Introduction

The ESL Pro League Relegation will be in junction with ESEA MDL S26’s Global Challenge LAN Finals. Teams participating will be the second to last and third to last teams of the 6th ESL Pro League Season and the silver and bronze finishers of the EU and NA MDL S26 Premier seasons.

Careers will be made. Careers will be over (or temporarily postponed). Whoever qualifies are guaranteed a new breath of life and temporary prosperity, while the ones who fail have their careers on the line. Only two of the four can make it, and the competition is very fierce.

On the European side, the CIS giants of Natus Vincere and the Swedish hopefuls of GODSENT have been pitted against the up and coming Turkish squad of Space Soldiers and the frozen-featured and Czech-Slovak squadron Alza eXtatus.

For the North American side, the stand-in affected Ghost Gaming and mutually alike Rogue Gaming face off in grudge matches against the North American hope Rise Nation and the ex-iBP bolstered GX.

With many fan favorites on both the European and North American side, who will come out on top? Stay tuned!

Format

  • North American and European Relegation
  • Double Elimination Bracket (Best of 3 Format)
  • Top 2 advance to ESL Pro League Season 7 NA/EU
    • Bottom 2 are relegated to ESEA MDL S27 NA/EU

_________

 

Ghost Gaming

  • WARDELL, seb, ConNoR93, bee (coach/manager), Dallas (sub)

Ghost Gaming, much like their opponent, come into the Relegations without a full lineup. Albeit, the current lineup they’re using is one that they used to play the majority of their ESL Pro League and ECS matches, so there’s no denying that there is some team synergy and chemistry already.

Ghost Gaming were formerly known as Bee’s Money Crew, the Premier team that shocked the CSGO esports community by qualifying for ECS and ESL Pro League in a matter of two months. A team backed with their star AWPer WARDELL, they don’t necessarily have great team play in comparison to their tougher competitors in the aformentioned leagues. The team still have the upset potential though, as they have been known to make cinderella runs and upsets multiple times under the Ghost/BMC banner.

Overall, this team’s map pool is at their best on de_inferno, de_cobblestone, and de_train. Their map pool and tactics are very shallow, but that is usually backed up by their puggy style that seems to work all the time. Their X-factors are seb and WARDELL, both who can be marred by consistency issues. Although, in their past matches, WARDELL has been the clear carry for this team, powering them through their heavily contested bo3 against Rise Nation as the top fragger. Next is seb and Dallas, the clutcher and entry fragger, and then comes their IGL/support duo of ConNoR93 and bee.

While this team is poor overall, they have no problem beating teams of similar or lower level. As this will be a grudge match against Rogue, expect WARDELL to put up big numbers.

Rogue

  • Hiko, vice, shinobi, cadiaN, Uber (sub)

Using their sub Uber for the ESL Pro League Relegation, Rogue didn’t break a sweat by crushing GX in their own bo3. While many would expect Uber to be a downgrade to wrath, he performed admirably and held his own on LAN after a long break from competitive CS:GO.

Overall, this team doesn’t necessarily have great firepower, and are essentially the complete opposite to Ghost Gaming. They have poor firepower in terms of shinobi and Hiko, whereas vice, cadiaN, and maybe Uber can hard-carry the team in certain rounds. vice usually plays site anchor along with Uber, whereas cadiaN’s AWP plays very aggressively to get AWP frags in certain heat spots of the map.

shinobi and Hiko play duo on B sites, with Hiko being the anchor and shinobi playing support/secondary AWP. Overall, shinobi is the worst performer on this lineup, whereas Hiko has his clutch moments. Hiko’s experience is an invaluable asset to the team, even if his fragging performance isn’t necessarily up to par on most days.

Rogue didn’t perform very well in the last ESL Pro League when you look on paper, but their matches were always close. Their best maps are on de_mirage and de_inferno. If Uber can continue his performance from day 1, there is a chance that Rogue can win their way into another chance at the ESL Pro League.
