iDk and Yeah flexed on Big Frames in their opener, and will look to replicate that success against Thunder Logic tonight

Group A of the eFire Master League has concluded, seeing Keep the Comms Up (formerly Station7) and Alcoholics Anonymous locking up playoff berths in the $10,000 event, while New England Whalers and District 7 have already bowed out.

Additionally, Under 21 will be taking the place of Rugratz in the Group B, after the latter team forfeited their initial match.

In the Group A Winners' match, BOOBIE did his best to carry Whalers with 30 kills and a 1.51 rating, but JonahP shouldered just a bit more for his side. The Canadian's 32 kills and 1.86 rating coupled with a 10-3 second half CT-side were enough to secure the event's first playoff berth.

Alcoholics Anonymous were able to bounce back from their opening loss to beat District 7 in a series where each team narrowly won their opponent's map pick. The decider however, was all Alcoholics Anonymous, with all five players amassing more frags than District 7's top fragger in the former of Michael "MkaeL" De Luca.
