ESEA has reached out to representatives from both ImPerium and Addice to inform them that they will be playing a tiebreaker series to earn a spot in the ESEA MDL Season 34 Relegation tournament.
So it turns out we're playing Addice for the last mdl relegation tourney spot LMAO— Carter (@CarterJ_CS) August 8, 2020
Carter "carterJ" Richardson was excited about the opportunity, but lamented the timing of the announcement as ImPerium mutually parted ways with AWPer Ian "heretic" Carfora after thinking they were finished with ESEA Advanced Season 34. The team now find themselves in a situation where they will all be together again due to the constraints of last season's roster lock.
Addice faces a roster change situation of a different variety, as Ali "phantom" Sachs left the team about a week and a half ago to join the blood, sweat, and tears lineup as they signed with Rebirth for ESEA MDL Season 35.
Both teams will be expected to find a mutually available time to play this tiebreaker, though ESEA prefers to have this series completed between August 9th and 14th to facilitate the creation of the ESEA MDL Season 34 Relegation bracket, as that event is scheduled to begin on August 18th.
Update: Dust2.us has been told that the tiebreaker series is officially scheduled to begin Thursday August 13th at 9PM EDT.
Ok so half of Addice joined mdl rosters so I don't think they're playing this tiebreaker match...— Carter (@CarterJ_CS) August 10, 2020
