After ten matches concluded last night and the dust settled, Brazilian squad INTZ managed to claim the first seed following an impressive 16-1 season.

Right below them with a 15-2 record is Ben's Anime Team, who managed to tear up the division after only forming in week five, while also having to play the first eight matches with coach Alan "Shakezullah" Hardeman. They notably were responsible for causing INTZ's sole loss, taking down the Brazilians 16-10 on Mirage.

Rounding out the list of teams heading to playoffs is MAC-51, who ended the season with a 9-8 record. After finishing all of their games back in week eight, MAC-51's closest competition was Monstars and Mythic, but the two squads stumbled in the final week.

Towards the bottom of the standings are Bushido Boyz, Peeker's Advantage, and Just Swing. The prospect of facing relegation once again is a tough pill to swallow for Bushido Boyz, as after a decent start to the season they didn't manage to find a single win after week five after replacing Christopher "Swahn" Swahn with Nick "zeptic" Kaoud.

As for Peeker's Advantage, they finish the season with a 5-12 record. The team were put in a difficult situation, having to finish the season with coach Alex "Mauisnake" Ellenberg after losing a number of their best performers over the course of the season.
