It hasn’t been a good month for their previous organisation either – promising UK org Torpedo have sadly disbanded.
The playoff fixtures can be found on the ESL Play website.
The winners bracket will get underway next Monday (May 1st) and the losers bracket the week after.
Four winning players will reach the finals, taking place at the MCM London Comic Con on May 26th to 28th. Let’s just hope there aren’t any streakers for ESL’s Matt Loftus and a ‘jedi’ to deal with this time.
