Extra Salt secure EPL spot over MAD Lions
It's like floppy never even left.
The fourth day of the ESL Pro League Season 15 Conference has concluded, with Extra Salt securing the first of three EPL S15 main stage spots by defeating MAD Lions in the upper bracket 2-1 (13-16 Nuke, 16-10 Ancient, 16-10 Inferno). MAD Lions have been sent to the lower bracket where they will face off against Sprout to keep their Pro League hopes alive.
The qualification shows a return to form from the Extra Salt side, who, following a failure to qualify for Pro League directly through ESEA Premier after a loss to Party Astronauts, made the decision to replace Aran "Sonic" Groesbeek with Ricky "floppy" Kemery.
While the North Americans triumphed on the top side of the upper bracket, the other side fared as one would expect with GODSENT claiming victory over Endpoint and Movistar Riders defeating Anonymo. The Brazilian and Spanish sides will fight for the second EPL spot on November 27.
The lower bracket has also been par for the course for the most part, with remaining teams Sprout and LDLC having fairly strong runs in the event so far. After falling to Extra Salt in their initial match, the majority German Sprout fought their way through the lower bracket, taking down Renewal, Endpoint, and Anonymo.
