Turkey5 relegated to ESEA MDL

Turkey5 have been relegated to ESEA MDL after losing to Windigo in the pre-relegation tournament.

The Turkish team, who took part in the tournament with the core of the ex-Space Soldiers squad that competed in Pro League Season 9 plus Beyazıt "beyAz" Körpe and Eneshan "eneshan" Tez, had been sent to the lower bracket after being soundly beaten by NiP in a quick 2-0 series in which both maps ended with a 16-2 scoreline.

The match against Windigo was not nearly as straightforward as it went to all three maps, with the Bulgarians pulling through in the end with close victories on Mirage and Dust2, which came either side of a defeat on Nuke.

paz & co will play in ESEA MDL Season 32

The defeat brings to an end the squad's three-season stay in the ESL Pro League. The team had qualified for the prestigious league in Season 7 after coming through the relegation stage while playing under Space Soldiers, and impressed immediately, reaching the LAN finals after finishing in fifth place in the online portion of the competition.

The team could not repeat that success in Season 8 as they finished outside the LAN qualification places. After parting ways with Space Soldiers and witnessing the departures of star player Ismailcan "XANTARES" Dörtkardeş and in-game leader Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli, the squad cut a frustrating figure in Season 9 as they lost all three group games and were sent to the pre-relegation tournament.

Windigo move on in the lower bracket to face NiP, who were defeated by Heretics in a keenly-contested upper bracket series. The French team, formerly known as FrenchFrogs, require just one more victory to qualify for the next edition of the ESL Pro League. The second and third-placed sides from the pre-relegation tournament will move on to the relegation stage, in which they will be joined by Sprout and Spirit.

Below you can find the schedule for the final day of the pre-relegation tournament:

Friday, August 16:

lol. that's why the halal guys in mtl got mad at me. everytim they called me stuff like that on the streets it was so fucking funny i laughed in their face then they left and jerked off in their beds. then i went home and got high.
2019-08-15 21:38
makes for horseshit traffic tho. maybe they drunk drive either way they can't follow a straight line.
2019-08-15 21:39
Yeah, he got known thanks to his fpl games. But he is not good enough to play in a pro CS team. If MAJ3R and Calyx would be in this roster instead of BeyAz and eneshan, this roster would be at least between top30-40.

I hope so. Because this team needs and IGL, paz is not used to that position and being an IGL pushes his skills backwards.
