Strings didn't try to hide his alt account very hard
ESEA Open and Latin America Open concluded last night, seeing Blake "Strings" Stringer's Special Needs squad take down Alex "Mauisnake" Ellenberg's Aim High.
Aim High put up a decent fight on Inferno, but Ethan "SlaySmile" Mcfarlane led Special Needs to a 16-12 victory. On Nuke, it was former CLG Academy man Tyler "Char" Wallace who put up the big numbers for Special Needs, helping them mount a lockdown defense in the second half to secure a 16-7 map victory.
For their troubles, Special Needs have been promoted to Advanced Season 31.

Things followed much the same pattern in the Latin America final, with novacancy allowing Jaguar a comeback victory on Cache, which was followed up by a decisive victory for the majority Pro League-bound squad on Inferno.
