Endpoint beat Sprout to win ESEA MDL Season 35, advance to ESL Pro League Season 13

The European team around Kia "⁠Surreal⁠" Man has qualified for ESL Pro League Season 13.

Endpoint managed to come out on top of the league after a great run in the second part of the regular season, during which they came back from a 0-6 start in the round robin, and the playoffs, where they remained undefeated as they beat Secret, Nexus, sAw, and Sprout.

In the grand final of the 35th season, Surreal's squad defeated Sprout, winning the best-of-five with a 3-2 map score (including a map advantage after the team came from the upper bracket) despite a landslide loss on the series opener, Train.

MiGHTYMAX and flameZ will play their first Pro League season next year

The victory sees the United Kingdom-based side reach an important milestone, as the organization is set to make its first appearance in ESL Pro League in the next season, which is currently slated to take place in March-April 2021 in a studio location in Malta.

Joey "⁠CRUC1AL⁠" Steusel and company will join the twelve teams partnered with ESL in the prestigious league's 13th season as well as North American MDL winners TeamOne and ten other teams, mainly decided via ESL's world ranking.

The updated team list of the $750,000 competition after Endpoint's qualification looks as follows:

I would rather compare them to AGO, who advanced to EPL last time. Yeah, they won twice, but still weren't up to the level, and they are back in MDL. I wouldn't hope for more from Endpoint and it's not their fault - it's just the stupid franchise model.

What are you talking about? Of course it's a big archivement for endpoint and good for them, but they're still much weaker than current teams. I guess you would be enthusiastic if rugratz played in pro league.

#EZ4END For real, this is huge for Endpoint, what a way to end the year for them, imagine what FlameZ and Cruc1al can do on the big stage. Commiserations to Sprout, too - I honestly wish both teams could qualify.

Endpoint is insane, TOP 20 team for me. Sprout is really good, but Endpoint was even better this match. Deserved qualification.
