MDL Week 7 Recap - FURIA unleashes their fury

Just eight matches played out over the past week, with Luminosity participating in five of them. Only one win went the way of the Brazilians out of the matches they played, with Henrique "HEN1" Teles helping to snatch away a 16-14 win on Overpass against Denial. A 13-16 loss to Spacestation marked one of Luminosity's narrow losses this week, with their remaining matches seeing them fall 4-16 to FURIA, 8-16 to iNTACT, and most surprisingly, 16-19 to The Fundamentals. 

Luminosity wasn't the only Brazilian squad that The Fundamentals took on, with FURIA initially taking a 16-8 win at the start of the week against them. Despite their strong performance against Luminosity, The Fundamentals were completely dismantled by oNe the following day, with Victor "iDk" Torraca powering his team to the only 16-0 win of the season thus far.
