vanity was absolutely lights-out in Chaos' dismantling of Mythic

Chaos dominate Mythic to win ESEA MDL Season 34

Mythic were no match for Chaos as the top MDL side claimed a quick 3-0 over them.

Chaos have won ESEA MDL Season 34 in a dominant fashion, taking down Mythic 3-0 in the grand finals, to claim the $20,000 top prize.

Tonight's matches started off with Mythic notching another upset as they overcame Recon 5 in a 2-1 series. Starting on Dust2, the two sides were evenly matched trading 8-7 halves to force the first map into overtime. Recon 5 decisively won overtime, winning four rounds in a row to take Dust2 19-15. Moving into Inferno, the two squads were evenly matched once again, with Mythic trailing by a single round heading into their T-side. On their T-side, bolstered by a massive effort from Kaitlin "keiti" Boop, Mythic dominated Recon 5, winning Inferno 16-11 and forcing the series onto Vertigo.

Seemingly bolstered by their victory on Inferno, Mythic decisively won their opening T-side winning the half 9-6. After switching sides, Mythic continued their good as they mounted a 7-2 CT-side to take the map 16-8 and win the series 2-1.

Unfortunately for Mythic, Chaos proved to be too large an upset to bag as the top MDL squad took them down 3-0 without too much opposition. Things were looking up for Mythic on Nuke as they managed to hold Chaos at bay, even winning their CT-side 8-7. Moving onto their T-Side, Mythic's lead quickly dwindled as Chaos won the first three rounds in a row before dominating on their CT-side to take Nuke 16-11.

After a decent performance on Nuke, Mirage turned out to be a complete slaughter for Mythic as Chaos put up an immaculate CT-side, winning the first ten rounds in a row. By the end of the half, Mythic managed to scrounge together two rounds, with one of them coming from  a bungled defuse by chaos. After switching sides, Chaos quickly closed out the map and the series with a 16-2 finish. Notably Mirage saw a career best performance from Anthony  "vanity" Malaspina, with the player ending the map with an incredible 2.85 HLTV rating.

Dust2 Birthday cake!
Was pretty nice watching fl0m's stream last night, he seems like a good guy and I agree with his sentiments regarding the NA scene right now

EDIT: Tier 2-3 NA scene
