Recon 5 have qualified for ESEA MDL Season 33 following an undefeated run through the playoffs bracket, starting as the number eight seed and managing to sustain all the way through to the grand finals, where they were met by Faint.

Faint to Advanced Grand Finals over Thunder Logic

Recon 5 entered the best-of-five grand final with a one-map advantage over Danny "cxzi" Strzelczyk's side, having already bested the team in the upper bracket semifinals to force them to fight through the lower bracket.

Faint fared worse in the rematch than the initial matchup as their map pick, Nuke, saw Recon 5 dominate on the defense, locking out the half for a 12-3 scoreline. Another four rounds following the side swap had Recon 5 swiftly claim the first map of the series, leaving them just one victory away from a spot in MDL.

Inferno began much the same, seeing Recon 5 run up an 11-4 lead on the T-side by halftime. Faint sustained following the side swap for a handful of rounds, thanks in part to a 1vs4 clutch from cxzi against pistols from Recon 5, but ultimately Norman "contii" Yeung and company were able to prevail to net a 16-8 win.
