MLG Pro League Season 3: Week 1 Recap (Post-Reset)
To prevent the DDoS attack problems that caused this reset in the first place, all matches post-reset are being pre-recorded on undisclosed dates and times.
Here is a brief day-by-day recap of each match from the past week of the MLG season.
Day 1 (8/12):
- Denial eSports 3-1 Epsilon.NA
- iSolation Empire 3-1 OpTic Nation
- OpTic Nation 3-0 Epsilon.NA
- iSolation Empire 3-1 Denial eSports
- Denial eSports 3-1 OpTic Nation
- Epsilon.NA 3-2 iSolation Empire
Day 1 was a strange start to the new season, filled with a bunch of upsets if you keep in mind how teams were playing prior to the reset. Denial eSports was able to take down both Epsilon.NA and OpTic Nation 3-1, but fell to iSolation Empire 3-1. iSo also took down OpTic Nation 3-1, but lost 3-2 to Epsilon, ending the night with a record of 2-1. OpTic Nation went 1-2 on the night, as they took Epsilon down 3-0 and lost 3-1 to both Denial and iSo. Epsilon also closed the night with a 1-2 record, rounding out the first day of the new season.
Day 2 (8/13):
- FaZe Clan 3-2 Team EnVy
- Team Kaliber 3-2 TCM Gaming
- TCM Gaming 3-2 FaZe Clan
- Team EnVy 3-0 Team Kaliber
- FaZe Clan 3-0 Team Kaliber
- Team EnVy 3-1 TCM Gaming
On Day 2, FaZe Clan started right where they left off before the reset, with a 3-2 win against Team EnVy and a 3-0 win over Team Kaliber before shockingly falling to TCM Gaming 3-2. That was TCM’s only win of the day, as they followed up that impressive win with a 3-2 loss to Team Kaliber and a 3-1 loss to EnVy. EnVy was able to come away with two victories after their loss to FaZe, taking down Team Kaliber 3-0 and TCM 3-1, while Team Kaliber went 1-2, losing 3-0 to both FaZe and EnVy before earning a 3-2 win over TCM.
With only two days, the beginning of the reset was short and simple. Check back here after next week's games to stay updated on the league.
