With ESEA Season 38 around the corner, it feels right to congratulate
Epitacio "TACO" de Melo's new punching bags the winners from ESEA's lower divisions that have secured a berth in ESEA Advanced Season 38. MetaHashCoin, Prestigious, and PAPER PLANEZ have all secured spots in ESEA's penultimate division for the coming season, by winning the Season 37 campaigns for ESEA Main, Intermediate, and Open, respectively. Seven other teams from ESEA Main will join them.

The grand final of ESEA Main pitted MetaHashCoin against the upper bracket winners, Kaged. Kaged's upper bracket advantage was immediately negated after MetaHashCoin started things off with a thirty-round win on Mirage, then followed up with progressively more one-sided victories on Nuke and Dust2. Caleb "opportunity" Davis led all players with 67 kills in the series.
The final standings for ESEA Main Season 37 are:
1. MetaHashCoin (opportunity, LaffyTs, NoM, mds, seppuku) - $3,500

Prestigious dropped just one map in the final three rounds of the ESEA Intermediate playoffs to secure their cash prize and ESEA Advanced berth. Josh "Wo0o0o" Neidert led all players with 26 and 30 frags on Dust2 and Ancient, respectively. The squad has since picked up a new banner to fly and will compete in the coming season as Uncharted Territory.

The grand finals of ESEA Open Season 37 featured a number of familiar faces, just not on the winning side. roughly speaking sported a recognizable lineup comprised of Koby "kobruh" Higgs, Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen, Alex "Mauisnake" Ellenberg, and Soham "valens" Chowdhury.
Despite their star power PAPER PLANEZ allowed roughly speaking just twelve rounds in the series as they cruised to an ESEA Advanced slot with strong wins on Dust2 and Nuke. The duo of Tony "-Clutch" Thach and David "eef" Eef were the wind beneath their side's paper wings and finished with 41 kills apiece in the series, while roughly speaking were led by 36 frags from SEMPHIS.
