It’s a good start to the year for ORDER CS, running through MDL S30 to topple Grayhound Gaming 2-1 in the Grand Final.
ESEA MDL S30 was the first domestic competition of the year, and placing in the league would determine seeding for the upcoming ESL Pro League. With an ever increasing level of skill in the Australian scene, ESEA MDL S30 was a tight competition, with ORDER and Chiefs tying for 1st Place, and Grayhound and Breakaway tying for 2nd.
A tense playoffs bracket saw the team take a 2-1 victory over the up-and-coming Athletico squad, and a 2-0 win over Breakaway Esports, to secure their spot in the Grand Final. Grayhound had just returned from a stint in Europe attending the IEM Katowice Major, but the rival squad made short work of their journey through the regular season games to meet ORDER in the Grand Final.
It was a tense series, with Grayhound starting out hot and winning Map 1, but ORDER CS were able to rally their efforts, and secure Map 2 and 3 to take the victory, and secure 1st Seed for ESL Pro League.
