dapr was joined by his teammate Jonji in this month's top ten list

dapr leads the way in March player ranking

Between MDL and Flashpoint, the BNB/FPX entry took full advantage of the global shift to online.

In a March that was almost exclusively played online due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we take a look back at North America's top online performers with ten or more maps played.

The events considered for the creation of these rankings were the ESL One Rio Americas Minor Closed Qualifier, both the regular season and postseason of ESEA MDL Season 33, eFire Master League Season 1, and the Flashpoint 1 and it's Global Qualifier.

It was a whirlwind month for Michael "dapr" Gulino and the Bad News Bears lineup, who played 18 MDL matches in 15 days to meet ESEA's regular season deadline, then won two playoff series to secure a spot in the Season 33 Global Challenge. The team then ultimately found themselves playing under the FunPlus Phoenix banner after an embarassing series of gaffes for the organization.

One of dapr's top highlights in a very successful month was Bad News Bears' MDL playoff series against Team One, where he dropped 61 kills a two map sweep, and put up a 1.73 rating.

February's top online player Michael "Grim" Wince continued his strong form with a month-long rating of 1.29, good enough for second place behind dapr. Former Rugratz player Nathan "leaf" Orf rounded out the podium with a 1.23 rating.

The best-represented team in this month's top ten is Under 21, as the trio of David "Sneaky" Polster, Erick "Xeppaa" Bach, and Rahul "curry" Nemani all checked in with 1.22, 1.22, and 1.19 ratings respectively. That being said, the MDL side fell one series short of a spot at the Global Challenge after being swept by oNe in the lower bracket finals.
