Team steel wins MDL All-Star match
The first ever MDL All-Star match has concluded, with Team steel walking away with the victory. After two map bans, the community voted on the maps to be played. The maps were then chosen as Inferno, Mirage, and Cobblestone.
Team freakazoid started off better, getting up 7-4 on the Terrorist side. However, Team steel made a comeback and off of a huge performance from Austin "crashies" Roberts, Team steel dominated the second half and took Inferno 16-8.
The first half of Mirage was also very contested, with an 8-7 scoreline for Team steel. Team freakazoid had a much better Terrorist side though, and with the 32 kills of Will "dazzLe" Loafman, Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir's men fought back and took the second map 16-12.
Neither team could string together many consecutive rounds on Cobblestone, although Team steel still came out on top with a 9-6 lead at the half. This time it was Matt "Pollo" Wilson who stepped up for his team, and eventually Team steel came out with the victory 16-8 on map three and 2-1 in the series.
Each of the five winning players will take away a prize of $1,000, while the losing team will receive $250 total.
