Nurfed and the boys are headed for MDL

Big Frames and Forty Six and 2 have become the next two teams to advance from the Season 28 Relegation tournament to snag a spot in ESEA MDL Season 29. They join oNe and Infamous, who advanced from the upper bracket yesterday night for spots of their own.

Big Frames took down ETHEREAL in a swift 2-0 series, picking up 16-6 victories on both Mirage and Inferno. Big Frames kicked off Mirage with 5-1 lead, but found the score quickly evened up as they found only a single round in reply to ETHEREAL's five. With the final trio of rounds in the first half going their way, Big Frames cruised to a map win as a 7-0 spree on their T side brought the map to a quick finish.

A very similar scene unfolded on Inferno as Big Frames opened up their T side with a 6-0 lead only for ETHEREAL to even the score with six rounds of their own. In a mirror of the first map, Big Frames quickly garnered the final trio of rounds from the first half before sliding their way to a 16-6 finish in the second half.

Vault and Forty Six and 2 also went head-to-head in the opening halves of the two maps that they played, with Forty Six and 2 coming out victorious on Inferno (16-9) and Mirage (16-12).

A back-and-forth trade kicked off Inferno, with Vault coming out on top to work their way up to a 7-3 lead. Forty Six and 2 were able to fight back for four of the remaining five rounds in the half to give themselves a fighting chance as they swapped onto their CT side.

That margin was hardly needed as the Forty Six and 2 defense completely shut down the Vault offense in the second half. Only a single round went to the Colombian side before the CTs from Forty Six and 2 brought their map pick to a close 16-9.

Glockoma and Geostorm relegated back to Advanced

Vault's pick of Mirage saw Forty Six and 2 crew work their way up to a 7-1 lead, but resilience from Vault kept them in the running as the managed to trail by only a single round at the half. Vault narrowly pulled ahead with a pistol round win in the second half, but mustered only five rounds before their hopes were dashed and Forty Six and 2 closed out the map 16-12.
