ESEA MDL Season 29 EU & NA set to kick off

The European and North American divisions of ESEA MDL Season 29 will kick off with 24 and 20 teams, respectively.

The 29th season will have Global Challenge LAN finals and promotion to ESL Pro League as rewards after the previous season, which had neither, was won by 3DMAX in Europe and Bravado in North America.

The European division will have 24 teams with all sides playing 16 best-of-ones in the regular season. The top eight squads will move on to the best-of-three playoffs. The top three teams will earn a spot at the ESEA MDL S29 Global Challenge.

The new ESEA MDL season starts today

Additionally, the top two sides will play a match on LAN for a spot in ESL Pro League Season 9 Europe. The loser of that match and the third placed team from the playoffs of ESEA MDL Season 29 will take on the 12th and 13th placed teams from ESL Pro League Season 8 for the final two spots in Season 9.

Here is the team list for ESEA MDL Season 29 Europe:

The promotion and relegation will work as follows for ESEA MDL Season 29 Europe:

1-2. ESEA MDL S29 GC + EPL Season 9 qualifier match

Nah don't over exaggerate, although I agree EU Advanced > NA MDL
2018-09-18 23:54
EU Cs lol I agree, its quite funny, funny how Tier 3 EU equals or is higher level than Tier 2 NA, and yet NA/AU still get equal treatment and have same prize pool in MDL. I think NA/AU MDL shouldn't be on HLTV, or have bettings on it, maybe only playoffs. I think in a season or two you could even have EU Advanced on HLTV, maybe if NA/AU MDL improves they could deserve HLTV matches in 3+- seasons
