It was also a big week for blood, sweat, and tears with the squad claiming three wins against Levitate, Keep the Comms Up, and AA. Kevin "4pack" Przypasniak popped off in the team's first two matches, claiming a 1.56 and a 2.58 rating against Levitate and Keep the Comms Up, respectively.

ex-Morning Light managed an upset of their own, claiming a 16-9 victory over oNe on the back of 28 frags from Ethan "reck" Serrano.

Though it was a week of elation for some underdogs, it was a week of frustration for Infinity. They lost both of their matches, to Keep the Comms Up and oNe, ensuring that they would head to relegation for their second season in a row.

There's still a lot to play for heading into this final week as even ex-Morning Light, who are currently sitting near the bottom of the table, are still technically in the playoff hunt and are solidly in contention for an automatic berth in ESEA MDL Season 35.
