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.
