MarKE and eUnited are looking to start 2020 off on the right foot

The first two rounds of Mythic Cup 5 played out yesterday, leaving only four teams standing by the end of it.

The Round of 16 proceeded much as would be expected, and relatively quickly, with only two series going to three maps.

The first of those was the match between LiViD and Advanced winners Recon 5, where the latter just managed to take their own pick of Mirage over the line before the French Canadians buckled down to take comfortable wins on Nuke and Inferno.

The second series to go the distance was an all-MDL bout between Bushido Boyz and Rap Gang. Following the same blueprint as the LiViD and Recon 5 match, the Boyz narrowly won Inferno before Rap Gang, fielding Tyson "TenZ" Ngo in place of Erick "Xeppaa" Bach, roared back to take the following two maps.

Three 2-0 scorelines in the quarterfinals belied how close the second round of play was, as LiViD took Singularity to overtime on both maps, and Rap Gang went into triple overtime with eUnited.

Meanwhile, Rugratz took care of business against Monstars, and Divine, once again fielding David "Sneaky" Polster in place of the vacationing Robert "robby" Brown, were unable to overcome the Just For Fun mix.

The match between Just For Fun and eUnited is of particular interest, as it will pit free agent Anthony "vanity" Malaspina against his former teammates.
