Another week of Rank S and Rank G has come to an end, although unlike last week, there were plenty of ties and underage player issues.

Rank S Recap - desi, PwnAlone, and KiiroKami qualify for Rank S Combine

The top ten for the past week of Rank S is as follows:

Rank Name $ Prize
1. us Danny "cxzi" Strzelczyk $812.50
1. us Josh "PwnAlone" Pigue $812.50
2. us David "Toy" Han $458.33
2. us Jeff "RZU" Ngo $458.33
2. us Jake "kaboose" McDonald $458.33
3. br Felipe "pavel" Costa  
4. us Owen "oBo" Schlatter  
4. us Alex "aproto" Protopapas  
5. ca Randy "Smiley" Sandoval  

Danny "cxzi" Strzelczyk and Josh "PwnAlone" Pigue split the top prize this week, with both players taking home $812. However, as cxzi is underage and PwnAlone has already booked his spot to the Combine, the third Rank S Combine spot falls to the third place finisher of the week.

Astute readers will notice that there are in-fact three such people — but only one of them is of age, being David "Toy" Han. The retired player was recently prevented from attending the WESG World Finals as the coach for CLG Red, but hopefully will have no such issues getting to Las Vegas.

Bad News Bears bring back RZU

The top ten earners for Rank S 2019 so far are as follows:

Rank Change Name Total $
1. - us Jeff "RZU" Ngo $6,370.83
2.- +2 us Danny "cxzi" Strzelczyk $5,802.50
3. -1 us Derek "desi" Branchen $5,433.33
4. -1 ca Derrick "LILMAN" Boyne $5,802.50
6. - us Chris "Slash" Petersen $4,193.73
7. - us Peter "ptr" Gurney $3,884.52
7. - us Alex "aproto" Protopapas $3,737.50
8. - ca Yassine "Subroza" Taoufik $2,945.83
9. - ca Andy "vSa" Xu $2,777.38
10. +12 us Josh "PwnAlone" Pigue $2,607.50

Over in Rank G, Ezekiel "KmZ" Hughes won the week with 102 points. The standings were:

Rank Name $ Prize
1. us Ezekiel "KmZ" Hughes $1,000
2. us Erick "Xeppaa" Bach $500
3. ca Sebastian "retchy" Tropiano $275
4. us Caleb "opportunity" Davis $250
5. us Brandon "BOOBIE" Roberts $225
6. us Koby "kobruh" Higgs $200
7. us Jack "JackZ" Zaruba $175
8. ca Sean "Inseaniac" Morrison $150
9. us Eric "Kwong" Kwong $125
10. us Sam "4sh0t" Marino $100

However, due to KmZ being underaged, he is ineligible to attend the Combine, much like cxzi. As a result, and due to the next two people also being underaged, the Rank G spot for this week will go to Caleb "opportunity" Davis. opportunity was last seen competing outside of Rank G during MDL Season 29 when he played with Think Outside the Box.

That means that the current participant list for the Rank S Combine is as follows:

Rank S Rank G
us Josh "PwnAlone" Pigue us Brandon "BOOBIE" Roberts
us Derek "desi" Branchen us Joshua "KiiroKami" Kim
us David "Toy" Han us Caleb "opportunity" Davis

jaychancE leaves Think Outside the Box to join slashLEVEL

Note: The original version of this article stated the Rank S spot for this week would be determined next week, due to the three-way tie, however neither kaboose nor RZU are 21.
