphere (2)
