There's not really. Unless they want to only give 1 point for drawing, rather than having 2 BO1s and both teams getting 3 points if they tie the series.

2018-11-19 14:07
what an easy event for ldlc
2018-11-19 14:58
ima be the typical kebab and ask why no space soldiers? and i doubt ence avangar and kinguin would say no to a 150k online event
2018-11-19 15:12
Considering they are co-owners this probably won't be a one time event. Maybe they don't want to commit to another online league + rather focus on getting into minors.
2018-11-19 15:17
that also crossed my mind but even if they had a surge in success and they qualified for a shit ton events + epl they are still not quite there yet also hey kinda trend downwards lately. and ence is not on any of the leagues yet. i despise online cs but its not so bad unless you are a t1 org that hsa spost in both leagues and attend offline event regularly. in ence and ss case they are not quite there yet.
2018-11-19 15:29
ENCE are in MDL but they failed to qualify for EPL. I'd imagine they will try to get into ECS also. Also these guys look a bit sketchy with their crypto currency.
2018-11-19 15:35
i dont think another onliine league will affect mdl performance. its not hard to get to the playoffs its hard to win them so they can still take it with ease. that does sound shady tho. i dont wanna repeat of efrag or rgn. ecs is still just qualifiers ye? i dont think faceit implemented the league system yet.
