PwnAlone and the Whalers will face off with Russian Canadians to start their campaign for ESL Pro League
The regular season of ESEA MDL Season 35 has come to an end, seeing New England Whalers go back-to-back as regular season champions despite having their perfect season spoiled by Rugratz. RBG and Depth both reached playoffs in their debut MDL seasons.
The focus now shifts to postseason play, where we will crown a ESEA MDL Season 35 champion and send that team to lucky Season 13 of ESL Pro League, all by the end of this week.
