MDL Week 6 Recap - Singularity reaches the peak
MDL continues onward into its seventh week, with the self-aware gang rapid evolving, eventually putting them at the top of the leaderboard with a 10-4 record and a +77 round-difference.
After being recently sponsored by a European organization, Singularity have taken the crown for the time being. However, Singularity may be upended in the coming weeks, as the Brazilian oNe dominated the gang on Overpass 16-3, hampering the team's momentum just a smidge.
This week saw the stream teams Mythic and Old Guys Club clash on Inferno, with the club of old guys taking down the also-fairly-old Mythic club. Old Guys Club saw similar results against Vault and Think Outside the Box, shooting them up to 10th in the leaderboard, even with a loss to Bravado.
Having recently undergone some odd roster changes, Vision's struggle to find their footing in MDL continues, with the team falling to 14th this week. The team played only one game this week against cantwinalan, with the team with no LAN wins taking Mirage in a 16-12 game. Vision currently sit even with a 6-6 record, but with matches against oNe and Swole Patrol coming up next week, the future does not bode well for the former MDL finalists.
The aforementioned unsponsored and newly-reformed cantwinalan found two dominant wins this week against two sponsored teams in the form of Vireo.pro and Vision. Bringing on the former Dignitas player Mitch "m1tch" Semago, the team look to rapidly climb up the rankings, with the team already up in fifth, overcoming notable teams such as Spacestation.
Spacestation have made themselves out to be one of the most anticipated teams this season, with some expecting them to qualify for Pro League. However, that hype has been hampered slightly with this weeks results, as the squad came under two crushing defeats this week, with Singularity dominating the airborne squad 16-4 and Josh "PwnAlone" Pigue leading Vireo.pro to a narrow 16-14 win against Spacestation. As a result, the team have dipped slightly in the leaderboard, falling to sixth.
Some important matches that are set to be played next week include:
|Vireo.pro vs. Old Guys Club||Oct. 30th||10PM EDT|
|Excelerate vs. cantwinalan||Oct. 31st||10PM EDT|
|Mythic vs. Swole Patrol||TBA|

|Think Outside the Box||13||1||12||-65||3|
